I buy bunches and bunches of bananas for smoothies every week, a breakfast staple during the school year. Sometimes, I buy extra bananas just so I’ll have enough to make banana bread or these Whole Grain Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins as a special breakfast treat or after-school snack.
I am thrilled that my recipe for these Whole Grain Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins is being featured on iVillage.com today! So hop on over and read my post on 10 Kid-Approved Recipes with Whole Grains to get the recipe along with some easy tips to get kids to try whole grains.
I would love to hear your tips and tricks on getting your kids to eat whole grains.

great post – 10 kid approved healthy recipes – i love it! banana and chocolate is such an awesome combo. the chocolate morsels alone will suffice for how delicious they look! 🙂 i love it! have a great day jeanette.
Thanks Junia! These are super kid friendly, an easy way to get them to try whole grains, and I agree, the chocolate chips don’t hurt.
I would not feel guilty at all enjoying those wholesome muffins for the breakfast!
Thanks Angie – white whole wheat flour is such an easy switch out for all purpose flour, and makes these muffins a lot healthier.
These are definitely wholesome enough to enjoy for breakfast without feeling guilty!

These look great! Nice feature on ivillage as well. So many yummy whole grain muffins to choose from. Banana and chocolate are such a wicked pair.
Thanks France! There are lots of whole grain muffins – I’d like to try a few of these soon.
Awesome 🙂 I like the new ‘layout’ of the blog ^^
Thanks Kathy! Glad you like it.
Well, I may not have kids but I do have a father who refuses to eat whole grain anything. My solution is to force feed him. 😛
I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t need much persuasion with these though. They look amazing!
Joanne – you crack me up! Although it is sometimes easier to force feed adults 😉 if you can convince them it’s good for them.
Swoon! Every muffin needs a little chocolate in my opinion!
Thanks Sommer – chocolate can entice the pickiest eater!
Another great banana recipe to save – thanks – always looking for other things to do with my old bananas than the same banana bread . . .
Thanks – yes, this is a great way to use up those ripe bananas. I buy extra bananas just so I can make banana bread and banana muffins sometimes.

I saw the recipe the other day when you shared via SU and bookmarked it. Congratulations once again Jeanette. Well deserved
Thanks Roxana, hope you have a chance to try these muffins. I know you’re such a good baker, so would love to hear what you think. 😉
I usually don’t eat muffins b/c of the white flour and sugar. A whole wheat variety is so much more appealing…and yours look fabulous!
Thanks Liz, it is so easy to make muffins healthier 😉
These muffins look fantastic, Jeanette! Yay, congrats on being featured on iVillage too 🙂 So far, my 3 year old will eat whole grains if I sneak in some sort of fruit. Hopefully it stays that way but he is starting to get pickier with a lot of food he used to love. These banana muffins would be a sure winner with him 🙂
Thanks Kelly! Using 1/2 whole grain flour in baked recipes seems to slide by the picky eaters, especially if you use one that’s not dark in color.
