Bit Of Banana – Applesauce Muffins is a healthy, low-fat and low-sugar recipe. A perfect muffin for those on special diets.

 

This idea has been brewing in my head for days, I just had a feeling it was going to be good.

Sure enough…this is a keeper!

Only 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in the entire recipe and no added sugar at all.  Fruit sweetened with applesauce and half a banana…raisins are optional. This recipe is gluten-free, but can, of course, be made with any flour. Eggs are optional as well.

Optional egg replacers for these muffins:
– aquafaba (garbanzo bean liquid from canned beans)
-my favorite egg replacer, EnerG Egg Replacer  

1 whole egg = 3 tablespoons aquafaba
1 egg white = 2 tablespoons aquafaba

Weight watchers count 4 points per muffin, 3 without raisins.

Enjoy!
