Low Fat, Low in Saturated Fat, Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber, Very low in sodium, Low Sodium


Mix together
¼ cup applesauce
2 tablespoons preserves
lite, or fruit based jam
Beat in
1 each liquid egg substitute
replacer equal to 1 egg
Stir in
3 medium bananas
mashed very ripe
3 tablespoons soy milk
2 teaspoons vinegar
Sift together
2 cups whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons gluten flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt


Add dry ingredients to the batter, mixing well. Stir in ¼ cup raisins or date pieces (found in the bulk bins at some health food stores). Fill cupcake size muffin tins ¾ full. (Batter is very thick.) Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees, until top is brown and has a hard crust. Cool slightly, then remove from tins. Makes 12. This is a great recipe to double or triple, depending on how many ripe bananas you have.

These freeze beautifully and can be popped in the oven or toaster oven at 350℉ (180℃) for about 15 minutes to give them that fresh baked feel, if desired.

I use a nonstick muffin pan but I just picked up some cushionaire muffin tins and find the breads came out lighter now. I do NOT spray the tins with any Pam.
