lighter banana bread muffins // linden

I seem to always have some old bananas in my fruit bowl so I needed a good go to recipe for banana bread/ muffins. I always add chocolate chips to my batter because the kids and I love them with gooey chocolate. I guess it kind of negates the fact that these are "lighter" if I add a bunch of chocolate to them but I just can't help myself! This is a great grab and go breakfast if you stick some in the freezer!
 
Here is what you will need:
 
3/4 Cup all purpose flour
3/4 Cup whole wheat flour
1/4 Cup flaxseed meal
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Cup mashed ripe bananas
1/2 Cup choc. chips (optional)
3/4 Cup sugar
1/2 Cup vanilla yogurt (I use greek)
1/4 Cup canola oil
 
 
Pre heat oven to 325 . Wisk flours, flax, baking powder, soda and salt together in a bowl. In a separate bowl mash your bananas and add the yogurt, oil and sugar. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Fold in the choc chips. Spray your bread pans or muffin tins. Fill about 3/4 full in whatever pan or tin you choose to use. For bread bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. For muffins bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
 
Enjoy!! -Linden
