Lighter Banana Muffins
Submitted by:
Makes: 12 servings adjust
This banana bread has no oil, or butter of any sort. It doesn't need it! Because this bread isn't greasy it makes great muffins without the greasy bottoms I have experienced through other recipes.



Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease or line a 12-cup muffin tin.


  • 4 Bananas, very ripe

Step 2

Place bananas into a large mixing bowl. Using a fork, mash thoroughly.


  • 2 large Egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 14 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

Step 3

Add eggs, salt, baking soda, applesauce, cinnamon and vanilla and mix to combine.


  • 34 cup White Sugar
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour

Step 4

Add sugar and flour and stir to combine.


  • 12 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips, optional

Step 5

Stir in chocolate chips, if using. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups.

Step 6

Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean.
