Around this time of year, we start to get little piles of very brown bananas piling up in the fruit bowl. This low-fat banana muffin recipe takes less than ten minutes to mix together, and turns out some lovely little muffins for workday snacks.
Preheat the oven to 350.
In a big bowl, mix together 1 cup mashed, ripe bananas; 1/4 cup sugar; 1 egg; 1/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt (or sour cream); 1/2 tsp vanilla extract; 1/2 cup coconut flakes; and a sprinkle each of nutmeg and cinnamon.
Then, stir in 1 T baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt and 1 cup white flour, just until mixed.
Spoon the muffin mix into muffin tins and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until a knife or toothpick poked in the middle of the muffin comes out clean. It’s always nice to eat at least one hot and fresh out of the oven with a little dollop of butter.
