Whole Wheat Banana Chip Muffins

These are my daughter's absolute favorite muffins. I make them about once every 2-3 weeks and freeze them for her.

Whole Wheat Banana Chip Muffins

  • 1 C whole wheat flour
  • 1 C white flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ C white sugar
  • ¼ C canola oil
  • ¾ C skim milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 bananas, mashed (approx 1 C)
  • ¾ C chocolate chips

  1. Combine flours, baking powder, salt in large bowl.
  2. In small bowl, mix together, sugar, milk, egg, oil, banana.
  3. Set oven for 375°; grease muffin pan.
  4. Mix together dry and wet ingredients.
  5. Fold in chocolate chips.
  6. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full (about ¼ cup)
  7. Place pan in oven; raise temperature to 400°. (Here's why)
  8. Bake 20 minutes.
  9. Turn out of pan almost immediately; do not cool upside down (they squash)

Makes 12 muffins.
I've done these with a few minor variations all with good success. Sometimes I've added or substituted ¼ cup brown sugar with the white sugar; sometimes I add ½ cup applesauce; I find if I leave out the oil and just use applesauce they come out too dense. These make good tall muffins.
