Review of Fiber One Banana Nut Muffin Mix

Food Review: Fiber One Banana Nut Muffin Mix

Normally, I steer clear of processed baking mixes and their artificial ingredients, but a pal of mine raves about Fiber One Apple Cinnamon Muffin Mix, so I decided to give the product line a try. I opted for the Banana Nut variation; both flavors yield muffins that contain 20 percent (five grams) of your daily fiber requirements.

Like other brands of boxed mixes, the Fiber One Muffin Mix calls for water, vegetable oil, and eggs. While the nutritional information for the packaged mix is appealing, the added ingredients double the fat content from three grams to six grams per muffin and increase the calories from 130 to 160.

The box suggests replacing the oil with applesauce and the eggs with egg whites or fat-free egg product. With the recommended substitutions, the box indicates each prepared muffin contains 140 calories and three grams of fat. Since I happened to have a ripe banana on hand, I used pureed banana instead of applesauce. My batch turned out beautifully: very moist on the inside with a delicious muffin-top crust and an unmistakable banana flavor, with bits of walnut in each muffin. For sake of unprocessed eating, I'll still make my own reduced-fat muffins, but these are a tasty alternative in a pinch.
