Healthy(ish) Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

If you are like me, you have loads of ripened, old bananas chilling in your kitchen (because who can eat that many bananas?!) In college, I fought this scenario with making banana bread, really really unhealthy, buttery, carb-loaded banana bread, and dang- was it good. As I began my health journey, I continued to make banana bread, but I started to venture into recipes that were a bit healthier. This was a trial and error process, and trust me when I say that I have learned A LOT about baking throughout the years. 

Since I am an on-the-go kind of breakfast gal, I started to realize that banana bread was hard to transport, so naturally, I transitioned to muffins. 

This recipe was inspired by all of my mistakes (ha ha), and I sincerely hope you like them as much as we do!

Ingredients:

3 bananas 

2 eggs 

½ cup of honey 

1 tbsp of vanilla

½ cup of almond milk (or regular milk) 

1 tbsp of cinnamon

2 tsp of baking powder

½ tsp of baking soda 

½ cup of oats

1 and ¾ cups of whole wheat flour

2 tbsp of chia seeds

1 tbsp of flax seeds  

1/2 cup of chocolate chips 

Instructions: 

  1. Put ALL the ingredients in your best blender (it’s okay to add a little more milk!)
  2. After blending, add chocolate chips
  3. (optional) top with oats 
  4. Pour the mixed ingredients (about 3/4 full) in your muffin pan. 
  5. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes- check at 12 minutes for progress!
