Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins


I love this recipe. It meets my need for an afternoon chocolaty snack but doesn’t leave me feeling guilty when I inevitably eat more than I mean to … which happens every. single. time. And, you can feel good about eating a bunch as these are 100% whole wheat and have a small amount of sugar considering the number of muffins the recipe makes. Plus, there is a banana in them, so surely you can count that as fruit for the day.

Enough with my justifying. Make these muffins, feed your family, and enjoy with a cup of hot tea or sippy cup of milk. Take your pick.
