Chocolate, Banana and chips muffins!

I managed to get these muffins in the oven before our power went out today!  Whew! I am a happy camper right now.

I am always looking for a quick breakfast bread.  I seldom eat cereal or eggs so today I played around with my original banana bread recipe and here's what I came up with.  Light in taste and texture with less fat and sugar this recipe will be nice change for my easy and healthier on the go breakfast.

 I did this by cutting out out some of  the sugar and butter and adding unsweetened applesauce.   I'll freeze some too for later use.  I like to store lots of easy breads, scones and muffins in my freezer.  Coffee, tea or your favorite juice will make it perfect! and I find them to be filling. If you are cutting calories eliminate the white or chocolate chips. Enjoy!
