I have been making the same banana chocolate chip muffin recipe for years but this time I decided to make some substitutions.
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
1 1/3 cups flour (I use whole wheat)
1/2 cup oatmeal
3/4 cups sugar (I used honey this time)
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups mashed banana (about 3-4)
1/2 melted butter or oil (I used applesauce this time)
1/2 to 1 cup chocolate chips (I used the mini ones), or raisins, dried cranberries, nuts, or a combination
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Pour over dry ingredients and stir until just moistened. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill muffin tins. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees F.

These did not stick to the paper even though they at are fat free. I think I'll be make these substitutions again.
This is one of the best mixers I have. It has a wooden handle with a metal top. It is perfect for cutting butter or lard into flour for pastry, great for pancakes, and just about anything you're baking. My Nana gave it to me, I think she got it at the Farmer's Market in Halifax.
