We love these banana muffins so much.  The original recipe came from my Grandma, over the years I’ve made a few changes to make them healthier- like reducing the fat by adding applesauce and replacing whole eggs with egg whites to reduce fat and cholesterol.  I promise you’ll never be able to tell the difference at all!
Then I don’t feel quite so guilty about adding in the chocolate chips… totally kidding!  The banana muffins are very good all on their own but those chocolate chips take them right over the top 🙂
