No-Fat Banana Muffins

Yesterday was the first really cool day that I woke up to, so instantly I had a craving for a cup of coffee and a warm breakfast. As soon as the mornings are crisp and the air smells fresh I get excited to open my windows and start baking! So I figured why not make muffins?! I love homemade muffins and I really needed to use up some of my nasty overripe black  banana’s taking up space in our freezer. This recipe is great because there is no oil or butter in it. I substituted it using applesauce and you won’t even know because they are soooo sweet and moist. I wasn’t too keen on making them really healthy this time because sometimes a treat just needs to be a treat. But for those of you not wanting muffin-top (pun intended) the healthier substitutes are listed in the brackets!

Ingredients

  • 3 very ripe banana’s,  mashed
  • 2 eggs, beaten (egg whites)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour (1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup oatmeal)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup white sugar (3/4 cup honey)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • chocolate chips (optional)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease or line muffin pan

2. In a medium bowl, mash bananas well. Add eggs, applesauce and vanilla

3. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, sugar and baking soda. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture. (Do not overmix or they will be tough)

4. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups. (I topped half of my muffins with a handful of chocolate chip)

5.  Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean. Enjoy!

A film is just like a muffin. You make it. You put it on the table. One person might say “Oh, I don’t like it.” One might say “it’s the best muffin ever made”…. -Denzel Washington

  5. Just put these in the oven! I subbed the sugar for honey and I added half a cup of mini chocolate chips. Comes out to about 137 calories a muffin since I got 18 out of it. 🙂 Hope they’re good.
