I got this recipe out of a Gooseberry Patch cookbook and it is one of my stand-by recipes when I am watching my calories and fat. Since I am doing just that right now, thought I would put it on the zaar for easy access and hopefully someone else likes this recipe as good as I do. (I prefer to sub 3/4 of the white flour for whole wheat and use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar. I think fresh nutmeg is the key in this!)
- 1 3⁄4 cups flour
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs or 2 egg substitute
- 1 cup banana, mashed
- 1⁄2 cup applesauce
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- Combine the dry ingredients and mix well. In a separate bowl, mix all the wet ingredients. Add together and mix well.
- Pour into muffin tin.
- Bake for 15 - 20 minutes. (My oven baked right around 17 minutes.).

I made these muffins but used 1 Cup of WW flour, 3/4 C. Quick cook oats The sugar I used was all Brown Sugar added 1/2 C. Choco chips added 1tsp of Vanilla. And they turned out DELICIOUS!! They took an additional 4 mins in the oven so my total bake time was 19 mins. I just ate 3, and don't feel guilty at all!
I just made these muffins and they are deelish :-) Yes they are denser than muffins made with oil, but I personally like a dense muffin. I added some chopped pecans, but that was the only adaptation. I highly recommend this recipe!
Very dense muffins but very good. Added an extra 1/4 cup of banana because I didn't want to waste it, and used 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup light brown sugar, also added a little vanilla. Definitely grade even papers for the muffins, on mine half stick to the paper.
