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!!!

Banana Blueberry Muffins

Again, I'm making up for not doing much Kitchen Therapy.  A local grocery store had blueberries on sale......even tho I still have some in the freezer, the thought of fresh blueberries made me happy. I had a couple of very ripe bananas that I wanted to use....so this is what I came up with.  I spread a little Brummel & Brown on one and it was delicious!!!

BANANA BLUEBERRY MUFFINS
Makes 12 muffins
1 muffin = 2 PointsPlus™


2 medium very ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup blueberries


Preheat oven to 350º. Spray muffin pan; set aside.

Beat together the mashed bananas and egg substitute until creamy.

Add milk and applesauce; beat well.

Add flour, baking soda and baking powder; beat well.

Gently fold in the blueberries.


Spoon into muffin pan.
 
 
 
Bake 23 minutes or until lightly browned.
 
 
 
Cool on rack.


MY SPIN: This doesn't call for cinnamon, but I sprinkled some in the batter. The next time I make this I will put a generous 1 teaspoon in for flavor......I just think they need cinnamon. Also, I put more than 1 cup of blueberries in these muffins......1 cup just didn't seem like enough. When you add more blueberries, these become a very generous muffin for a mere 2 PointsPlus™!

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. ***

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
