Clean Eating: Banana Muffins

January 24, 2013

Our family always has a few ripened bananas by the end of the week so I make use of them to create my husband and sons favorite snack: miniature banana muffins! I love them because they are only around 50 calories each and 12grams of carbs (give or take). I’ve been asked to post this recipe for some time so I apologize for the delay! Just to let everyone know… you can substitute anything to make this more gluten or sugar free. I don’t use artificial sweeteners. When I have a sugar craving I try to eat a small amount of the real deal instead of a lot of the fake deal (you know what I mean?)

With that said, you need:

Wet ingredients (mix FIRST. Then add the dry ingredients)
3 bananas mashed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg

Dry ingredients (mix together in separate bowl)
1.5 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Place in 375 degree oven for 10-15 minutes. (it cooks faster when you use miniature muffin tins) WHICH, btw, I DO use for most of my baking. It helps with portion control. I can usually make 27 mini muffins with this recipe. Each muffin averages out to 50 calories and 10-12 grams of carbs.

    At first look I thought these were puff pastries. Banana muffins @50 calories sound good too 🙂 can’t wait to try it )))

    My husband and I just love this recipe! I make the mini version it’s perfect for a fast healthy snack. The first time I made them we thought they were yummy but a little spongy. So when I made them last week I added 2Tbsp of all natural apple sauce and the consistency was more breadlike. I just love all these recipes!! Thank you!!

      I saw your comment about adding apple sauce, I added 2 tablespoons of plain yoghurt instead and they turned out a lovely consistency. As there is no oil in the recipe as written I think it needs 2 tablespoons of apple sauce, yoghurt or oil.

    I substitute a half cup of the flour for whole wheat flour, use a fourth cup of sugar and a fourth cup of stevia in the raw, and add a MASSIVE heap of peanut butter to the finished batter. There’s MUCH more flavor, and it’s healthier this way!! Thanks for the recipe!
