Very Easy and Healthy Banana Muffins
These have no fat, no eggs and no sugar, a real bonus for the health concious.
The recipe needs apple sauce, as I didn't have any I made some with the apples. I have included the recipe below.
2 cups S.R. wholemeal flour + 1 heaped tsp baking powder OR 2 cups plain wholemeal flour + 1 tbsp baking powder. 1/4 cup apple sauce, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/3 cup honey or rice syrup, 2 large or 3 small very ripe bananas, 1/2 cup milk I used soy to keep the muffins healthy
Optional Topping 1/2 teaspoon of each per muffin butter, sunflower seeds & brown sugar
Preheat oven 180.c Place paper cases in a 12 cup muffin tray.
In a large bowl mash the bananas, add remaining ingredients mix together with a wooden spoon, mix until just combined.
Fill the cases and top with topping if you are using. Bake 15 - 18 minutes until tested with a skewer and it comes out clean.
3 large apples, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 2 tbsps honey or rice syrup, 1/2 cup water
Makes 1 cup
In a small saucepan or microwave bowl add all ingredients. Cook until apple has softened. In the microwave on 100% power it took 7 minutes
Once cooked if there is to much liquid drain some off,then puree to make a smooth sauce.
