Skinny Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

This is one seriously healthy, or “skinny”  batch of muffins. Made with white whole wheat flour, and only 1 Tablespoon of oil! These muffins have the right amount of sweetness. And.. they’re moist too!

No guilt… With these skinny double chocolate banana muffins!

You can feel good about these muffins:

  1. You get to use those 3 ripe bananas, sitting on the counter!
  2. These are made with all white whole wheat flour. Which makes the muffins tender.
  3. The entire batch has 1 Tablespoon of oil. That means, very low fat.
  4. Very easy to whip up.
  5. Mini chocolate chips are mixed in the batter, and tossed on top of muffins. 
  6. Great snack, for the kids!

Very tasty, fresh and warm from the oven… Yum! We like to heat them in the microwave, for 15 seconds.

Let’s bake some today!

Since the ingredients for these muffins are very basic, you can have them ready quick. I made them in 1 bowl. I mashed the bananas, in a large mixing bowl. Whisked in an egg, vanilla, oil, and milk. Whisk together, until fully combined. Add in some brown sugar, whisk again. Pour in the dry ingredients: white whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, pinch of salt, and cocoa powder.  Whisk everything together, making sure all the ingredients are incorporated well. Stir in, 2 Tablespoons of mini chocolate chips. Evenly, divide batter into 12 greased muffin tins. Toss the remaining 2 Tablespoons of mini chocolate chips, over each muffin, before baking.
