My workouts are still going strong! You may remember from instagram I made these muffins several months ago! It took so much willpower to hold off on sharing this recipe. It also took me several tries to get this recipe perfect.

I didn’t want a dense, dry, low fat muffins. I wanted a muffin that was lower in calories and fat, but still sweet and delicious!

My family LOVES muffins, and they of course expect sugary, delicious muffins from my kitchen. Can you believe no one complained when these healthier muffins were brought out for breakfast? They are so full of flavor and the texture is perfect.

The extra chocolate chips are just the sweetness these muffins need, and the bananas give great texture and moisture to these muffins! I know I’ve said it before, but baked goods with my morning coffee are such a treat. I’m not one to enjoy eggs or oatmeal, I’ve tried. So instead, I’ll enjoy these no guilt muffins with my coffee! Who’s with me?

  1. Soooooooo is it still healthy if I eat all the mini muffins in one sitting??

    They are so tiny….I bet I’d be fine. 😉

  2. These look amazing Amy. I am going to try them with maple syrup. My munchkin is sugar sensitive (honey too). Agave and brown rice syrup or maple syrup would be awesome. Wish me luck.

  3. Can I get a calorie count for a regular size muffin? They are in the oven right now, they smell great! 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Yum! I bet these are delicious. I love that the only sweeteners are honey and agave. Can’t wait to give them a try!

  5. I love a good chocolate chip muffin in the morning and really any time of day. It is a must to have a few healthy versions in your back pocket when you are trying to lighten thing up. I cannot wait to try this recipe.

  6. Aimee…I love your lightened up version of one of my favorite muffins….perfectly studded with those chocolate chips! I love baked goods for breakfast, too. And these would be a great way to start my day!

  7. I am a huge fan of chocolate in bread! I also love the idea of Greek yogurt in the mix to keep things moist!

  8. You know how I feel about muffins and bananas…love that these are healthy!!! They sound awesome!

  9. Those mini muffins are so cute! These muffins look amazing, with their domed tops and chocolate chips. I’ve been eating bananas like they are going out of style and these like the perfect way to eat them!

  10. I like no-guilt muffins so much more, Aimee! They taste better to me when they’re full of Greek yogurt AND bananas because they’re so nice and moist without being oily or greasy. These look fantastic. 🙂

  11. I love muffins as a quick “I-woke-up-late-and-don’t-have-time-to-eat-breakfast” (not that I’m speaking from experience or anything” or an on-the-go snack! These look fantastic. Bananas and chocolate chips is one of the classic combinations that you can never go wrong with, and I love the addition of Greek yogurt! Makes baked goods so tender and moist! Pinned! 🙂

  12. I wish I knew what agave nectar was, so I could try these! I’d love to trick the kids with something healthier. I’d have them at chocolate chips.

    1. Agave nectar is often used as a vegan replacement for honey. It is simply a sweetener, you can easily substitute it with an equal amount of honey or maple syrup.
