Jillian Michael's Banana Blueberry Muffins

Recipe Ingredients for Muffins - Banana Blueberry

3/4 cup banana
3/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup splenda
1/3 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
2 tbsp flaxseed
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup frozen blueberries

Recipe Directions for Muffins - Banana Blueberry

  1. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat the oven to 425F. Lightly spray a 12- cup muffin tin with olive oil or line with paper liners.

  2. In a large bowl, place the bananas, yogurt, honey, olive oil, and vanilla. Stir together until well mixed.

  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the fl our, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir until just combined. Fold in the blueberries and the nuts, if using.

  4. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tin. Place the tin in the oven and reduce the heat to 400F. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Let cool in the tin for 10 to 15 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Serve warm.

  5. For longer storage, let cool completely and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.

  12. Tips

  13. I?m surprised that Jillian recommended honey, when agave nectar has a lower glycemic index. You could also use stevia, but since it?s a powder, you may need to add additional yogurt to the batter to keep the muffins moist.

  14. Normally I would recommend substituting toasted pine nuts for the walnuts for those with nut allergies. However, Jillian is against pine nuts because, like soy, it has goitrogenic effects, meaning it swells the thyroid gland.

  15. Substitute no fat Greek yogurt for the plain yogurt for an extra protein boost. However, if the batter seems dry, add a little water to it.

  16. I like adding flaxseed to baked goods for the extra fiber and Omega-3. Yet Jillian believes you should have flaxseed only in moderation.
