No added Sugar in these healthy carrot cake flavored banana muffins

If you are like me, your freezer is filled with overripe bananas. For some reason we either go through bananas within a day or two of me buying them, or they sit on the counter until they are overripe. There is no in between. When I open my freezer and the bananas start falling out, I know it is time to make something with bananas. This time it is banana muffins, Carrot Cake Banana Muffins. Oh yeah!

Low Calorie, Low Fat, 4 Weight Watchers points

When you look at the recipe, you may realize a few things are missing. First, there is no added sugar in this recipe. The only sweetness is from the fruit. If you like sweet muffins, you are going to miss it. We have cut back on sugar, so these are perfect for our palates. In fact, my daughter had two muffins when she came home from school. She loved them.

No mixer needed. These are so easy and moist

Second, there is no butter or oil. That is right, these beauties are low fat and low calorie. Since I wanted to do something a little different to these banana muffins, I added flavors from my favorite carrot cake including shredded carrots, pineapple and walnuts. Consequently, I had Carrot Cake Banana Muffins with only 112 calories a piece. Moreover, you do not need a mixer to whip these banana muffins up. A bowl and a little human power is all you need. So get those frozen bananas out of your freezer and enjoy these Carrot Cake Banana Muffins.

Love these carrot cake banana muffins. No added sugar! No butter or oil.

  4. These muffins sound delicious and I love the bright, spring feel of your photos!
  5. Can I substitute rolled oats for wheat bran?
  6. These were okay. They were dense and not sweet enough for me, but my mother loved their cakey quality and thought their sweetness level was just right. I also didn't think they were attractive.
