Instead of using any form of sugar (including honey or maple syrup), we sweeten these fruity muffins with applesauce and pureed banana. They pop with fresh berry flavour in every bite, with a subtle sweetness and faint banana flavour (don’t worry—it doesn’t overpower the berries). Since they lack sugar, which caramelizes and aids in browning baked goods, these muffins will be lighter in colour than you might expect.

Ingredients

Banana(s)

1 small, about 5 oz unpeeled

Unsweetened applesauce

½ cup(s)

Canola oil

2 tsp(s)

Raw egg(s)

2 large

White self-rising flour

2 cup(s)

Fresh blueberries

1½ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Break banana into several pieces and place in a mini food processor. Add applesauce and process until completely smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Add oil and eggs; pulse until well combined.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour and banana mixture. Fold in berries. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups. Bake at 375°F until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  4. Serving size: 1 muffin

Notes

These muffins freeze well; just reheat in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds to thaw.
