Loudly Bites: 80 Calorie Banana Muffins

Shannon Moyer shares a quick, affordable and adaptable banana muffin recipe just in time for autumn.

Recipe:

1 cup flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup mashed bananas (approximately 4 bananas)

1 large egg (substitute a 1/4 cup applesauce if vegan)

Dash of vanilla extract (roughly 1/2 – 1 teaspoon)

1/4 cup applesauce

1/2 cup milk or dark chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Combine dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients and blend. If batter is too thick, slowly mix in water to thin the batter.

If desired, add in chocolate chips. Scoop batter into a greased muffin pan or paper liners and cook at 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Yields: 12 – 16 muffins, depending on scoop size.
