No Sugar Added Banana Flax Chocolate Chip Muffins

Kids come home hungry! However, we want them to be alert for their homework, healthy for their bodies, and able to rest when it’s time for bed. So what snack do you choose?

These healthy muffins (or mini muffins if you wanted to use that pan) are healthy, filling, brain power packed snacks without all the added unnecessary
sugar.

1 cup oat flour (GF)
1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder
1/4 cup sugar or equivalent sweetener of choice
1/4 cup Stevia in the Raw or equivalent sweetener of choice

1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
2 large, ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 milk
1 cup sugar-free chocolate chips

• Preheat oven to 325F and line a 12-muffin tin with paper liners.
• In a large bowl, whisk together flax meal, oat flour, protein powder, sweeteners, baking powder, baking soda, salt and xanthan gum.
• Add bananas, eggs, melted butter and milk and stir vigorously until well-combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
