As much as I enjoyed those muffins, they were loaded with sugar and oil. To lighten them up, I've been making the muffins from the Engine 2 cookbook which could not be more simple.
You start with this:
And then after a couple of steps, you have this:
Makes 6 small muffins
7 ounce box bran muffin mix
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup water
Preheat oven to 375. Mix the ingredients together. Spoon the batter into a nonstick muffin tin. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
I usually add a handful of raisins and a 1/2 tsp vanilla. Sometimes I add 1 tsp Ener-G egg replacer mixed with 1 T water to make a taller muffin.
These are such a great post-gym snack or a perfect breakfast when you're in a hurry. I mean, it's a lot easier than eating a bowl of cereal in your car, right?
