After School Snack: Banana Chocolate Chip Surprise Muffins (requires no sugar, no eggs, and no butter)

I didn't measure most of the ingredients, so this will be a guesstimation:

3 bananas
about 1/4 to 1/2 cup date honey (see below)
about 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
about 1/4 cup milled flaxseed
about 1 TB. almond milk
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 cup pecans (optional)

Mix together bananas, date honey, applesauce, and flaxseed. Mix milk in to moisten. Add flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix in chocolate chips and pecans. Bake at 350 until golden brown. These were enjoyed by the kids and the husband, and myself:)

Date honey is a recipe from Kristen Morrow Feola's blog Those Who Hunger. You can go to her blog from my blog (she is a follower on here.) The date honey is made by boiling the dates down in water and adding some cinnamon. Delicious! Its great in oatmeal, on toast, and in recipes.
