No Sugar Added Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins
Chocolate chip banana muffins are kind of like a special treat for breakfast.
The first time that I made chocolate chip banana muffins for my kids. They really loved them. There is something about these muffins that calls for milk with them. My kids picked up on this and they were right.
People have been substituting bananas for oil in recipes for a while.
While you can sub in bananas, it is not recommended that you substitute it for the entire amount of oil needed. This is because a complete substitution can alter the texture. This is true of most anything you may be baking. However, you can substitute mashed bananas for one half of the indicated amount of oil in a recipe.

We know that most basic recipes for banana muffins call for some added sugar.
Because I prefer to go as low as possible on the sugar, I am limiting my sugar added to this recipe. This sugar comes naturally in the banana itself. Bananas are naturally nearly fat free and low in cholesterol. Bananas also contain a good supply of potassium, Vitamin B-6 and Vitamin C.
However, we will also be adding a sugar alternative to this recipe in addition to the banana.
