What ingredients do I need to make these Weight Watchers Strawberry Banana Muffins?

  • All purpose flour-If you are looking for a gluten free option- you can use a gluten-free flour. If you are looking for a low carb option, you can use Almond flour. Another otpion would be using Kodiak Pancake Buttermilk Mix for added protein. Keep in mind the point value may vary depending on the brand of flour or ingredients you use. I like use Gold Medal all purpose flour for this particular recipe. 
  • Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Large bananas, mashed. Be sure to use very ripe bananas. The more ripe the bananas are the sweeter and more flavorful the muffins will be
  • Eggs- you can use egg whites or whole eggs
  • Almond milk -or skim milk, unsweetened coconut or soy
  • Zero point brown sugar substitute-I use Lakanto Monkfruit Golden Sweetener
  • Zero point white granulated sugar substitute– I use Lakanto Monkfruit Classic Sweetener
  • Unsweetened applesauce 
  • Vanilla extract
  • Strawberries-finely chopped

 

What sweetener do I use?

I use Lakanto Classic Monkfuit Sweetener and Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener in my baking recipes. The Classic is a zero point white granulated sugar substitute and the the Golden is a zero point brown sugar substitute.  Lakanto MonkFruit Sweetener is a zero glycemic, zero calorie and all natural sugar substitute. It is by far the best tasting sugar alternative and has zero aftertaste or gritty texture like some of the sugar alternatives have. It has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar-so if you were to use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the measurement that would be equal to real sugar. If you use a different sugar alternative you’ll want to check the point value on the brand you use. They can vary in points. 

TASTES just like sugar | Zero net carbs, Zero calorie, Zero glycemic Sweetener

1:1 SUGAR REPLACEMENT | Lakanto has a perfect mix of monkfruit and erythritol to match the sweetness of sugar and maintain your baking and cooking needs

It’s WW FRIENDLY,  Keto, Diabetic, Candida, Paleo, Vegan, Low Carb, Low Sugar, NON-GMO, and All Natural

How do I make these Weight Watchers Strawberry Banana Muffins?

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with non stick cooking spray or line 12 muffin cups with paper or foil liners. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well combined.

In a separate bowl whisk together the mashed bananas, eggs, unsweetened almond milk, white and brown sugar sweetener, unsweetened applesauce, and vanilla.  

Add the wet ingredients to the flour and mix until just combined

Be careful DO NOT over mix the batter-otherwise the texture and taste will be completely off.

Then fold in the chopped strawberries, mixing until well combined. 

Evenly distribute batter into 12 muffin cups filling. 

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until an inserted knife or toothpick comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and let them sit in the pan for about 5 minutes before removing and letting cool on a wire rack.

Storing leftovers: let the muffins cool completely before storing. Store muffins in an airtight container and place a paper towel over the top of the muffins. The paper towels will soak up the moisture. Store on the counter for up to two days, up to a week in the fridge, or freeze for up to 2 months.

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 2 eggs or 4 egg whites

  • 3 Tbsp zero point white granulated sugar sweetener- I use Lakanto Classic Sweetener
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce

  • 1/2 cup strawberries, finely chopped

I’m looking forward to making these delicious looking muffins, but have a question: I have frozen banana chunks that I’d like to use. Approximately how many cups would two large bananas be?

Hi Viki

Thanks for your comment. I have not tried making these with frozen banana chunks-I would recommend thawing them out prior to using them. I would say 1 large banana is equivalent to 1 cup.

Thanks so much!

Made these strawberry muffins and they are really delicious! Super easy to make. Strawberries are now coming in at farmers markets and I plan on making more to freeze.

I woke up to this recipe in my inbox and just had to make it! Super tasty and moist. I didn’t have the alternative to regular sugar and brown sugar, and when using the regular options it’s still only 3pts on green which I’m totally okay with!

Will certainly make this recipe again!
