Maggie's Sugar-Free Banana Muffins

Maggie's Sugar-Free Banana Muffins

It's about the sugar. The little people toddling around my kitchen have not been told about sugar yet.

And that presents a problem. Come for brunch. Come for coffee. Most likely, I'll offer you a muffin.

Since mid-May, I've been experimenting, tweaking and tasting. I think I may have a sugar-free muffin solution.

Maggie's Sugar-Free Banana Muffins

2 very ripe bananas
1 egg
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk

Peel, slice and blend bananas in mixer.
Add egg. Beat well.
Add oil and milk. Beat well.

1 cup oatmeal (quick oats)
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 teaspoons baking powder

Stop mixer.
Sprinkle oatmeal, then flour and baking powder
over liquid ingredients. Mix until just blended.

1 cup raisins (optional)

Mix into batter. Divide into muffin cups.
Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.
Makes about 15 muffins.

Notes: Add your ingredients in this order and you'll only have one bowl to wash. If you make some small muffins, shorten baking time to about 20 minutes.

Now, the first time YOU try these, you'll notice they're not very sweet. Be patient. You'll adjust.

As for the little people? They're impressed!

Just thought I'd share,
