Guilt-Free Chocolate Chip Banana Breakfast Muffins

I've been on a big health kick lately to try and eat cleaner and shed some of the extra pounds I've been struggling with for a while now. Last week, when I started my new internship though, I was struggling to find something for breakfast that was easy to grab and go, but also healthy and tasty. I have to leave my house by 6:15 in the morning everyday to get to work on time early, so I have no time for fuss. 

After searching around on Pinterest for a recipe, I came across one for healthy banana chocolate chip muffins and I knew I had struck gold. I whipped up a batch on Sunday and have been taking one to-go every morning and eating it during my commute to work! 

I've included the recipe below: 

Makes: 12


  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 bananas
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk 
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

What Makes them healthy? 
Whole wheat instead of white flour
Honey instead of sugar
Greek Yogurt instead of butter 
Almond milk instead of heavy dairy

1.  Preheat your oven to 350ºF and line a muffin tin with baking cups.

2. Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl.

3. In a separate bowl, mash bananas with a fork and then mix in the rest of wet ingredients. (I used the bowl from my KitchenAid Mixer to help with the next step.)

4. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients and whisk together until smooth and combined completely. (Seriously the KitchenAid mixer is so helpful for this! Cuts down the mixing time and effort in half.)

5. Fold in the chocolate chips.

6. Divide muffins evenly into the pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until you can stick a fork in without any batter stuck to it.

7. Let cool and enjoy!

How delicious do they look? I'm not exaggerating when I say they are amazing!
