Well, I’m pretty weirded out because I never set out to make almost fat free muffins. It’s just that I FORGOT to put the butter in. And guess what? They’re really good. I suspect that they will be something that is better served straight out of the oven, that they will crisp up significantly as they cool. However, they’re really tasty and totally accidentally partially healthy!
2 very ripe bananas
1 very ripe peach (possibly the source of the moisture replacing the fat)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup finely chopped (or maybe coarsely, you be the judge) walnuts
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Toss the bananas and peach into a food processor and puree. Add the eggs and flavorings. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Mix the banana mixture, the dry ingredients, and the nuts with a whisk until combined. Bake in muffin tins until done (did not pay attention). You might do a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar in the tins. (Oh, and you’ll need to grease/butter/Pam them, duh.) I was really flabbergasted that these came out great. Now, granted, they are not rich and yummy. You may want to butter them. And they may be super crispy tomorrow. But in the meantime, they are surprisingly delicious and almost fat free.
*** Note. I have started just baking stuff without recipes. It’s kind of exciting.
