This recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins is one of our families favorites. A healthy snack and treat all in one! In fact I think fresh warm out of the oven, they taste almost as good as a chocolate chip cookie!
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 3/4 cups wheat flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil ( I substitute applesauce)
1/2 cup plain yogurt (I use greek for extra protein)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup ripe mashed bananas
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Fill greased or paper lined muffin cups two-thirds full. (or silicone baking cups like mine)
Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
My kids and husband gobble these up and I feel good knowing they are a healthy alternative to other snacks. Nothing left but the evidence of chocolate and a full belly on my sweet boy!
