Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

One of my kids is a fairly picky eater.  He likes very few foods.  But luckily the foods he likes are healthy.  We just made an awesome smoothie together.
We just threw in the vitamix
chia seeds
an orange (peeled of course)
a banana
about 1/4 cup hemp seeds
Blend it all up and enjoy a cup of healthy deliciousness!

But my picky eater never knows what he wants for breakfast.  So on the weekend we try to create some healthy muffins to eat throughout the week.  Here are the muffins we just made, hot out of the toaster oven.
Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Can be made non-vegan as well.  Those substitutions are in parentheses.
1/3 cup white flour
1 cup sprouted grain whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup pure can sugar
1 flax or chia egg (2 egg whites are a good sub)
1 tsp vanilla
1 banana mashed
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.
In a bowl combine flours, baking powder, and salt.  In a large bowl mix together applesauce and sugar.  Stir in the flax or chia egg or egg substitute and vanilla. Mix well.  Slowly pour in flour mixture and the mashed banana.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Do not overmix.  Pour batter into muffin papers or disposable muffin tins.  Our batter made 10 muffins.  Bake 16-20 minutes.  Cool and enjoy.
Add some protein to these by spreading on some peanut butter.  Enjoy!
