Chocolate Banana Nut Muffins
- 1 ½ C. all-purpose flour
- ½ C. whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1 C. chocolate chips
- ½ C. pecans or walnuts coarsely chopped
- 1 large egg
- ¾ C. packed light brown sugar
- 1 1/3 C. ripe bananas mashed
- 1/3 C. apple sauce
- 6 tbs vegetable oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven 375F
Butter muffin tin or spray with bakers choice spray.
Whisk together first seven ingredients in medium bowl.
In a separate medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients.
Gently fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Do not over mix. There should even appear to be a couple of dry spots in batter.
Fill muffin tins 2/3s full.
Bake 18-20 minutes.
They are done when a toothpick inserted in middle of muffin comes out dry. If the toothpick passes through a chocolate chip, it will appear wet, but that’s fine.
Cool a couple minutes in pan before removing to cooling rack.
