I had a bunch of overripe bananas that my husband brought home from his trip to the Sasquatch Music Festival and decided they'd be perfect in a batch of banana muffins with some added healthy ingredients — dark cocoa powder, cinnamon, olive oil, walnuts and non-fat yogurt.
The muffins were quick to mix up and turned out great. I'm glad I took the time to take notes as I made them because the recipe is definitely a keeper.
