Healthy for me Dark Chocolate muffins

My mother in law is awesome at changing recipes to be more healthy.  She took a recipe from an old cooking light at made it her own.  These muffins do have a hint of banana, but the chocolate taste in them is so rich.  They taste like a healthy version of the Costco chocolate muffins.

Judys dark chocolate muffins:
12 oz prunes (Judy uses Lighter bake that you can find by the oils, all it is, is all ready stewed prunes)
3/4 ripe banana (I use 2 bananas)
2 eggs (or use egg substitute)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cocoa
2tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup 60% cocoa chips

If you don't use the Lighter bake, stew prunes in boiling water for 20 minutes and strain and cool.
In a blender, blend prunes, banana, and eggs until smooth.
In a large bowl mix dry ingredients with a wisk and fold in prune banana mixture just till mixed. Don't mix too much.
Fill cupcake liners almost full and bake for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

I like them cold out of the fridge or warmed up.  Really gets me through those sweet cravings!
