These muffins are oil-free and have a small amount of sugar, so they’re perfect for breakfast and for snacks. They’re not heavy, but definitely hearty!

Cooking time: 35 minutes

Serves: 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 large bananas
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup of applesauce
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 2 tsp of cinnamon

 

First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Mash the bananas in a bowl and combine with your applesauce, cinnamon, vanilla, peanut butter, egg and sugar. In another bowl, mix all your dry ingredients (your flour, oats, baking soda and baking powder).

Next, gradually incorporate your dry ingredients with your wet ingredients. Once all mixed, line a muffin tin with paper liners and scoop the mixture evenly in the 12 cups.

Once your oven is preheated, pop the muffin batter into the oven and bake for 35 minutes. After around 28 minutes, check the inside of your muffins with a toothpick to see if it’s still runny. If the middle seems very soft, put them back in until the toothpick comes out dry.

These are super easy and super healthy! The applesauce makes a great substitution for oil in baking, so keep that in mind to make all your cakes and favourite recipes a little bit healthier.
