Recipe Ingredients for Slimmed down banana muffins

3/4 cup flour, self rising
1 large Banana (mashed)
4 T applesauce
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1 T light brown sugar
1 T sugar
1 T splenda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 T unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
2 T walnuts

Recipe Directions for Slimmed down banana muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and place the oven rack in the middle of the oven. Spray muffin pan.

  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugars, spices, and nuts. Set aside.

  3. In a medium-sized bowl combine the mashed bananas, egg, melted butter, and vanilla.

  4. With a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, lightly fold the wet ingredients (banana mixture) into the dry ingredients until just combined and batter is thick and chunky. (The important thing is not to over mix the batter. You do not want it smooth. Over mixing the batter will yield tough, rubbery muffins.)

  5. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin tins

  6. Bake about 20 - 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Place on a wire rack to cool for five minutes and then remove muffins from pan.

  7. Note: To mash bananas I have found the easiest way is to just use my fingers, a fork or a potato masher.
