Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

I found this recipe on a blog called Chinese Grandmother!  Her recipe looked amazing and I wanted to try it with a few healthy changes.  Guess what?  It turned out delicious!  Next time I will substitute dried blueberries for chocolate chips!

Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 cup flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup flaxseed meal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup apple sauce
1 egg
1/2 cup non-fat yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mashed bananas (2 to 3)
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix flours, sugar, flaxseed meal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  In another bowl, mix eggs, yogurt, apple sauce, and vanilla.  Mash bananas and add to egg mixture.  Mix dry and wet ingredients.  Add chocolate chips and mix until combined.

Pour mixture into 4 lightly greased and floured mini loaf pans.  Bake 40-45 minutes until tops are brown and a toothpick inserted into the bread comes out clean.
