I decided to start Weight Watchers again - it's a very slow process. Started almost 20 weeks ago and only lost 10 pounds. But that's OK. I am hoping to lose another 5-10 but we will see. Decided to start baking some low-fat or WW desserts and see if they are any good!! But I will continue to bake the regular stuff too!! :)
Made Ww 2 Points - Frosted Banana Bread Muffins - they are delicious little muffins - only mistake I made is to make them on Sunday and when I brought them to the office on Monday... the frosting had melted and was all over the muffins!! :)
They are so cute!!
Ww 2 Points - Frosted Banana Bread Muffins (think I got the recipe from WW last year...)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil (used canola)
3/4 cup unpacked brown sugar
4 medium bananas or bananas, mashed (used 3 large)
2 teaspoons lemon peel, grated (added a bit more than that - love lemon!)
1 large egg
1 large egg white
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 cup buttermilk (used low-fat milk and lemon)
1/2 cup golden seedless raisins
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Coat 24 mini muffin tins with cooking spray.
Blend together oil and brown sugar.
Beat in bananas, lemon zest, egg and egg white.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
Gently stir half the flour mixture into banana mixture; stir in buttermilk, remaining flour mixture and raisins.
Divide batter among muffin pans.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Let cool in pans for 10 minutes before inverting onto a rack to cool completely.
To make frosting, blend powdered sugar and lemon juice together.
Drizzle over cooled muffins.
