Banana, raspberry and chocolate chip muffins

For a healthy snack under 100 calories, these Banana, Raspberry And Chocolate Chip Muffins are perfect.

There’s no need for a muffin to contain vast amounts of sugar like the ones you find in cafes or at the supermarket – check the label as often there is as much sugar as there is flour.

These muffins are sweetened with fruit and a small amount of maple syrup, making them a much healthier choice.

Want to make these muffins nut free and lunchbox friendly? Swap the almond milk for regular milk or oat milk instead.

Enjoy these muffins as a snack as part of the  28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
