Butterscotch Banana Muffins – Reduced Fat
Most “healthy” muffins still have a lot of fat in them. Granted, there is a tiny bit of fat in eggs and there is some fat in the butterscotch chips, but other than those, there is no further addition of fat in this recipe. I’ve used applesauce and mashed bananas to replace some of the fat as well as 1/3 of the sugar. The addition of the butterscotch chips helps take to fake out your taste buds 😉 You could also use chocolate chips.
