Muffins, to me, are the perfect weekend breakfast. Sleeping in, the aroma filled kitchen, reading The Funnies, surrounded by family, relaxing in your jammies…that just screams weekend perfection to me. Here is a favorite at our house….
3 Large Ripe Bananas
3/4 cup Applesauce
1/4 cup sugar (I used 1/4 cup evaporated cane juice)
1/2 cup Truvia (or 30 packets)
2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
In a blender, mix eggs, applesauce and bananas until smooth. Pour into a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until blended into a smooth batter. Fold in chocolate chips, carob chips or nuts if desired. Preheat oven to 325. Fill each opening of a sprayed muffin tin 3/4 of the way full. (I personally prefer foil liners.) Bake for 20 minutes or until light brown.
Makes 24 muffins. Each muffin (sans additions) is approximately 70 calories. They are just as good 1 – 2 days later!
**Best if eaten in your jammies on a Sunday morning.
