Since the start of the new year, David and I have been making a serious effort to be healthier. We indulged a little bit too much during the holidays, so now we are attempting to make up for that by getting active, drinking green juice, cutting out processed sugar, and making all of our meals at home.
We both love sweet treats so I still want to incorporate those into our diet, but make them a bit healthier. Recently I came across a recipe online from Recipe Girl
for honey sweetened low fat banana chocolate chip muffins and I knew I
had to try them out.
The recipe uses ingredients like applesauce,
yogurt, whole wheat flour, and oat flour to lighten up the muffins and make
them low fat. Each muffin only has 164 calories and 2.2g of fat, so I
don't feel guilty after enjoying one of them.
I've already made these twice, and put some of my latest batch in the
freezer to pull out and enjoy for a quick breakfast or snack. I love
that the recipe uses honey because since we are expanding our apiary this year, hopefully we can use our own honey soon!
If you are looking for a healthier muffin that doesn't taste healthy and is still sweet and delicious, check out the recipe here.
