1/2 Photos of Healthier Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins
From a Taste of Home booklet and submitted by L. Heyn. I find the addition of whole wheat flour gives these muffins a deeper taste. My kids enjoy these anytime and I love that they are a bit healthier overall. I do not make them with pecans but the original recipe included them so I'm making them optional.
