Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

EZ ChocoNana Muffins

Hey everyone! Came across this recipe and it looked like a good one to lighten up and try.....and it was/is!!! I made them last night and couldn't wait for them to cool on one of my new cooling racks! The simple things in life!! These are super easy to make and truly delicious!

Makes 12 Muffins
1 Muffin = 2 PointsPlus™

1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup Splenda granulated
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
2 egg whites
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup fat-free skim milk
1 cup bananas, mashed (@3 medium)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Mix first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in the center.

In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Mix in applesauce, milk and bananas. Pour egg mixture into well. Stir until moistened.

Fill muffin tins evenly (@ 3/4 full). Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool on cooling rack @10 minutes in pan and then remove from pan to rack to completely cool.

MY SPIN: Everyone knows I love cinnamon......I put about 3 'shakes' of cinnamon in the batter. Enjoy!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*
Loving Life(time)!
