Nikki's Banana Bread Muffins- Healthy

“I have been working on this recipe for about a year now. I had several bananas were extremely ripe and I needed a recipe to use them. I was on the search for something healthy but still tastes good. I took several recipes that I had and kind of put them together.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. I use my kitchenaid for this -mix melted butter with bananas.
  3. Add egg, vanilla, baking soda, salt, and Flax seed meal and mix well.
  4. add flour and the chocolate chips last.
  5. Pour into sprayed muffin tins, (I use a LARGE muffin tin and this recipe yields 6 large muffins).
  6. Bake 45 mins or until a tooth pick comes out clean (the 45 mins is for the LARGE muffins).
  7. Please note: I always add the flax seed meal and I try to remember the chocolate chips because it just gives them a little something extra (they tent to taste a little dry without the chocolate chips). I have omitted the sugar completely since I use VERY ripe bananas (if you want to add sugar it is 1 cup that I started with and then went to 1/2 cup and then reduced to none). I am slowly reducing the butter in this recipe, recently I reduced it to 2 tablespoons per batch. I always double if not triple this recipe!
