Low Fat Banana Muffins

I love all things banana especially Banana Muffins and Bread. These muffins are low fat and delicious. They are also dairy free.

Instead of using milk and butter to make these muffins moist the recipe calls for apple sauce and mashed up banana’s. I have tried many recipes with apple sauce and they usually turn out super dense, but these are light, moist and yummy.


1 cup of Flour
1 tbsp of Baking Powder
1/2 tsp of Baking Soda
1/8 tsp of Kosher Salt
1 cup of mashed Banana’s
1/4 cup of Applesauce
1/4 cup Sugar
1 Egg
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Grab two bowls and in one bowl mix together Flour, Salt, Baking Power, Baking Soda.
  3. In the second bowl beat together Egg, Banana, Sugar, Applesauce and Vanilla.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  5. Pour mixture into the muffins tins and bake for 18-20 mins.
  6. Cool and Serve.

My Kitchen Tools

The 12 cup mini muffin baking pan is my favourite kitchen tool and I use it for many baking recipes. A good mixing bowl and silicone spatulas are also essential kitchen tools to have and makes any meal prep so much more enjoyable with the right tools.

    Is this WW points plus or the old WW points?

      Hello Melody,

      All the point values on my site use the old system. I never did transfer over to the new system when it was released. I figured since the old system worked so well, why mess with a good thing 🙂ReplyCancel

    Sad to say when I plug in these ingredients to my WW recipe counter – I come up with 2 WW Points per big muffin.

    But a pretty good muffin – I’m going to see if I can increase the number of muffins with adding blueberries and raspberries and lower the WW points.

    Thanks for the recipe. Mary LouReplyCancel
