I like this recipe because it only calls for 2 large ripe bananas. Often that is all I have left! This is a moist, tasty muffin.
- 2 large ripe bananas (or 3 med. size)
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup brown sugar (or 1/2 c. of 'Splenda' brown sugar)
- 1 1⁄4 cups plain yogurt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup flour
- 2 cups natural bran, powdery stuff. you can also buy just the right amt. at the bulk store (Quaker green box)
- 1⁄2 cup light raisins or 1⁄2 cup craisins
- 1⁄4 cup sunflower seeds
- Add the baking soda to the yogurt in a larger cup or bowl. Set this aside.
- Beat eggs, oil ,mashed bananas and sugar.
- Combine the flour, bran, raisons and sunflower seeds. Add the yogurt/soda mixture to the egg, bananas, then add the flour. Put into paper-lined large muffin tins and bake at 400 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes.
These are really great muffins. My family loved them. I made them as is. It is now one of our favorites.
I LOVE this recipe! It was exactly what I needed - those last two large almost "liquid" bananas would NOT go to waste! I wasn't thrilled with the calorie count though so I modified a few things...cutting the oil in half and using unsweetened applesauce to make up the difference...using fat-free plain yogurt...cutting the brown sugar back to 3/4 cup...and totally leaving out dried fruit. That brought it down to right at 200 calories each for 1 dozen...but I'm going to try 18 muffins the next time because the 12 I made were almost more than my "tins" could handle! Something that TASTES GOOD and is GOOD FOR YOU is always welcome! Timing was right on and the texture was light! THANK YOU for my newest weight-loss "fiber" helper!
great muffins. I made them exactly as posted. Dolly
