Chocolate Chip Muffies

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 banana
2 ounces fat free cream cheese
1/4 cup skim milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup Egg Beaters egg substitute or 2 egg whites or 1 whole egg
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix flours and baking soda.
In a larger, separate bowl, cream the remaining ingredients, leaving the oats for last. Freeze the remaining banana for a smoothie!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Farenheit.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir until just moistened.
Mix in the chocolate chips.
Grease two cookie sheets and drop scoops of dough on the sheets; I end up with 18 cookies per sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.


  1. You should totally post the recipe for the pumpkin muffies!! :)

  2. This recipe does not come close to Panera's muffie. They taste a little like a banana sponge. They are better warm for sure.

  3. I don't think the Chocolate Chips Muffies at Panera have banana in them. I ask a manager once and he said no it doesn't.

  4. I didn't realize there was cream cheese in the recipe! I'm going to try cutting out the banana, as it just doesn't seem to fit.

  5. Yeah... I experimented and added water, but I must've done something wrong, because my class said they tasted like flour and chocolate chips! Maybe next time I'll try going with the regular recipe...
