Healthy banana muffins without butter/oil

Healthy Banana Muffins no oil/no butter

I have been on a muffin kick lately and have been searching for healthier muffin recipes to try and I came across a banana muffin recipe and decided to modify it a bit!

I went a little overboard on the mashed bananas and used 4 instead of 2 or 3 and threw in cranberries,walnuts and oats for good measure(health).

It resulted in a perfect tasting banana muffin. The cranberries added a lovely tartness and the muffin was quite moist and not too sweet.

Ingredients:-

4 medium bananas

150gms yogurt/curd (1/2 cup)

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

1 and 1/2 cups maida/plain flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup oats( Quaker instant oats)

1/2 cup cranberries

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Procedure:-

  1. In a bowl add the flour, baking soda,baking powder and salt and stir till well combined.
  2. Mash the bananas and add the curd to it and mix well.
  3. Mix in the brown sugar and cinnamon.
  4. Then add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix well on medium speed for two minutes.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir till just combined. Do not overmix. The batter will be lumpy and a lumpy batter makes for the best muffins.
  6. Finally stir in the oats,cranberries and walnuts.
  7. I got around 16 muffins that I filled to about 3/4 full each.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 180C or till done.
