I was majorly craving a donut or buttery muffin this morning so I decided to try to find a recipe for some healthy muffins. I wouldn’t say these are the best muffins I have ever had, but they are filling, a little sweet, and got rid of my craving.
I wouldn’t eat more than 2 in a 24 hour period unless you are used to very large amounts of fiber in your diet… I think you catch my drift.
My bananas weren’t very ripe and all I had was applesauce baby food. I am sure they would be much sweeter if I had the proper ingredients, but I knew if I went to the store the fresh donuts would be calling my name & I may have not had the willpower needed to resist a warm apple fritter.

Recipe makes 12 muffins
2 muffins = 3 weight watchers points+
2 ripe bananas mashed
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp vanilla extract (I used 2)
2 large egg whites
1 2/3 cup oat bran
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (all I had was chocolate…oh darn)
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon (I used 1 tbsp)
In a medium bowl stir together your mashed bananas, applesauce, yogurt, vanilla, & egg whites.
In a separate bowl whisk together oat bran, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, & cinnamon.
Stir wet ingredients into dry. Let sit several minutes for batter to thicken.
Disperse evenly into 12 greased muffin tins. I used muffin papers & they stuck to them really bad.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean.
