Description

These banana bread muffins are as healthy as they get, without sacrificing taste! Only 150 calories a pop. You can even add walnuts for some crunch!

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Walnuts, Chopped, (If Desired)
  • 1 cup Bananas, Mashed (for 1 Cup You'll Need About 2 Bananas)
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Oil
  • 1  Egg, Beaten
  • ¼ cups Plain Applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ½ cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • ¼ cups Oats (Quick Or Old-fashioned)
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice (Or Substitute A Pinch Each Of Nutmeg, Ginger & Allspice)
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 F. If you are using them, spread walnuts on a baking sheet and toast in the oven until they are starting to brown, about 5-7 minutes. Spray a 12-count muffin tin (recipe makes roughly 10) with cooking oil spray, or if you’re using paper liners put them into the pan and spray those.

In a large bowl mash bananas with a fork, then mix in sugar, oil, beaten egg, applesauce and vanilla. This can be done with a hand mixer if you have one, but I usually just end up using a big fork.

Combine dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl: baking soda, flours, oats, salt and spices. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in several batches, stirring to combine after each addition. This is where using a fork definitely works best. If you’re adding walnuts, gently fold in about 3/4 of the walnuts, saving the rest to top the muffins with.

Divide batter evenly between the muffin cups. It should make about 9-10 depending on how big you want your muffins. Sprinkle walnuts on top of muffins if desired.

Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow them to cool.

Should keep in an airtight container for at least a week.

Since these are more or less “low fat”, they tend to stick to paper liners. Before eating, I reheated them for about 10 seconds in the microwave, which made them perfectly moist and helped the paper liner not stick too much when I pulled it off.
