Choconananut Muffins

This is a recipe I created a few years ago, and they are some of our favorite muffins! They’re only about 180 calories each, and lots of fiber and protein. Perfect for breakfast on days when we’re driving carpool, or for packing in lunches. I sometimes make a double batch and freeze half so we can enjoy them for a while.

Choconananut Muffins

You’ll need:
1 cup white flour
2 cups wheat flour
1.5 cups old fashioned oats
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2(+) tablespoons cocoa powder
4 small ripe bananas
1 cup chopped walnuts
2/3 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup brown sugar
1.5 cup plain lowfat yogurt
2 eggs
1(+) tsp vanilla

Combine dry ingredients and bananas and stir until mostly blended. Add everything else and mix well. Bake at 400* for 15 minutes. Makes about 28 ice cream scoop sized muffins.
