Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins
This is my first review! And its because this is the first recipe from this site that I have made numerous times, numerous ways and they ALWAYS come out good. Below Ive outlined my most recent attempt which was the best batch ive ever made.
Keep in mind, i eat these for breakfast and do not like them overly sweet, so the bananas plus strawberries in the batter provide enough sugar for my taste. Also, without any oil these are certainly not as moist as regular muffins. But if you have any familiarity with no-fat baking, you may be amazed at how nice the textures is.
MY CHANGES - 1 egg/1 egg white, all applesauce instead of oil, omitted sugar entirely, 1 cup white whole wheat flour/1 cup oat flour, loads of spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger (1 T each), and 1.5 cups fresh strawberries.
The result was a perfectly sweet, light, super hearty muffin! I had 2 for breakfast this morning and they were even better after resting overnight.
One sortof "duh" suggestion: dont pour this batter into cupcake liners! Or, should i say, dont do it if you omit fat entirely because they will stick and you will lose half the muffin every time you unwrap one!
