¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
⅓ cup mini chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate pieces
Nonstick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray the muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mash bananas with a fork. Add applesauce, egg whites, and yogurt, and stir well.
In a medium mixing bowl, add the flours, sugar, baking soda, and salt, and mix well. Add mixture to the large mixing bowl and stir to blend, but do not overmix. Mix in chocolate chips.
Using a ¼ cup measuring cup, scoop the mixture into each muffin cup. Note: You will need to do a second batch for two more muffins.

Serve warm and enjoy! Muffins will keep in a container for up to a week, or 1 month in the freezer. To reheat from room temperature: microwave for 12 seconds.
