I am now actually "watching" my diet, and in the process am trying to make my favorites in a "low fat" manner. I took my favorite muffin recipes and combined them, made some adjustments and came up with this great recipe. Hope you enjoy them!
- 3 large bananas, mashed
- 1⁄2 cup white sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup flour (you can use whole wheat for a change if you like)
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats (instant is fine)
- 1⁄3 cup applesauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips
- Add sugar to mashed bananas and mix.
- Add beaten egg and mix.
- In a separate bowl mix all dry ingredients.
- Add dry ingredients to the banana mixture and mix well.
- Mix in applesauce.
- Add chocolate chips and Stir.
- Spoon into medium size muffin tin (I use paper muffin cups so they won't stick) and fill 3/4's full.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350.
Loved this recipe! After reading the other reviews, I added a bit of pure vanilla, a dash of cinnamon and I used splenda in place of sugar (reduced to 1/4 cup), increased the apple sauce to 1/2 cup, used all whole wheat flour and I sprayed the muffin liners with cooking spray before filling them. Will make this recipe again and again! Wonderful way to use up those bananas in my freezer!!
Great recipe! I used whole wheat flour; Splenda (1/4 cup was sweet enough); 1/2 cup applesauce (unsweetened); added in about a tsp. each of vanilla and cinnamon; substituted walnuts for the chocolate chips. (Believe me, I would love the chocolate "kick" - we just cannot have the sugar). The result was tasty and tender, a really yummy little muffin that is a treat and easy on the diet. Thanks for this one!
YUM YUM YUM! I substituted Splenda for the sugar to save 35 calories per muffin, and they taste great. Good way to use up over-ripe bananas and get your chocolate fix all at once!
