CHOCOLATE BANANA MUFFINS




CHOCOLATE BANANA MUFFINS

Rich chocolate muffins with a hint of banana flavor.  Breakfast could not come soon enough when I made these.  They are great at room temperature. Chocolate chips can be omitted if desired.  However, they add another dimension of extra chocolatey goodness if that’s what you like.  Choczero chocolate chips are now available and the good news is that they are made without sugar alcohols.  These are made with real banana, so they are a little higher in carbs, but good carbs.  These are great for pre-maintenance, maintenance levels and for children.  Yummy!  My daughter-in-law uses my banana bread recipe also made with real banana and she lost 20 lbs recently.  It depends on the individual and how carb-sensitive they are.  She is not diabetic.
