These are in the oven right now, so I am not sure how they are going to turn out, but I wanted to save the recipe while I still have it fresh in my mind in case they turn out to be a hit! I adapted a recipe I found on enkivillage.com, since I had some apples, oranges and bananas I needed to repurpose before they went bad (I have a toddler that likes to get into the fruit bowl and take a bite out of each piece of fruit). There is no added sugar (just a spoonful that went into the applesauce when I made it), and the applesauce replaces the butter/oil you would usually put into your baked goods so it is low in fat as well. You can add cranberries instead of raisins, walnuts instead of pecans, whatever you happen to have on hand! This recipe was meant to help clean out the pantry. UPDATE: The crumb turned out very well, but overall the muffins were a little on the sense side. They are not very sweet at all, which is how our family likes it. I actually drizzled a little honey on mine.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Trim the woody ends from the bananas, cut into chunks and add to food processor or blender along with the applesauce and orange juice.
  3. Blend thoroughly. You want the banana peels to get well blended.
  4. Add the eggs to the processor and blend well.
  5. In a separate large bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon.
  6. Add wet ingredients from the food processor to the flour mixture and mix until the flour is almost fully incorporated.
  7. Add oats, raisins and nuts and stir until just combined.
  8. Oil or butter your muffin tin and spoon the batter into it.
  9. Bake muffins for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of one of the muffins comes out clean.
