Vegan Blueberry Banana Muffins

Posted Jun 06 2009 12:00am


I came up with this vegan recipe a few years ago when I was helping my son to lose weight, as an occasional treat. I helped him to lose 80 pounds and he's kept it off for over 2 years now. These are much better than any store bought snacks. Those 100 calorie packs they sell annoy me-they are just 100 calories of nutrient deficient crap. A snack can have some nutritious ingredients and still taste yummy. These muffins have only 128 calories each if you make 16 and they are full of antioxidants, omega 3, potassium, b vitamins and fiber. Extras can be frozen for up to a month.

1 c. whole wheat pastry flour

4 very ripe mashed bananas
1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
