Delicious! That's what teen has already declared on these muffins baked for a special guy's 5th birthday breakfast in the morning. And healthy to boot!
Teen recently baked whole wheat french bread for a 4-H nutrition fair last weekend. So instead of grabbing the regular all-purpose flour, I goggled my favorite site, Allrecipes, for a whole wheat banana muffin recipe. And then modified it a bit. I stole a pinch just to insure "quality control"! YUM is right!
Banana Whole Wheat with Chocolate Chips Muffins (aka Monkey Muffins)
(for original recipe click HERE)
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed bananas (for me that was grabbing 4 out of the freezer and defrosting in microwave)
1 cup applesauce
3/4 cup Splenda (or sugar or guava)
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin tins with cooking spray.
Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together. Blend mashed bananas, applesauce and Splenda. Blend the flour mixture and banana mixture together. Mix till blended. Fold in chocolate chips.
Fill muffin tins 3/4 full - this made 18 muffins for me. Bake 20-25 minutes in oven. Enjoy!
