Low-Fat Banana Walnut Muffins

Many of you have been asking if we can make a “low-fat” muffin, and at first, we were a little tempted to say no, but in that same moment, we welcomed the challenge! 

Since everyone loves our recipe for our banana bread,  we decided to make low-fat banana walnut muffins.

So immediately we got to work experimenting,  and after a few batches of mixing and baking,  we made some low-fat banana walnut muffins and brought the treats to some friends. We let them be the judge and  we were very happy to hear, they all gave us a thumbs-up!

Low-Fat Banana Walnut Muffins

  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup low fat sour cream
  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 tsp. baking soda
  • 3+1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 chopped walnuts

In a large bowl, blend together oil, sugar and eggs. Add all dry ingredients and blend until well combined.  Add mashed bananas, blend again. Stir in the walnuts.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 full with batter. Lightly sprinkle sugar and some cinnamon.
Top each muffin with a few extra chopped walnuts.

Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Bake at 325 degrees for 20 – 22 minutes.

Remove and place muffins in an air-tight container, refrigerate or freeze.

Yields: 30 muffins
