Banana Muffins

I tried blueberry protein muffins from A Balanced Approach to PCOS –sadly, they weren’t great. We ate 7, I think, and 2 ended up in the trash. But then I tried these banana muffins from Eat Yourself Skinny and we all really liked them! I served them with a little fruit salad composée, given that we had an abundance of fruit that (dark) morning! 

1 1/3 cup whole wheat flour 
1 tsp. baking powder 
½ tsp. baking soda 
¼ tsp. sea salt 
½ tsp. cinnamon 
1 large egg 
3 ripe bananas, mashed 
½ cup unsweetened applesauce 
¼ cup honey 
1 tsp. vanilla 
3 Tbsp. lactose-free plain Greek yogurt 

Preheat oven to 375 °F. Grease a muffin tin (I ended up with 15 muffins). 

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt); set aside. 

In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the egg then add mashed bananas, applesauce, honey and yogurt. Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until just combined. 

Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about ¾ full and bake for about 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow muffins to cool, serve and enjoy!
