    Oh mmmm, these muffins are sooo good! They are moist, tasty and very satisfying! Loved how easy and quick these were to put together and how awesome they tasted! The wintery spices go great with the banana! YUM!<br/>I only made 1/4 the recipe for just my sis and me ending up with 4 nicely sized muffins. As my bananas were very ripe I left out the sugar and instead of a commercial egg sub, I used applesauce. That worked out really well.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this definite keeper with us, MsSally! Ill make these again for sure!<br/>Made and reviewed for I Recommend Tag Game and the fruit event in the photo forum July 2011.

    I have tried several low fat Banana muffins and they usually are so dry. I made these and changed a few ingredients. I'm on Weight Watchers and I just could not find a banana buttermilk muffin that sounded good and low in fat & calories. The ingredients that I used were canola oil instead of applesauce because I had no applesauce and used 1 regular egg instead of a egg substitute and I added 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips and these were wonderful. Nice and moist,had to watch the timer as I made jumbo muffins (about 8) and they took about 22 minutes to bake,keeping a eye on them. I use a cake tester to check them to make sure they are done completely. Do not over mix the batter just enough to get all ingredients mixed up. Definitely will be making these again. I put 4 in freezer to pull out when I'm craving something good to eat! Key to moist muffins is not to over bake them,keep a watch on them on the last few minutes. Don't know how many WW points these are but you have to treat yourself once in awhile.

    No-one would guess that these deliciously moist and flavoursome muffins are so low in fat. I made mine exactly to the recipe, except for using an egg rather than egg substitute, and I'll certainly be making them again! The free-range eggs I get direct from a workmate's farm are just SO delicious I've never been in the least tempted to seek out egg substitutes. Made for the EVERY DAY IS A HOLIDAY! game.

    So yummy! I used an egg instead of the egg substitute, and 3 large bananas. Took 20 minutes to bake and came out very moist, which I was pleased with. I think next time I'll add some walnuts. I've never used the applesauce/buttermilk combo, but it worked really well in place of oil or butter. Thanks for a keeper!

    These muffins were made of help lure in potential buyers during a park-wide garage sale! Whether it gets me more buyers or just more of those who appreciate my baked goods, I'm not sure, but I enjoy doing it, & I really enjoyed making & eating these tasty muffins of yours! What with the healthy aspect & their great taste, they're definitely worth making again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]


<p>First, I'd like thank everyone who reviews my recipes. I can't thank each of you personally although I try. <br /><br />I Live in central Virginia, 5 miles from where I grew up, w/ my Husband of 17 years and my beautiful daughter. She is 10 and is the joy of my life. We waited for a long time to be blessed with a child and it is the best thing I've ever done. Be a mother. <br /><br />I love to cook. We eat very healthy, after a life altering experience at 31 I've been on a journey to be healthy and lose weight.&nbsp; I've lost 50 lbs and have kept most all of it off for the last 9 years. There are always fluxs, durring stressful times, but I've mananged to keep most of the weight off.&nbsp; My best advice to anyone trying to lose weight is to remember that it didn't get there overnight and it won't come off overnight. I've never said I was on a diet. It is a lifestyle.</p> <p>When Zaar first changed to Food I took a short hiatus. I was going thru a very hard time in life and was completely unmotivated to do anything and thus gave up my hosting duties on Holiday Tag.&nbsp; But now with a new perspective I'm hoping to get back to cooking and tagging.</p> <p><br /><br />Things I've participated in..... <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/ParticipationBanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><a href=http://s10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/Football%20Pool%202008/?action=view?t=FootballPoolWk4.gif target=_blank><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/Football%20Pool%202008/FootballPoolWk4.gif border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/pt-shutterbug-banner-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Kaffee-sticker.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/derf16/food%20photography%20series/MuffinLovesticker.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/photo-swap-7sticky.jpg alt=/ /> <img src=http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q23/vseward/Bevy/officialmemberofthebevtaggame.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/personal/FRENCH-foodfun.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/holidaylightssticker.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=/ alt= /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=PAC /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/cheesesticker.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br />And in honor of my mother and in rememberence of my sister in law. <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/TasteofYellow.jpg alt=/ /></p>
