We are a big muffin family. I don’t exaggerate; my kids eat 3 to 4 muffins apiece, even my one year old! I hate putting time into it, though. Honestly, who wants to rush even more in the mornings, or worse, have to wake up sooner just to have a great breakfast? No Ma’am, not me! So instead of doing the quick but not-very-healthy-because-of-all-the-additives boxed muffin mixes, I try to find quick, healthier versions that are still delicious. Well, here’s one of my favorites!
Banana Apple Muffins
1 ¼ tsp. Salt
1 1/2 tsp. Ground cinnamon
½ to 1 cup Semisweet chocolate chips
½ cup Walnuts, chopped
1-2 Ripe bananas, mashed
¾ cup Brown sugar, packed
½ cup Applesauce
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1 cup All-purpose flour
2 tsp. Baking powder
½ tsp. Baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease muffin pan, or place liners into spots.
In bowl, mix egg, banana, brown sugar, applesauce and vanilla.
In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
Slowly stir flour mixture into banana mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Pour batter into muffin cups.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until light brown and fluffy.
