No, this isn’t a food blog and I’m far from competing in the fury filled kitchen on the next installment of Top Chef Canada, but these delicious little healthy sugar-free muffins have saved my carb-loving ass so many times in the midst of craving something decadent and sweet, without consuming a copious amount of sugar, which is a huge win for me.
My love of baking and cooking really started to diminish as I began to realize how horrible literally everything is for you these days, so I’ve really had to work on refining, testing and modifying a lot of the recipes that I love to make in order for them to agree with my sugar absorbing genetic makeup. Everyone I know always asks me for the recipe, so I thought I’d share it here…so, enjoy! Or just go to Tim Hortons and get yourself a fat-filled fruit explosion of happiness, whatever.

- 3 ripe bananas
- 1 egg (or two egg whites)
- 1 scoop of protein powder (vanilla to boost the flavour or you can opt for unflavoured)

1/2 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
