Found several versions of this through web sites and a couple of friends personal recipes. I went with this one and wanted to pass it along.

Diabetic Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

– 1 cup bananas, mashed (about 2 1/2 medium bananas)
– 1 large egg
– 1/2 cup applesauce
– 1/4 cup splenda blend
– 1 cup whole wheat flour

– 1 cup regular flour
– 1/4 cup milk
– 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
– 2 tsp baking powder
– 3 tbsp semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

1.   Mix all ingredients in large bowl.

2.   Fill 16 muffin tins or papers about halfway. (I use an ice cream scoop to spoon it because the batter will be thick.)

3.   Bake 350 degrees for 20 mins.
