Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe

In case you’re wondering how these healthy banana chocolate chip muffins are lightened up, let’s talk ingredients.

  • First off, these healthy banana muffins are made with honey instead of processed sugar. Not only does this cut down on calories but natural honey makes the muffins nice and moist.
  • Second, these banana muffins are made with whole wheat flour instead of white flour, which adds a ton of nutrients and fiber and helps keep you fuller longer throughout your day.
  • Lastly, traditional oil and butter is replaced with healthy olive oil, nonfat greek yogurt, and a splash of almond milk. These ingredients help keep the muffins moist and the nonfat greek yogurt adds protein to help give you energy, minus unnecessary sugar.

Add in bananas, a tablespoon of vanilla, and a sprinkle of chocolate chips, and these banana muffins are seriously THE best healthy banana chocolate chip muffins you’ll ever eat.
