Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins – healthier banana muffins made with whole wheat flour and honey. Tender, moist, and actually pretty good for you!
It is common knowledge by now that I like muffins, and I like to try to make things just a little bit healthier. That is where these chocolate muffins come in. I know you are saying to yourself; “chocolate muffins, healthy? Yeah right!” Just hear me out!
These banana chocolate chip muffins are full of whole wheat flour. They are sweetened with honey and the natural sweetness of the banana. And you get chocolate for breakfast, which I know is a good thing for most people. Mini chocolate chips are used here, so you use fewer of them, but still get them in each bite!
I made these while my 7 year old was at school. He came home and immediately wanted one for an after school snack. He said it just might be his new favorite muffin. I asked if he was sure, because Chocolate Chip Muffins have always been his favorite. He said these have more chocolate, so he thinks they might be his favorite. Can’t argue with that, can you?
