Cooking Corner: Chocolate Banana Muffins

Sweet, rich, and gooey, this recipe is perfect for a late night of studying. The adventure can include hoarding bananas from Slate, practicing some stoichiometry while substituting baking powder for baking soda, and making a midnight run to Safeway for chocolate chips. Unfortunately, the whole bag never seems to make it to the kitchen.

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

1 egg
1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup cocoa powder
