Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Introduction

This is a tweaked recipe shared by a Spark friend. It is also my first Spark Recipe, so go easy on me. The nutritional info doesn't match exactly to what I have, but it's pretty close. These muffins are fantastic and I recommend you have plans to freeze or share them so you don't eat them all. Don't be afraid of the whole wheat flour. Due to the bananas these come out moist and delicious, not dry and compact.

This recipe makes about 24 mini muffins or 12 large ones. (It usually seems to make a little more, maybe 28 small ones or 13 large, etc.)

Ingredients

    3 medium bananas
    1 T light butter
    2 T unsweetened applesauce
    (1 T Sun Crystals, sugar, or other sweetener is optional, but I don't find it necessary)
    2 T honey
    6 T liquid egg whites
    2 T skim milk
    1 T vanilla extract
    1 t baking powder
    1/2 t baking soda
    1/4 t salt (also optional)
    1 c whole wheat flour
    1 c oats (regular rolled oats are perfect)
    6 T chocolate chips

    T = Tablespoon
    t = teaspoon
    c = cup

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine bananas, butter, applesauce, honey, sweetener if using, egg whites, milk, and vanilla until well mixed.

Add baking powder, baking soda, salt if using, and whole wheat flour and mix. Add oats and mix again. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips.

Spoon into sprayed muffin tins. Bake at 350F until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean (beware of melting chocolate covering the toothpick, though), generally between 15-20 minutes.

Allow to cool for easy removal (if you can wait that long) and enjoy.

Makes about 12 regular or 24 mini muffins.

Serving size is 1 muffin.

If making mini muffins, each will have about 65 calories, 1.5 grams fat, 1.5 grams fiber, and 1.5 grams protein.

If making regular muffins, each will have about 130 calories, 3.5 grams fat, 2 grams fiber, and 4 grams protein.

(The nutritional outcome numbers are rounded, that's why they don't match up perfectly.)
