Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe


I love muffins, but hate how some muffin recipes can be so unhealthy. As I continue to play around with recipes, I used less sugar and butter than this recipe called for and am happy to report that I did not taste the difference. In addition, half of the flour was replaced with ground flaxseed meal.

Ground flaxseed meal has so many great health benefits. The first being it is high in fiber. Fiber helps us feel full longer and helps lower cholesterol. The second benefit is it is high in omega 3 fatty acids. Some of the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids are it assists with lowering blood pressure, in preventing heart disease, and easing joint pain. It is also low in carbohydrates, beneficial to those who typically follow a low carb diet. You can use flaxseed meal in many different baked goods. Even though I replaced half of the flour with flaxseed meal, typically, you only want to replace 25% of the flour with flaxseed.
