Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin tin with non-stick baking spray.

Very tasty muffins, and yes they are a good size. Not sure how you got them to be 2 points though??! Is this using the old WW points system? I calculated the recipe using the new PointsPlus system, and they came out at 4 points each!

Yes, Point calculation is old Points, not Points Plus.

About

A couple of days ago, I posted a Banana Nut Muffin recipe that I said was 3 points, and it was. But I have wanted to repost the improved version of that, because I can actually get it down to 2 points and its soooo good. Too good not to share. So here goes.

2 Point Banana Muffins

1/2 cup(s) Egg Beaters
1/3 cup(s) packed brown sugar
1/2 cup(s) light sour cream
1/2 cup(s) fat-free skim milk

3 large very ripe banana(s)
3/4 cup(s) whole wheat flour
1 cup(s) all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp table salt

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg, or more to your taste

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin tin with non- stick baking spray.
2. In a large bowl, beat egg beaters and sugar until fluffy about 5 minutes. Beat in sour cream, milk
and vanilla.
3. Mash bananas and add to mixture.
4. In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Add to banana mixture, mixing just until blended.
6. Pour batter into prepared muffin tin. I use ice cream scoop to get equal measure and make less
mess.
7. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin (check
a couple) comes out clean, about 30-35 minutes.
8. Turn out onto a wire rack and let cool.
