Low-cal, Low-fat, amazingly delicious banana chocolate chip muffins

Submitted by: LAUREN_810

Introduction

This recipe just came out of experimenting with a bunch of different banana bread recipes I have. What really makes these stand out is the unique flavor of the almond extract. So yummy!!!

    * Agave Nectar, 0.5 tbsp

Directions

Preheat oven to 350
Cream together sugar substitute, agave sweetener, applesauce, milk and egg beater. Mix in bananas, after soaking them in coffee (soaking them in dark rum is also tasty).
In separate bowl sift together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Mix together dry with wet. Add vanilla and almond extracts, and chocolate chips.
Spray muffin tin with (no cal no fat) cooking spray, pour mixture in tray.
Bake for about 40 min or until tooth pick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out dry. (Muffins do take a shorter amount of time to bake than an entire loaf, so just be aware)

    These were very easy to make and turned out incredible! They were very moist and delicious even according to a chef who tried them. :) I will be making these again... probably a lot. - 12/31/09

  • These were delicious. Agave nectar is agave syrup which I found in the health food section of the grocery store Loblaws. They were very sweet and next time I'll put less Splenda - 5/1/13

  • What is Agave Nectar and where do I find it. This looks like a recipe I want to try. - 2/13/10

    Agave nectar is a honey-like sweetener (but less viscous than honey, and a little sweeter). You can definitely find it at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods... not sure where else though. Good luck!

  • We loved these muffins! I didn't have the agave nectar when I made these and didn't notice. I'm guessing they would have been a little sweeter if I'd used the agave. Anyway, they were still delicious! - 1/9/10
