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 Yogurt Muffins

Once again, I had bananas that got a bit too ripe before we had a chance to eat them. I have some frozen along with other fruits to use in my Yonanas, but STILL had some left! This is just another easy variation on Banana Muffins......and very low in P+!!!

Makes 12 Muffins
1 Muffin = 2 PointsPlus®

3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
½ cup fat-free egg substitute
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt
½ cup brown sugar, lightly packed
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup white whole wheat flour
½ cup all-purpose flour MINUS 1 TBSP
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Either line a muffin tin with liners or spray lightly.

Don't forget to spray the muffin tin on your dishwasher door to save cleanup!

Place the bananas in a large mixing bowl and mash them with a fork.

Add the egg substitute, applesauce, brown sugar and vanilla to the mashed bananas; mix well

Add the flours, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; mix just until the flours are incorporated.

Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin tin. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until the tops of the muffins are golden brown and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

MY SPIN: Everyone knows I love cinnamon, so my ½ tsp was more like 1 tsp.

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!
