Nothing says "good morning" quite like a delicious chocolate chip muffin. Except maybe a delicious chocolate chip muffin that also adds the delicious flavor of bananas and peanut butter to the mix, that is.
These muffins are made with a little bit of whole wheat flour and stevia to lighten them up, but maintain the moist deliciousness you expect from muffins. This Examiner will definitely be making them again, probably as soon as she eats the last one.
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup sugar*
- 1/2 cup stevia
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup bananas, mashed (about 2 medium bananas)
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter (those pictured used natural peanut butter)
- 3 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
*subbing out all of the sugar for stevia is not recommended, as this impacts the moistness and texture of the muffins.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large mixing bowl, combine both types of flour, both types of sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Mash up your bananas, if you have not already done so. Add the bananas to the dry ingredients, along with the milk, peanut butter, vegetable oil, and egg.
Stir just until combined, then fold in the chocolate chips.
Line a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin liners. Spoon batter (which will be relatively thick)into the cups, dividing evenly between them. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let them cool if you can stand it, and then enjoy!
