Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
2 c. whole wheat flour
Combine all the ingredients and spoon into muffin tins. fill about 3/4 full.
Bake for about 20-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
My batch yielded 12 muffins and then 4 mini-loaves. I calculated the total point value of recipe to be about 38. I think the mini-loaves are equivalent to about 2 muffins so each muffin would about 2 points and the mini-loaves about 4 points each. These turned out really good. My kids loved them for breakfast (and so did I, I already ate 2 1/2 muffins) If you don't add the chocolate chips I would add 1/4 more of brown sugar and a little more cinnamon. Feel free to add whatever you want: coconut, walnuts, pecans, almonds, white chocoalte chips, raisens, etc.
One other great thing about these, is that they freeze really well! So you don't have to eat it all in one day. Eat a few and throw the rest in the freezer. Next time I am going to make a bunch of mini-muffins for a nice little snack for the kids in the afternoon.
