Banana -Chocolate Chip Muffins

18 Mar

Waste not, want not. I hate to waste food, especially fruit. I had four over ripe bananas and decided to make muffins. These muffins were really quick to make, and got two thumbs up from my husband. I shared some with neighbors, who were happy to get the unexpected treat. If I were to make these regularly for breakfast, I would use either cranberries or blueberries instead of the chocolate chips.

Mix together:

  • 4 over ripe bananas mashed (1 1/2 cups)
  • 5.3 oz container of fat-free plain creek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup egg whites

Add to the mix:

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

Mix together:

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Blend the flour mixture to the wet ingredients.

  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips or berries

Fold the chips into batter. Pour batter into oiled muffins tin. Bake 15-20 minutes in 375 degree oven.
