By the end of the week, any bananas left in the fruit bowl are past their prime—just right for these moist bran muffins. Add a handful of dark chocolate chips to entice children to enjoy a fiber-rich treat.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I changed this recipe up a bit, in order to use up some canned pumpkin in my fridge. I doubled the recipe using three eggs, 2 cups of pumpkin, 1/3 cup oil, 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, 1/2 chopped dates and about 1/4 cup crushed flax...

My Go-To Recipe

I LOVE these muffins. They're an easy, delicious, and healthy option for breakfast (or to cure my sweet tooth). I look forward to using some of the suggestions to make it even healthier.

Best banana muffins yet

reducesyet reduces oil by half and replaced with applesauce. Followed other reviews and reduced sugar to half a cup. Added peanut butter chips along with chocolate chips. These are the best muffins yet

So Easy and Filling

I've just made my first batch of these muffins. I made a couple small changes to make them more healthy: I substituted organic unsweetened apple sauce for oil (1/4c), I then cut the brown sugar down to 2/4 brown sugar and then instead of chocolate chip or almonds I chopped up a third banana all thin and put them on the tops of the muffins. I also used Quaker's Wheat Bran because that was all I could find at CO-OP. They are fantastic and will definitely be added to my breakfast rotation! To freeze I wrapped each one individually in cling-wrap and then put them in zip-lock bags. Enjoy this fantastic recipe!

Very quick
