Crumby Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins Recipe


I found this recipe on What's Cookin'? blog. It seemed to be lower fat than most recipes. I had the right amount of bananas for the recipe, so I made them. They are soooo delicious. Those that follow Weight Watchers....only 3 points per muffin! Yay!

Ingredients:

Muffins:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
dash salt
3 bananas
3/4 cup sugar1 egg
1/3 cup applesauce
1/4 cup chocolate chips, optional

Topping:
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoon butter

Directions:

Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in large bowl.

In a small bowl, thoroughly mash bananas with a fork or potato masher. Add sugar, egg, and applesauce. Mix well with electric blender.

Pour banana mixture into dry ingredients and mix with spoon until all is moist and blended. Stir in chocolate chips at this time.

Grease or line a muffin tin and add muffin mixture.

For the topping- Mix all dry ingredients well in small bowl. Cut in butter until the mixture is nice and crumbly.

Sprinkle some of the crumb topping on each muffin.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

Makes about 18 muffins.
