How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 12-cup muffin pan.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the banana, sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla. Mix together until fully combined and set aside.

  3. Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt and add to the wet ingredients. Drop in 3 tablespoons of cocoa nibs and gently mix until dry ingredients are fully incorporated into the banana mixture.
