These tender banana muffins are so full of chocolate chips that folks won't realize they're made with wholesome oats and whole wheat flour. Kristine Sims of St Joseph, Michigan likes to bake a batch to enjoy in the morning...or anytime.

"I make these a couple of times a month for my boys. I use coconut oil in place of the butter and coconut sugar in place of the brown sugar. When I don't have applesauce, I'll add a couple tablespoons of plain Greek yogurt. The result is a light, delicious muffin that rises more than some whole wheat/oat muffins, thanks to the blend of white/wheat flour."

"Delicious! Didn't have applesauce, so I used ab extra tbsp of butter. Also cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup & Choc chips to 1/2 cup. It's a keeper!"

"Really yummy muffins! I liked the fact that it was very low fat. Since I did not have quite enough bananas for a double batch, I added some extra applesauce as well as 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of nutmeg for extra flavour. They were loved by all."
