Whole Wheat Banana Chocolate Muffins
Not too sweet, with only 1 tsp of sugar and 175 calories per muffin, these have a bit of crunch and a lively but pleasing amount of spice. They can make an appearance at meals and snacks throughout the day. The spices are optional, as is the chocolate extract, but both are useful additions when working with less sugar.
