When you have bananas that are so ripe you just can’t bring yourself to eat them, it’s time for Banana Nut Bread. Or, in my case, Banana Nut Muffins. I’ve created a healthier version that won’t make you feel guilty for indulging a little!
Skinny Banana Nut Muffins
- 4-5 very ripe bananas, mashed
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp allspice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2/3 cup chopped walnuts
Line two muffin pans with 16 paper liners. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, salt, allspice, and cinnamon. In a seperate bowl, beat together the eggs and sugar until creamy. Beat in the applesauce and bananas. Fold in the dry ingredients. Fold in the nuts. Spoon batter into paper liners and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from pan to cool completely. Serve warm or at room temperature.
