Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

This is another recipe from MY Fitness Pal stash. I think I called these healthy because they have no added fat  – the applesauce and eggs are used instead – but still.  I guess it’s the linseeds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds that give illusion of ‘healthy’.  1/2 cup of sugar for 16 muffins making for 1/2 tsp per muffin is actually pretty low in sugar and perhaps that’s why I called them healthy.  Also using cacao nibs rather than chocolate chips cuts down on sugar and unhealthy fats.
