Very Easy and Healthy Banana Muffins

What do you do when you are presented with some very, very ripe bananas and some apples that look a bit bruised, well you make these 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.

Banana Muffins

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.

Apple Sauce
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.
