Banana Blueberry Muffins - 4 PointsPlus (Weight Watchers)

These may be small muffins, but they're delicious and full of flavour! I actually got this recipe from the Weight Watchers website. Their recipe used 2 large eggs but I had egg white substitute in the fridge so I used 1/4 cup of that instead. It didn't change the points value though. I also added blueberries. I think next time I'll try this recipe with 1/4 cup of apple sauce in place of the oil. It cuts the points in half!

12 servings
(Per serving : 4 PointsPlus / 130 Calories)
(With apple sauce : 2 PointsPlus / 92 Calories)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup egg white substitute
1/4 cup canola oil
1 1/2 teaspoon 2% milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 medium bananas, mashed
1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Preheat the oven to 325F and line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

Combine sugars, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg and salt in a bowl with a whisk.

In a measuring cup, measure the oil to 1/4 cup, then add egg substitute until it reaches the 1/2 cup mark. Add the milk, vanilla and maxhed bananas and give it a good stir with a fork.

Stir the wet mixture into the dry just until combined, then stir in the blueberries.

Divide batter among the 12 muffin cups and bake for about 18 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
