Low fat, low sugar banana muffins.

Bananas and Baking, one of my favourite combinations. We often have a couple of bananas hanging around earmarked for mummy to bake with as no-one like over-ripe bananas in our house. This weekend I decided to move away from our beloved flapjacks and try out some muffins. I’d seen a recipe somewhere that used yoghurt and banana with hardly any sugar or fat and that had got stuck in my mind, Of course I have no idea what the recipe was or where it was and it was a wheat containing recipe…. so this is where my baking brain took me.

The result. A lovely moist, springy muffin that has little hidden gems of banana hidden inside. These are going to be come a regular in our house and lend themselves to all kinds of variations. Chocolate chips, raisins, dried cranberries mmmmm.

Dietitian UK: Healthy low fat, low sugar banana muffins

These muffins have 5g sugar, 1 g fat and 72kcals per muffin which is pretty healthy. The oats are wholegrain and the bananas give them a great fruit boost. Great for enjoying mid afternoon when you fancy cake or as a snack for the kids. Compare this to other toddler snacks you can buy and these are a much healthier option. These are also perfect for making with kids, I know my toddler will be having a go.

  1. Hi Priya, sounds lovely…I will try them. When you say oats do you mean something like regular porridge oats? Thankyou.

  2. Great! Came together in no time, high protein and our toddler loved them. Add that to the fact that the ingredients are minimal and always around the house – a winner!

  3. Love this recipe!! Can these muffins be frozen? (Even though I could probably eat a whole batch at one if I wanted to!)
