Impossibly Healthy Chocolate Chip Muffies

"Impossible, you say. Low-fat cookies that don't taste like poop? (Low-sugar if you use Splenda, but I'm a naturalist. Still, the sugar is reduced quite a bit!) They're soft and chewy on the inside, but surprisingly crispy on the outside. You'll love the hint of banana flavor. Oh, and the title? At Panera Bread, they have muffies, which apparently is what you get when you cut the top off of the muffin. I think these cookies look and taste more like muffies."

Ready In:
36 cookies




  • Mix flours and baking soda.
  • In a larger, separate bowl, cream the remaining ingredients, leaving the oats for last. Freeze the remaining banana for a smoothie!
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Farenheit.
  • Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir until just moistened.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Grease two cookie sheets and drop scoops of dough on the sheets; I end up with 18 cookies per sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

  1. These were great when they were warm, almost like muffins. They were also very healthy. Once they cool down they are not quite as good, so gobble them up when hot!
  2. Made half a recipe & used the mini chips (a tip from one of the others who reviewed the recipe) & then, served 'em up with a room temperature honey butter, which I thought was great, especially before they'd cooled down completely but which my other half opted not to use! Did enjoy these treats, though! [Made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC recipe tag]
  3. I told the kids that these were called muffies because they were a cross between a cookie and a muffin. We really enjoyed them hot; not quite as much when they were cold though they were fine. I used all white wheat flour, regular white sugar, splenda brown (at half strength), and a regular egg. I think that using mini chocolate chips would be even better because it would distribute the chocolate around the muffie more. A good healthy snack. Thanks.
  4. these were pretty and good and pretty darn healthy too! i made half with walnuts and half with ch chips.. they were a little too cake textured for me but if you like that type of cookie their it. you dont want to overbake these or they're too dry mine were done between 8 and 9 min.. i cut down on the sugar a bit.. my banana was really black. and they were plenty sweet. esp the ch chip ones. these would be good with a little spice like cinnamon or ginger too.. esp w/o chocolate. thanks
