Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the bananas, coconut palm sugar (or brown sugar), applesauce, egg and vanilla extract.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  • Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture until combined. Stir in two-thirds of the blueberries.
  • Spoon the muffin batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  • Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean, 15 to 17 minutes.
  • Remove the muffins from the pan and allow to cool. Serve.

Notes

Weight Watchers Points: 4 (Blue - Freestyle SP) / 4 (Green) / 4 (Purple)
Note 1: Overripe bananas are the best for banana bread, smoothies and muffins because the natural sugars intensify as the banana ripens. I use bananas that are spotted and slightly soft. Avoid fruit with large bruises.
Note 2: For higher fiber and healthier muffins and quick bread, I turn to whole wheat pastry flour. It has a lighter texture than regular whole wheat flour. You could substitute with a half and half mixture of all-purpose flour and white whole wheat flour.
Note 3: If using frozen blueberries, there’s no need to defrost them first.
