    hannahactually's Note:

    This is just delicious--moist and flavorful, chock full of protein, and LOW FAT! Oh, and it's at least partly whole wheat. What more could you want?!? This is a great way to work soy into your diet stealthily. :) Oh, and the secret ingredient is tofu. It replaces the fat in traditional recipes, and does a darn good job of it, too! :P Feel free to leave out the nuts. From "Tofu Quick & Easy"

      Used mini chocolate chips, but no walnuts although I wish I had. But I'm on weight watchers and was looking to keep the points low. I made these into muffins and it made 12 at 4 points each. Very moist and tasty but stuck to the muffin paper, even though I sprayed them. Maybe needed to let them cool longer, but couldn't wait! Love the taste of banana and chocolate and made for a healthy breakfast or snack.

      Yum. Looking for a nice way to use up my last box of tofu before the move and came upon this. And it used up some of my bananas in the banana graveyard (aka the freezer) so it was a win! I left out the nuts and used a white/wheat combo. This was dense and a tad spongy, but had lovely flavor that we all really enjoyed on a lazy afternoon! (I used 3/4 of a small aeseptic package of light silken tofu.)
