Print Friendly

These muffins are so wonderfully moist, light, and loaded with fresh banana flavor that you’d never guess that they are so low in fat and so high in fiber.  To put it simply – they’re one of the best combo’s of tasty and healthy you’ll ever meet.

Makes 12 servings

Ingredients

1 cup mashed banana (about 2 medium bananas)
1  cup unsweetened shredded bran cereal (like All-Bran)
1/4 cup buttermilk
2  large egg whites
2  tablespoons canola oil
2  teaspoons molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla
1  cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup no-calorie granulated sweetener*
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray standard 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick baking spray.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together the first 7 ingredients (banana through vanilla). Set aside for at least 5 minutes to soften bran.

3. In a large bowl, combine flour, Splenda, baking soda, baking powder, and cream of tartar. Stir; make a well center and add the banana mixture. Using a large spoon or spatula, stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

4. Bake for 15 minutes or until center springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

* Or 2 tablespoons Truvia for Baking

Marlene Say’s:

For these muffins, be sure to use only shredded bran cereal, not bran flakes or powdered unprocessed bran.
