Healthier Banana Nut and Chocolate Chip MuffinsPosted: October 22, 2008
As I continue my search for healthier muffins, I found the recipe section on Spark People. Spark recipes are great because they are tried and true recipes from member and give all the nutritional information. I found this banana nut muffin recipe to be lower in carbs than any of the others I had seen. I also used splenda instead of reg. sugar, more ww flour than white and added oats for more fiber. I also used mini chocolate chips to cut down on the calorie count! They came out perfect! I was very happy with the results and they keep me filled up all morning long! And by the looks of the picture, I must have been bored!! LOL!
