This is a muffin adapted from a Cook Yourself Thin recipe. I left the nuts out because not everyone in my house can eat them plus they add fat. This is a muffin adapted from a Cook Yourself Thin recipe. I left the nuts out because not everyone in my house can eat them plus they add fat.
Number of Servings: 20


    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup whole-wheat flour
    1/2 cup rolled oats
    2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    2 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 ripe banana, mashed
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    2 large eggs
    1 1/4 cups reduced-fat buttermilk
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a 12-muffin tray with paper liners. Set aside.

2. In a standing mixer, combine the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, rolled oats, ground cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt and mashed banana, and blend on low speed for 2 minutes. Add the brown sugar, vegetable oil, eggs and reduced-fat buttermilk, and blend for 2 minutes on medium speed. Add the vanilla extract and mix until well combined.

3. Using an ice cream scoop, portion the batter evenly into the muffin tin, and top each muffin with 3 to 4 chocolate chips. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Once muffins are baked through, remove them from the oven and let cool. Serve.

    I am addicted to this book - there were really good but I think by adding the .5 cup of walnuts they would have been better - I also think I needed a riper banana. I ate 2 - around 2 hours ago and I am still full and satisfied! - 6/8/09

    This is a good recipe but i really feel it needs more banana. Next time we make it we will use 2 or 3 bananas instead of one. It tasted like a plain muffin. My husband is a chef & he said one banana for 12 muffins is a little low. the additional 1 or 2 bananas will only add about 20 calories each - 8/16/09
