Healthified Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins - Guest Post

I'm really excited to have Becky guest posting today. She has so many amazing recipes on her blog, you gotta check it out! I love the recipe she has chosen to share, it's healthified, but also satisfies a sweet craving. Yum Yum! Enjoy!
Hello! I am so excited to be posting today on Alex's blog.  My name is Becky and I blog at Love to be in the Kitchen. My blog focuses on quick, easy and budget friendly recipes. Here are some of my favorite recipes I have shared on my blog. I made up both recipes too!

And sometimes I share crafts too! Like these Mickey Mouse Invitations.

Today I am excited to share with you one of my favorite muffin recipes, Healthified Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins.  I love to wrap these individually and freeze them for a quick snack.

Not only are these muffins delicious they are healthier than most muffins. It has a lot less fat and calories than your average muffin.  I found this recipe on  They have a lot of healthified recipes where they make a recipe much healthier but still very tasty.  I made these for my dad because he loves anything with banana in it . He loved it and called me to thank me. My kids love these too! It has plenty of banana flavor but not too much.  It had just enough chocolate and the tops had a slight muffiny crunch to it. Mmm! 

Right before you put them in the oven, you sprinkle on a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. I only used 1/2 the mixture. It adds a nice touch to the top.

 I hope you try these, they are so amazing!

Healthified Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 2/3 cups Whole Wheat Flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (2 to 3 medium)
3 egg whites
¼ cup canola oil
¼ cup fat-free (skim) milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In large bowl, mix flour, 2/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, ½ teaspoon cinnamon and salt.

In medium bowl, beat bananas, egg whites, oil, milk and vanilla with fork until smooth.  Stir into flour mixture just until flour is moistened.  Gently stir in chocolate chips. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.

In small bowl, mix topping ingredients.  Sprinkle evenly over batter in cups.

Bake 18-22 minutes or until light golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Immediately remove muffins from pan to cooling rack.
