Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

In Oak Creek, Wisconsin, Lauren Heyn bakes up these yummy treats. Lots of banana flavor and plenty of chocolate chips "disguise" the whole wheat taste in these moist muffins. They're perfect for breakfast or an anytime snack.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat bran
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In another bowl, combine the eggs, milk, bananas, applesauce and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.

"Moist and delicious. I did not have any wheat bran available so I substituted quick cooking oatmeal. Generous recipe, I was able to get 18 regular size muffins from the batch."
