Chocolate Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

This isn't the greatest picture, but these muffins are #1 with my kids. This is my healthier version of a recipe I found online that calls for white flour, more sugar, oil, egg, and a cup of chocolate chips. I make these quite often.

Kari's Chocolate Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Makes 12 muffins

1 c. white whole wheat flour
1/2 c. unbleached flour
3/4 c. sugar (I usually use turbinado)
1/4 c. cocoa
2 Tbsp wheatgerm
2 Tbsp flax meal
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/3 cup mashed very ripe bananas
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce (4-ounce individual container)
1 egg substitute
1/2 to 3/4 c. chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Spray nonstick (regular sized) muffin cups with cooking spray.

In mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. In small bowl, combine bananas, applesauce, and egg substitute. Add banana mixture to dry mixture and stir until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips. Divide batter equally among muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes.
