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

(With apple sauce : 2 PointsPlus / 92 Calories)
Ingredients
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

Directions
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.
