Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins (no added sugar)

When you think muffins; you instantly think calories right? However, if you're a big muffin lover like me, you'll find a way to make those delicious balls of goodness just that little bit healthier. Home-baking is a great way to do this, you have control of what goes into your mix and of course total power over the flavour. This morning I baked a lovely batch of healthy Banana chocolate chip muffins for breakfast. They are under 250 calories and have no added sugar which will make your teeth very happy. I can safely say that these are my favourite muffins to date; they are moist and make a delicious breakfast or snack.

What you need:
  • 1 and half cups wholemeal flour
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • half cup honey
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 and quarter teaspoon baking powder 
  • half teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 and half teaspoons ground cinnamon 
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • half cup plain greek yoghurt

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees.
  2. Line 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake cases/liners, spray inside with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Combine flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon and baking powder in a bowl and set aside.
  4. Grab another bowl then mix the mashed bananas, egg whites, vanilla extract and oil then mix with electric mixer until smooth. Add yoghurt then beat again.
  5. Gently fold in the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon) until moulded together. Add in chocolate chips and fold in.
  6. Divide butter into muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes. 

Have a good week!
