They have 4 tsp of sugar per muffin plus chocolate and banana. Do these qualify for the US food program? I'm not knocking the taste! I'm sure they're delicious and banana chocolate chip is a fav here.

Oh and I used 1/2 organic white and 1/2 whole wheat flour (I always use half and half) + oats so I would think as a grain they would.
I used 1 3/4 C sugar (onlly 3/4 brown because that is what I had left) and I got 24 full size muffins, 24 mini and 3 loaves so even if you said 36 muffins that is 2.3 tsp per muffin or 9g of sugar per muffin. You might even be able to cut the sugar a little more to 1 1/2 if you wanted.

I was going by the original recipe which says it makes 12 muffins.

I have a recipe with all whole wheat and no sugar (honey instead).

post it please We use a lot of honey around here. I was just gifted like 49 ripe bananas and I liked that this recipe didn't have butter because I didn't have any.

BTW - with most baked goods you can substitute apple sauce for butter/margarine/oil in case you use a different recipe.

I like to keep those little 6 packs of apple sauce handy for this. Do measure it though - I can't remember if they hold a half cup or 1/3.

Banana Chocolate chip is the ONLY way I make banana muffins. Though I admit that I tend to be lazy about the individual muffins and often just dump it in a 13 x 9 pan (pam it first) and just cut it into brownies of sorts.

I am making these now & they smell great! I followed recipe & also added 1c oats...cant wait to try them!

Banana is having a lot of benefits but most of the kids don't like to eat it because they don't like its smell. So, for those kids this is a nice trick to give them banana to eat.
