Mocha Banana Muffins

Had a few minutes before the buses came this afternoon and decided to experiment. My kids are as addicted to chocolate as I am and can be a hard sell in the morning. Maybe they'll go for these.

3/4 c all purpose flour
3/4 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c oat bran
3/4 c sugar
2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 t instant coffee granules
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon

Mix these dry ingredients together.

1 banana, mashed well
1 egg
1 c buttermilk (add 1 T lemon juice to scant cup milk, let stand 5 minutes)
1 T canola oil

Whisk these ingredients and then gently blend into dry mixture.  Pour into prepared muffin tin and bake at 350 for 15-16 minutes.
