Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

This is another recipe from MY Fitness Pal stash. I think I called these healthy because they have no added fat  – the applesauce and eggs are used instead – but still.  I guess it’s the linseeds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds that give illusion of ‘healthy’.  1/2 cup of sugar for 16 muffins making for 1/2 tsp per muffin is actually pretty low in sugar and perhaps that’s why I called them healthy.  Also using cacao nibs rather than chocolate chips cuts down on sugar and unhealthy fats.


  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 3/4 cup Sunflower Seeds
  • 1/2 white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Golden Linseed
  • 3 medium bananas
  • 1/2 cup Real Raw Cacao Nibs
