Lower Fat Banana Nut Chip Muffins

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by ladypit

Based on Recipe Nut's Banana Nut Chip Muffins I am posting the healthier changes I made to try and make it more lunchbox friendly. This is what I used because of what I had. I'd like to try with splenda and egg whites. I have very small old muffin tins, you may not get as many muffins as I did.

I was first a bit concerned as my mixture was so wet...much more like a cake mix than a muffin, but all was well. These produced a light and moist muffin, I got 16 good sized muffins from the mix. I found they rose so much more evenly when baked in patty cases. I loved the addition of pecan nuts....a wonderful treat for the kids lunchboxes. Thanks for sharing...oh and they are great served right from the oven as a quick dessert. Upgraded to 5 stars because between me and the 2 kids they had all been polished off by dinner time :) reviewed for Spring 2007 Pick A Chef
