banana Choc Chip Muffins

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Recipe from Meal Makeover Moms
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ or ground flaxseed
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup packed brown sugar (I used regular sugar because I was out of brown sugar)
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup 1% lowfat milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
shredded coconut, optional
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly oil or coat 12 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray
and set aside.
2. Whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, wheat germ, baking powder, and
salt in a large bowl.
3. Combine the bananas, eggs, sugar, oil, milk, and vanilla in a medium bowl and stir until
well blended. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until just
moistened. Stir in the chocolate chips.
4. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups. Top with each muffin with shredded coconut if using.  Bake about 20 minutes, or until the   muffins are light golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
5. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and cool for 5 minutes. Remove the muffins and cool an
additional 5 minutes before serving. To make 24 mini muffins, bake about 14 minutes.
