Skinny Honey-Sweetened Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins *Gluten-Free!*

Skinny Honey-Sweetened Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins *Gluten-Free!*

These delightful melt-in-your mouth muffins come healthier than most! With honey used instead of sugar and no butter, I just could not resist.  I had two for breakfast right after I made them, and they filled me right up.  The chocolate was still warm and with each bite it melted into the rest of the muffin as I devoured those delectable breakfast treats.  The yogurt and apple sauce keeps the muffins moist,  and adds the perfect amount of “I don’t taste low-fat but I am” amount!! These are for sure a must try!!


1 1/4 cup mashed ripe bananas
2/3 cup honey
2 Tbs nonfat greek yogurt
2 Tbs cinnamon apple sauce
2 large egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup gluten-free flour (I used brown rice flour)
3/4 cup gluten-free oat flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill whole grain oat flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Note: You can make your own oat flour by putting regular gluten-free oats in a blender or food processor and blending until it becomes fine!

3. Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar together in a bowl.
4. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients: melted Earth Balance Butter (you may have to heat this butter in the microwave to melt it), almond milk (you may have to mix the butter and almond milk together and heat them in the microwave to make sure the butter does not clump up), then add the two eggs and honey and whisk well.
