Eggology Egg White Recipe of the Day: Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Normally I pick recipes based on factors like the time of year (holiday season), type of weather or something similar to that. Today I picked this recipe because it just sounds good! This really needs no fancy introduction so ... without further ado, here it is!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 medium)
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with baking paper cups.

In large bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. Make well in center of flour mixture.

In another bowl, beat Eggology egg whites until foamy. Stir buttermilk, applesauce and vanilla into egg whites. Add bananas to egg-white mixture until well-combined. Add banana mixture into flour mixture until just moistened. Fold in nuts and chocolate chips.

Spoon batter into lined muffin tins, filling each 3/4 full. Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool in muffin cups about five minutes, then remove and cool on a wire rack.
