Banana Chocolate Soufflé
3 large egg whites
1/3 cup sugar
2 large, ripe bananas (about 1 1/2 cup, smashed)
3 tablespoons mini chocolate chips or cocoa powder (or both)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees, and butter 6 small ramekin dishes (3/4 - 1 cup capacity or other small oven safe bowls)
Beat egg whites in medium size bowl with electric mixer until stiff (you could hold the bowl upside down and it stays in place) Slowly mix in sugar with mixer until well combined. Gently fold in smashed bananas and chocolate until blended together: don't over mix or the egg whites will deflate. Divide mixture among the ramekins and bake until puffed and golden - about 15 minutes. When you remove from the oven, run a knife around the edges to help prevent deflating. Enjoy!
