Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

We are big muffin fans at our house and I'm always looking for ways to sneak in healthy ingredients. While these Banana Muffins are our all-time favorite, I was so excited to find a banana muffin recipe that still tasted great without all the sugar.
These muffins bake perfectly, are so soft, fluffy and you'll never believe they don't have any added sugar. I love the nutty taste the wheat flour gives them and of course you can't go wrong with some chocolate chips. These are definitely going to be a new staple at our house!
