These Whole wheat Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins make mornings a whole lot easier! I love muffins in the morning because they are quick, easy and nutritious (if you make the right kind!) These are so good!
Muffins are a great go-to breakfast for people like me who need a little extra motivation. They freeze well, so you don’t have to make them in the morning. Plus, they are easy for a breakfast on the go (we need that more days than not!)
My son’s all-time favorite muffin is my Whole Wheat Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin. Mmmm, he’s a picky eater but I can always count on him to eat one or even two of these for breakfast or a snack. I love having a healthy treat for him that we can bake up together.
Your kids are going to love this one! Here is our favorite recipe…
½ cup oil (I use either melted butter or Coconut oil)
1 cup sugar (or sucanat for a healthier muffin)
1 ½ cups whole wheat flour (home ground makes a lighter muffin.)
½ cup white flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup mashed banana (about two bananas)
1 TBS vinegar plus enough milk to make a total of 1 cup
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Cream together the oil, sugar, and eggs. Beat until fluffy.
Add the flour, soda, and salt.
Alternate above with the banana and milk/vinegar mixture.
Add in the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
Mix well after each addition.
Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.
Using a large scoop, fill each muffin cavity ⅔ full with batter.
Bake on 350° for 20-25 minutes.
*Optional~ these can be made as a loaf, too.
To freeze, allow to completely cool, then place in a freezer bag and freeze.
