Servings 12 muffins


  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 medium bananas mashed
  • 1 cup packed grated pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp rice bran oil
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chunks
  • 2 tbsp oats to sprinkle on top


  • Preheat the oven at 175 C. Keep a 12 cup muffin pan ready, lined with paper liners or brushed with oil.
  • In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients - flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder. Mix using a dry whisk to break any lumps.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk mashed bananas, grated pumpkin, egg, oil, honey and 2 tablespoons of the milk until well combined.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients. Stir gently until you get a smooth batter with no visible lumps of flour. Use extra 2 tablespoons of milk if needed. The batter should be thick and not runny.
  • Stir in most of the chocolate chips, reserving few for topping.
  • Divide the batter between the 12 muffin cups. Top with a sprinkle of chocolate chips and some oats.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until muffins are risen well and a tester comes out clean.
