Chocolate Banana Bran Muffins Recipe
So easy-to-make, these treats are healthy but still satisfy my chocolate-loving family. Stir in raisin bran instead of bran flakes for a little extra flavorful fun. —Tracy Chappell, Hamiota, Manitoba
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
