Skinny Banana Fudge Muffins

At just around 100 calories each, these are the perfect item for mornings on-the-go!  Bonus: they don't taste like they're "healthified" at all. Since I'm a chocoholic, they are a MUST in my book.


3 large, extra ripe bananas

1/3 cup Truvia baking blend, or 2/3 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1/3 cup applesauce

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 cup mini chocoate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a 12-cup muffin tin with liners.
  2. Smash bananas in large mixing bowl. Add Truvia/sugar, egg, applesauce, and vanilla. Sift in flours, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix together until fully combined, but don't overmix. Set aside about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the chocolate chips and add the rest to the batter. MIx in and divide batter between the cups. Sprinkle remaining chips on top.
  3. Bake for about 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out with moist crumbs attached. Don't overbake. Let cool on rack for a couple of minutes and then remove muffins from pan to cool until just warm. Eat, or cool completely and store in an airtight container.
