What's Cookin'

I made these banana bread muffins with some over-ripe bananas I had saved in my freezer.
These kids LOVE bananas but there are times when they don't get eaten quick enough!
{Which is surprising, considering how MUCH these kids eat!}
So, I put them in the freezer when the begin to go brown. And take them out when I want to make banana bread..or muffins.

So, I tried this recipe and they were okay. I rate them a 6/10. I am still looking for the PERFECT use of bananas for low calorie snacks!

Low Calorie Banana Muffins


My whole family loves these! Although they may seem small (considering the size of muffin we can get in a bakery) but we always add a helping of fruit or yogurt for breakfast. Yummy!

Minutes to Prepare and Cook


    1 cup flour
    1 Tbsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/8 tsp salt
    1 cup mashed bananas
    1/4 sugar
    1 large egg
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    1/4 cup applesauce


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease muffin pan or line with paper muffin liners.

In medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.

In separate bowl, combine banana, sugar, egg and vanilla extract. Blend until well mixed. Add applesauce. Slowly combine dry mixture to banana mixture. Blend well.

Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool before serving.
