MMMmmmmm…. have a craving for some delicious chocolate banana muffins, but not sure how to do them up in a healthy way? Here is a great recipe from my friend Brenda’s kitchen – who just happens to be a very talented dietician as well! With a good dose of fiber and protein, they are satisfying while being nicely portion controlled as well!

Makes 16 muffins.

Wet Ingredients:

  • 3 bananas
  • 1 “kid size” container apple sauce (100 ml)
  • ¾ cup of 1% milk
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1egg white

Combine wet ingredients and mix on low speed.

Dry Ingredients:

  • 3 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup oat bran
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Add wet ingredients top dry and mix until just mixed (do not over mix… about 25 strokes).

Spoon batter into muffin pans and bake for approximately 18 mins at 350 F.
