Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Just a quick question - was going to try these, but am confused by the quantity of sugar. 1/4 --- 1/4 what? I assume 1/4 cup? Didn't want them to end up too sweet. Can anyone confirm this? Excited to give it a try.
I did go ahead & make. Tasty, but even better with a small kick of cinnamon.

These were super yummy! Although, I think the recipe may be slightly off. It calls for 1 Tablespoon of baking powder and I think it should be 1 teaspoon. I made it with 1 teaspoon and it turned out just fine. Adding 1T would make the sodium content much higher. Submitted by:

I made the apple sauce with cooking apples and maple syrup, cut out the sugar from the recipe and added extra apple sauce, also 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, and substituted the flour with wholemeal flour. DELICIOUS and very healthy ! Submitted by:

Very good flavor for such little calories! I added 1 tsp of cinnamon and subbed 1/8 cup honey for the sugar. Also used egg beaters instead of real eggs. I cooked them for 17 minutes and they were still pretty spongey, not sure if that means they should have been cooked longer or not. Submitted by:

These muffins are super good! I added some cinnamon and would have added some nutmeg had I had some :/. I think the next time I make these I might decrease the sugar and bump up the banana and applesauce... Submitted by:

Sounds great! Just came out of the oven and they smell delicious! I had to use strawberry applesauce (no sugar added) because that's all we had, but I think it will be good! Strawberry-banana = yum! Submitted by:

These muffins are moist and delicious!

To boost the protein content, I snuck in 1/2 a scoop of vanilla-flavored protein powder (and omitted the vanilla extract).

And like some other reviewers, I used 1/2 cup of of whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup regular white flour.

Yum!

I made these this morning. I made them into 9 muffins, used only egg whites, and used Splenda for the same calories as 12. I'm sure they will taste great. Right now they are baking and they look beautiful! Thanks for this, Chicklet!!! Submitted by:

These muffins are AMAZING! No one could believe they were low-cal! I replaced the 1/4 cup sugar with 2/3 cup Splenda, and the applesauce for 1 pureed green apple. I also added 1/2 tbsp cinnamon. The result was 12 very sweet, flavorful, super-moist 68-calorie muffins! Submitted by:

I added 1/4c of walnuts and golden raisins, which does up the calorie count, however, upon viewing the original nutritional information, it appears that the measurements for the flour and the bananas are incorrect,they should be 8 not, .08. 1 cup of flour is 455 calories and 1 cup of bananas is 200!
