Healthy-ish Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

It's no secret January is a month known for being healthy and getting fit not baking. What if I said you could bake something equally delicious and healthy? Sign me up, right?!

HEALTHY-ISH BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS

The holidays flew by and sadly I didn't do any baking. It shouldn't come as a surprise, I have a weakness for baked goods, pastries and ice cream. I also have a thing for kitchen gadgets and tools. So when Trudeau asked if they could send me some baking tools I jumped at the chance.

Set of 3 Round Chocolate Molds [c/o]/ LARGE CUPCAKE SPATULA [c/o]/ Set of 5 Measuring Cups [c/o]
Every cook can use a extra set of measuring cups or spatula. I probably own 5+ spatulas varying in shape and size.

The last Tahoe storm provided the perfect opportunity and reason to do a little baking with my new Trudeau goodies. No candies yet, but I did make some tasty muffins!

I'll throw it out there this fit gal follows the 80/20 rule. When Sunday rolls around I don't mind enjoying a treat or two. These Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins hit the spot. Enjoy them along or with a cup of coffee.

Happy baking!
