Saturday Baking

I like to bake something on the weekends or make a special breakfast. Usually Hazel helps. She didn't want to help this morning at least not while I was baking. She of course wanted to an hour later. This morning I tweaked my banana applesauce muffin recipe. I've been playing with it to make it lower in fat and WW points. The original recipe was for applesauce muffins from Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld. I got the original 6 point per muffin down to 3 points. And everyone loved them.

Applesauce Banana Muffins


Ingredients

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 ripe bananas and 2 carrots pureed together
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup skim milk
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 egg
cinnamon to sprinkle on top
1/2 Tbsp light brown sugar

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
2. Combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon and nutmeg in medium bowl.
3. Combine egg, milk, carrot/banana puree, applesauce, oil in large bowl. Then add flour mixture without over stirring.
4. Divide among the muffin pans and sprinkle some cinnamon and brown sugar on top of each. Bake 18-20 minutes then cool on rack.

Enjoy!
