I'm into banana recipes lately. I just got done making and eating one of these, and I knew I would have to sit down and share it. Right now, I'm anticipating tomorrow when I will have another one. This is another recipe by Joanna Lund. The diabetic exchanges per serving are: 1 1/2 Starch, 1/2 Fruit and 1/2 Fat. Each serving (muffin) is only 137 calories.

These are fab! I had 3 cups of lowfat bisquick to use, and tons of bananas in my freezer. I made this as written except I doubled the recipe. My muffin tins are small so I ended up with 24 muffins that are moist and lovely. I'll make these again.

I'm giving this 5 stars, but for my own version!! I made these as "unhealthy" muffins.:) I used regular Bisquick, and 1/4 cup regular brown sugar only.I also added some raisins as well as the nuts, and a bit of cinnamon and cardamom. I may try them again with just cinnamon and just cardamom to see how that works for flavor.It made exactly 8 muffins as stated and they were moist and flavorful.I may also reduce the sugar next time or use white instead, I think adding the raisins upped the sweetness.Otherwise, very good!!

Mmmmmmmmarvelous muffins. I used E-Z Low Fat Bisquick Mix for the Bisquick and then just folloewd the directions to get perfect golden (15 mins baking) muffins that are just delicious. I used 1/4 cup of egg white for the egg. Thanks so much Goochie for a great healthy treat.
