Healthy Chocolate Banana Muffins

Hi there!
     We're working on being healthier in my house, and here's a fantastic muffin recipe that we've come up with made with whole wheat flour and no added fat or sugar (except if you add a few chocolate chips!)- and they're delicious! These banana muffins are super tasty and you could put in any add-ins that you like- I went with a few chocolate chips and some chopped walnuts in these, but you could use butterscotch chips, coconut, other nuts, whatever you like!

Here's the batter, all mixed up.

Here are the muffins in the oven (I forgot a picture before I put them in!)

And here they are just out the oven.

Here's the recipe as annotated and modified out of our Fannie Farmer Cookbook, from which we got the base of the recipe.

Healthy Chocolate Banana Muffins
-4 bananas
-3 eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-2 cups white whole wheat flour
-1/3 cup cocoa
-1 teaspoon salt
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 cup chopped nuts
-1/2 cup chocolate chips (or whatever you like!)
Mash the bananas well, then mix in the eggs and vanilla. Add in the dry ingredients and stir well. Add the nuts and chips and stir a final time.
Fill greased muffin tins 2/3-3/4 of the way full, then bake for 15-18 minutes at 350 F.

All finished and so delicious! Give these a shot!
Savor it!
love, rue
