3 large eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup mashed ripe banana
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar, oil, banana, yogurt, and vanilla to blend. In a smaller bowl, stir together whole-wheat and all-purpose flours, cocoa, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Gently stir flour mixture and chocolate chips into egg mixture just until incorporated. Spoon batter evenly into 18 paper-lined muffin cups (3/4-cup capacity; fill them all the way to the top).

2. Bake muffins in a 350° regular or convection oven until a wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs attached, about 25 minutes. Cool 10 minutes and remove from pans. Serve warm or cool.
