Banana Muffin Recipe

Fruit-Sweetened Muffins — You Won't Miss the Sugar

While making a loaf of banana bread is a tasty way to give new life to an overripe bunch, by adding other fruits to the batter, you can leave out the refined sugars and still enjoy a naturally sweet muffin. Cutting the sugar dramatically cuts the calories so each muffin is only 100 compared to these banana smoothie muffins that are 155. It also has one-quarter the grams of sugars.

This is the perfect recipe to warm up your kitchen on a cold, blustery day. And don't worry if your strawberries are a little shriveled or your grapes a little soft — just like the bananas, they bake up beautifully so they won't have to go to waste. And if it's important to you, these moist muffins are also vegan, which cuts down on the cholesterol and saturated fats.
