Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat standard muffin pan with butter flavored cooking spray and set aside.
Toast pecans in small skillet over medium heat until fragrant (about 5 minutes). Set aside.
In large bowl, combine bananas, applesauce, yogurt, egg substitute, splenda, vanilla and almond extract until well blended.
Add flours, wheat germ, flax meal, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir until combined.
Stir in 4 Tbsp of the toasted pecans (reserve 2 Tbsp).
Divide batter into the 12 greased muffin cups.
Top each one with 1/2 tsp of toasted chopped pecans. Press nuts lighttly into top of batter.
Bake in preheated 375 degree oven 18-21 minutes, until done.
The flax meal causes the muffins to brown faster so watch closely.
These are wonderful warm out of the oven or micro a few seconds to reheat for breakfast or a healthy snack any time of day. I like them with a touch of Smart Balance Light Margarine.
I have also made these without the splenda (or used less). A little less sweet but just as nummy!
Makes 12 muffins.

  • Delicious, healthful recipe!!! I made a few substitutions. I left the nuts out to eliminate fat, used plain yogurt instead of flavored, oat flour instead of white, and 1/2 c. sucanot as a sweetener. I also added 2 T of flax seed. I will definitely make these muffins again, thanks for sharing! - 10/29/08
