Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Banana Chocolate Chip Whole Grain Muffins

These wholesome muffins are made with whole wheat flour, are low in sugar and are delicious.

Don't have whole wheat flour? Use all-purpose flour instead.

Prefer a cake? Pour the batter into a loaf pan and bake in a 375℉ oven for about 45 minutes.

Wondering what to do with overripe bananas? Peel, store in plastic bags and freeze. When baking, slightly thaw by removing bananas from the freezer for a few minutes, then slice and add to the batter.
