Low Sugar, Lower Fat Mini Banana Cinnamon Nut Muffins

Submitted by: NEWLIFE4ME73

Introduction

I altered a tasty restaurant recipe that is a twist on plain banana muffins to take out most of the sugar (there's some in the Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, but you can just use all Splenda, being sure to convert to the correct measurements, if you want a sugar-free version). I also used non-fat milk and canola oil to reduce some of the fat. To make this even healthier you could also use whole-wheat flour and/or egg beaters. You can also use just about any nut you choose. The nutritional information is for walnuts.

The addition of the cinnamon and chunked bananas is a nice twist on regular banana nut muffins

Ingredients

    2.5 cup Flour
    1/2 cup Splenda
    3 Tbsp Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
    3/4 tsp Salt
    1 Tbsp Cinnamon
    1Tbsp Baking Powder
    2 Eggs
    1/3 cup non-fat milk
    1.4 cup & 2 Tbsp Canola Oil
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    1 cup Walnuts (broken up)
    5 small ripened bananas

Directions

Combine the dry items (flour, Splenda, Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, salt, baking powder, cinnamon). Whisk together to blend thoroughly. Cut up the 5 ripened bananas. Set one cut up banana aside. Combine all the wet items (oil, vanilla extract, eggs, milk, 4 bananas). Blend these to a smooth consistency. Mix dry ingredients into the wet. Stir until just moistened. Fold in the broken walnuts and remaining chunked banana. Spoon into mini muffin tins about 3/4 full (Use papers. I used a non-stick pan, but can LIGHTLY spray with Pam if needed). Bake at 400 degrees for 5-8 minutes. A toothpick should come out clean when inserted in the middle of the muffin. Makes 54 mini muffins (27 servings-2 mini muffins/per serving).

(OPTIONAL (NOT IN RECIPE): Sprinkle real sugar and cinnamon on top before baking).
