"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!" — Nichole

1 1/2 cups
whole wheat flour
semi-sweet chocolate chips
I made this recipe, but accidentally used 1/2 cup of milk instead of 1/4 like the recipe called for. They turned out perfectly! They were moist and delicious!
This recipe tasted like wall paper paste muffins. It did not sound like a very flavorful recipe so I added cinnamon, nutmeg, some brown sugar and decided to trust the high ratings. So sad it was not something I can rate highly. The two rating is only because one person at my house liked them.
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.
Very tasty...added 1/4 cup flaxseed in place of 1/4 cup wheat flour. Healthy!
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!
I made this per the recipe. I thought it was lacking something. Maybe salt? Maybe vanilla? Overall a good texture, but I just thought it was missing a little something.
These are really good. I was a little worried that they would be too dry, but they weren't. I love that they have a good amount of protein and fiber and they are tasty. My 5 year old loved them too. I used the mini chocolate chips instead of the regular chocolate chips and doubled the recipe. It made 26 muffins. I'm going to try to individually freeze them to have for an easy breakfast. Thanks for sharing!
Yum! Thanks so much for the recipe! There were a couple of things I did differently...I didn't have unsweetened applesauce, so I used regular. I used 1/2 cup of honey instead of white sugar, my milk was 2% rather than skim and I love vanilla so I tossed in a tsp of that. The muffins turned out moist and delicious!
