Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Mornings are a bit crazy and we can admit to eating on the go more often than we’d like.  Swinging through the coffee shop drive-thru, sneaking a donut from the break room or skipping breakfast all together is all too common, which is why we are sharing this Chocolate Chip Banana Muffin recipe. These muffins can easily be made ahead of time and make the perfect breakfast on the go. Not only are they incredibly delicious, but they have no added sugar or eggs, making them a healthier alternative to the muffins you typically find at the coffee shop.

Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, sift together flours, baking soda and salt. Add banana mixture to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Make sure batter has cooled, then stir in half of the chocolate chips. Scoop batter into muffin tins, sprinkle additional chocolate chips on top of each muffin.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick poked into the center comes out clean.345
