"Moist muffins with just the right combination of banana and chocolate chips. A healthy alternative to most banana chocolate chip muffins, this one uses oats and substitutes apple sauce instead of cooking oil!"

Directions

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Stir whole wheat flour, rolled oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and chocolate chips together in a bowl. Make a well in the center. Whisk eggs in a separate bowl until frothy; mix applesauce, skim milk, and banana into eggs. Pour moist ingredients into well made in dry ingredients; stir just to moisten. Batter will be lumpy. Fill prepared muffin cups about 3/4 full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of several muffins comes out clean, 16 to 18 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing to finish cooling on wire racks.

Very tasty...added 1/4 cup flaxseed in place of 1/4 cup wheat flour. Healthy!

I replaced the sugar with splenda and a little honey. I also replaced the chocolate chips with blueberries and coconut. Very moist and tasty. Will make again.

First time I made them just as the recipe stated. They were pretty tasty straight out of the oven, but after they cooled they were thick, bread-y, and chewy. My kiddos wouldn't even finish them. (and they are NOT the type to turn their nose up at Banana chocolate chip muffins). Take two I tweaked. Instant oats instead of rolled, a little vanilla and salt, and a good healthy glop of sour cream. And a tiny bit (about half Tbs) of softened butter. Now THAT was yummy. Yes, I know, I'm defeating the purpose of "healthy" - but one thing I have learned in my motherhood. It doesn't matter how healthy something is if none of your kids will eat it!
