Midnite Special


The Ingredients (for 30 to 35 pieces):

  • 170 g (or 6 oz) of stevia-sweetened, dark chocolate (I prefer CocoPolo 70% cocoa dark chocolate)
  • 2 medium bananas or equivalent, weighing approximately 320 g (or 11 oz)
  • 60 g (or 1 cup) of peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 ml (or 1 teaspoon) of vanilla extract
  • stevia equivalent of 50 g (or 4 tablespoons) of sugar
  • 3 g (or ½ teaspoon) of baking soda

    The Method:
    1. Set the oven to heat up to 200°C (or 400°F).
    2. If necessary, chop the chocolate into small pieces.
    3. Place the chocolate chips into a mixing bowl.
    4. Place the bananas into a blender or food processor and grind them into a smooth paste.
    5. Add the peanut butter, eggs, vanilla, and stevia, and grind until they are thoroughly and evenly blended.
    6. Add the baking soda and blend briefly to distribute it evenly throughout the mixture.
    7. Pour the banana mixture into the bowl with the chocolate chips and fold them together until the chocolate is evenly distributed.
    8. Place spoonfuls of approximately 25 g (or 1½ tablespoons) into mini muffin cups.
    9. Bake the muffins for 8 minutes then test for doneness with a toothpick or small skewer. Allow a minute or two more in the oven if necessary.
