This weekend I made some amazing muffins for breakfast. I am actually impressed on how wonderful they turned out. They are so light, fluffy and has great flavor, plus they are just over 100 calories and less than 1 gram of fat. Take that fatty muffins! I love muffins as a treat and with these muffins I don’t feel guilty what so ever! Oh, the muffins I am sharing with you are my newest member to my muffin collection; Skinny Blueberry Banana Muffins.
These muffins are so good! They do not contain any butter or fat! I made them with greek yogurt for protein boost and moisture. Also the banana also keeps the muffins nice and moist. The muffins have a nice banana flavor and are not overly sweet. I don’t like my muffins to sweet. The blueberries add a nice pop of color and flavor. I love when the blueberries pop in my mouth.
This recipe makes for 17 wonderful, average size muffins and they are rounded out perfectly. I hate when my muffins turn out flat, but not these bad boys. They fluffed up nicely.
The muffins are perfect for serving at brunch or breakfast, but also make a nice on the run breakfast. I froze my muffins and will grab one in the morning to have at work with my coffee. Can’t live without my morning cup of Joe!
I am really pleased with these Skinny Blueberry Banana Muffins. My Husband had no clue they are healthy for you. The texture of the muffins are very nice. When you pick them up they feel light and airy. But when you bite into them, you get a nice moist muffin with lots of banana flavor. For extra flavor I added Cardamom, but you could add Cinnamon if you like.
