Description

A tasty muffin that is low in fat and cholesterol free!

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup All-purpose Flour
  • ½ cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • ¼ cups Flax Seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Peel
  • 3 whole Ripe Bananas (large), Mashed
  • ¾ cups Agave Nectar (can Use Sugar)
  • 3 Tablespoons Liquid Egg White (can Use 1 Large Egg Instead)
  • ½ cups Applesauce (can Use 1/3 Cup Butter, Melted)
  • 1 cup Fresh Or Frozen Blueberries (if Using Frozen Blueberries, Do Not Thaw)
  • 1 Tablespoon All-purpose Flour, To Toss Blueberries In

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line the muffin tray with paper cups.
2. Combine flour, oats, flax seeds, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest in a medium bowl. Use a whisk to mix together and make a well in the center.
3. In another bowl, mash bananas; add agave nectar (or sugar), egg and applesauce (or melted butter); mix well. Pour mixture into the well. Mix batter until just moistened; do not over mix.
4. Toss blueberries with 1 tablespoon flour and gently fold into batter.
5. Fill prepared muffin cups about 3/4 full. Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and cool on wire racks.

Please note: these stick to the paper cups when warm, but once they cool completely, they no longer stick.

I made these over the weekend and added pecans to the batch—they are delicious and I can’t stop eating them! The next time I make these (and there will be a next time) i’m going to either add some vanilla and/or cinnamon for a little kick. So delicious!

Glad you both liked them. My husband is battling his cholesterol and I was trying to come up with something that he could eat without feeling too guilty. I had some bananas that needed to be used. I had been making him the banana nut bread that I have posted on here, but it isn’t exactly healthy, so I decided to try my hand at something that is fairly healthy. I was impressed with how they turned out! I just made another batch and left out the flax seeds. Still tasty, but I think they are better with them.

Craisins…..that sounds tasty! I’ll have to give that a try. Or…crasins and orange peel!!

I made these over the weekend for my family and everyone loved them. I also brought them to work this morning and no one could tell they were “healthy.” I used white whole wheat flour as well and …YUM! I think I might add Craisins next time since I add them to my regular banana bread.

These were yummy..very moist! I added 2 heaping tablespoons of Greek yogurt and 1/4 cup of flour. I also used half whole-wheat flour and half bread flour. Would also be tasty with some nuts added in!
