Healthy Banana Muffins

I love to bake (it is one of my favourite things to do- especially on a Sunday). I find it relaxing and I love waking up to baked goods on a Monday morning! I also love to make my sweet treats healthy. One of my favourite muffins, is the classic banana muffin. I love this muffin because it's super simple, and because it's the perfect use for over ripened bananas.

I experimented for a while and finally created a banana muffin recipe with great consistency, without all the added sugar! If you also love muffins, give them a try and let me know what you think! :)

Makes 12 muffins

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 2-3 tbsp. ground flaxseed or hemp hearts 1 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. baking soda 1/4 tsp. salt 2 tbsp. brown sugar 1/4 cup vegetable oil (can use apple sauce as a substitute) 2 eggs, beaten 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt 3 medium very ripe bananas, mashed 1 tsp. vanilla extract Dark chocolate chips (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 F. In a bowl mix mashed banana, vanilla extract, beaten eggs, yogurt, and vegetable oil. In a separate bowl mix together flour, flax, salt, baking powder, sugar, and baking soda. Add liquid mixture to dry and mix together well.

Line muffin tins with paper or an oil spray.

Add the optional dark chocolate chips (1/2 cup - highly recommended).

Bake for 22-24 minutes or until a golden brown colour!

Cut in half and spread a little peanut butter on top. Enjoy! :)
