Skinny Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Earlier this year I made a commitment to myself that I would try to share healthy options on this blog. I started the year out by sharing these Skinny Pumpkin Energy Bites and these Skinny Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins.

You all seemed to love them!

So it was only a natural progression that I tried another flavor of muffins. Strawberry Chocolate Chip.

Using the same muffin base,  but adding some fresh chopped strawberries, I think you guys are going to love these!! I lowered the amount of whole wheat flour than the original version, my kids don’t like their muffins too “chewy.” The first batch had 1 cup all-purpose and 1 cup whole wheat, and they were delicious, but after a day my kids didn’t like the texture.

So I tried making them with more all purpose than whole wheat and they were kid approved! You decide what will work in your family. While my kids LOVE healthy food, when it comes to their baked goods I have taught them to love them SWEET. Extra SWEET.

This is a work in progress! I have replaced the extra sugar from this recipe by using honey and light agave nectar. The extra chocolate chips on top add just enough sweetness to make you think you are indulging…but your skinny jeans will still fit!

Unless of course you don’t wear skinny jeans. Yoga pants? Pajama pants? Whatever. So, with a handful of healthy recipes on the blog, I’m ready to indulge in a muffin with my morning coffee and not feel guilty! Now if only I can give up the sweet cream I use in my coffee…send help!!!
