Well, this is one amazing recipe for banana muffins.
You can use applesauce instead of butter or oil in order to cut down on sugar.
Also, you can use oat flour, because it has less calories, it is gluten-free and has more protein and fiber than the all-purpose flour. If you make the muffins in a normal tin, they should contain about 100 calories (for one muffin), and those made in a jumbo tin are about 200 calories. Add around 37 calories for every 1/3 cup of chocolate chips.
- ¼ cup of brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup applesauce

Bake the muffins for about 20 to 25 minutes for normal muffins or 25 to 30 minutes for the bigger. You can check if they are ready with a toothpick. Also, you can drizzle them with chocolate (melted).
