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.

This recipe makes 15 delicious muffins – great for breakfast or after-school snack.

In a large bowl, whisk together:
1/2 cup Applesauce, unsweetened
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
3 Ripe Bananas, mashed
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract

Add to the above, stir to incorporate:
1 cup AP Flour
1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup Oatmeal, Quick
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 cup Butterscotch Chips (or Chocolate Chips)

Scoop into paper lined muffin pan.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
