This recipe makes 12 Servings
Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup whipped butter (or trans-fat free soft tub spread)
  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup semisweet or dark chocolate chips
Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Coat a standard 12-cup muffin pan with oil spray.

In a large bowl, cream together the soft tub spread, mashed bananas, egg, egg white, milk, and vanilla extract.

In a medium bowl, combine the flours, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Sprinkle the flour mixture over the banana mixture and fold together until the ingredients are just combined. Be careful not to overmix — the batter will be slightly lumpy.

Gently fold in the chocolate chips.

Evenly divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups.

Bake the muffins on the middle oven rack for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before carefully removing the muffins from the pan. Cool completely.
