definitely a guilt-free muffin! I used blueberries instead of the chocolate chips and a chunky cinnamon applesauce. They turned out wonderful (great for this fruit-lover!) I'll have to eat them quick though, they are so moist I'm afraid they'll mold!

Oh my!! Very yummy! My family loves these - my kids who used to eat all the bananas before they could become overripe for baking, now intentionally let a few over-ripen and then beg me to make these muffins. They gobble them up. It's now a favorite treat in our home and I feel good because they are eating something healthy! Thanks!

This recipe is great! I decided to omit the chocolate chips and add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. They turned out perfectly. Thanks for posting!

These were great! I added about 1/4 cup of cocoa (though it probably didn't need it), and had to use berry applesauce as I didn't have any plain....and these were still fantastic! Ate one straight out of the oven with some fat free cream cheese. YUMMY!

Pretty good--I didn't use muffin papers and sprayed my non-stick tin but they were still kind of sticky. Will make again!

HOLY COW! These are fantastic! I just made these and my whole house smells like a bakery. I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose and raisins instead of chocolate chips. I am constantly trying to find ways to "sneak in" extra nutrition for my 2 and 3 year old kids. I followed the recipe exactly for the rest and I am amazed how moist and flavorful they are. I think I may add some chopped nuts the next time, just to try it. These will be a staple in my house. Anyone still using commercial muffin mixes should know that making them from scratch is way, way better, better for you, and not at all difficult. I can't thank you enough for sharing this recipe!

WOWZER!!!! These are sooo good! I used half cup of reg. flour and half cup of whole wheat. I didn't have any reg. apple sauce on hand so I used 1/3c. of Motts healthy harvest peach medly (all natural/no added sugar) and I don't think it effected the taste at all. I also cut the sugar in half...the choco. chips make it sweet enough for me to cut back on the sugar. And, based on some of the reviews i opted not to use liners, i just sprayed my pan real good with cooking spray and they came out with no problem at all. These are simply amazing and I will definitely be making them again and experimenting with add-ins!

Man are these GOOD! I also used Splenda for the sugar and whole wheat flour and they were awesome! I cant believe Im saying this but next time Im going to cut the amount of chocolate chips in half...it just doesnt need as much to taste great. (Unless you just want to be sinful...then add away!) They are so moist and delicious warmed in the microwave the next day....and with coffee!!
