Banana-chocolate chip muffins

Recipe from Tasty Kitchen

I am always searching for healthy recipes that I can trick the kids into eating. This is one of those deceptive recipes. They are so tasty and I feel good about giving them to the kids for breakfast or a snack. Ryan is actually the one who sneaks a frozen one out for breakfast everyday. But that's okay, I want him to eat healthy too...

Yield 12 muffins

•½ cup Unsalted Butter, At Room Temperature
•½ cup Granulated Sugar
•¼ cup Brown Sugar, Packed
•2 whole Eggs
•1 teaspoon Vanilla
•1 cup Whole Wheat Flour (I LOVE King Arthur's white whole wheat flour)
•1 cup All-purpose Flour
•1 teaspoon Baking Soda
•1 teaspoon Salt
•3 Tablespoons Ground Flax Seed (optional)
•4 whole Ripe Bananas, Mashed
•½ cups Mini Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

Cream butter with sugars until light and fluffy. Then add eggs, one at a time until fully incorporated – mixture will look a little lumpy. Stir in vanilla.

In another bowl, combine flours, baking soda, salt, and flaxseed.

Add dry ingredients along with mashed bananas to butter/sugar/egg mixture. Stir until JUST combined, then fold in chocolate chips.

Using a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop, divide evenly into a 12-count muffin tin lined with paper liners.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
