Recipe | skinny banana chocolate chip muffins

As someone who tries to eat mostly healthy, its important to have small indulgences as well. In my life, I am all about balance! These little muffins are a lightened up version of traditional banana chocolate chip muffins and I think they taste even better! They’re also significant other approved and make a great on-the-go, filling breakfast.

Using honey in place of sugar in these muffins keeps them moist and cuts the sugar content down. Instead of butter, I used vanilla Greek yogurt. The yogurt also adds in a boost of protein.

After cooling, you can freeze the muffins to enjoy later, or if you’re like me and can’t wait, slather some peanut butter on top and enjoy them warm.
