Dietetic Banana Nut Muffins

These muffins have no sugar and no fat, but are moist and tasty. Instead of regular applesauce, I sometimes use mango-peach to give the muffins more flavor. Great recipe for diabetics! You can use all white flour instead the whole wheat flour, too.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup whole wheat flour

  • ¾ cup granular sucrolose sweetener (such as Splenda®)

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 egg whites

  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana

  • ¼ cup applesauce

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin tin, or line with paper muffin liners.

  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar substitute, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, mix together the egg whites, mashed banana and applesauce. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until just blended. Fill prepared muffin cups 3/4 full.

  3. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top springs back when lightly touched. Allow muffins to cool in the pan over a wire rack for a little while before tapping them out of the pan.
