  • Step 2

    Beat sugar, butter, flax seed, vanilla, and eggs together in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.

  • Step 3

    Sift flour, salt, and baking soda together in a separate bowl. Mix creamed sugar mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, into the flour mixture until fully incorporated and batter is stiff. Beat bananas into batter with an electric mixer on low. Fold chocolate chips and walnuts into batter; spoon into the prepared muffin cups, filling each cup 3/4 full.

  • Step 4

    Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool in the tins for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

  • Cook's Notes:

    I use half whole wheat flour/half white, part agave or honey to increase the ‘good for you’ factor, and semi-sweet mini-chips to ensure that each bite has chocolate in it.

    Also good zapped for 10 seconds and promptly served with vanilla ice cream!
