Every Sunday, I face the same dilemma: What can I do with all of these over-ripe bananas? Sunday’s also the day my daughter and I play around with our latest fascination — baking healthy muffins. Well, this recipe tackled both those conundrums.
When searching for muffin recipes, I look for options that include fresh fruit, a dairy source and, most importantly, don’t resort to using butter. These muffins, originally from BBC Good Food, called for buttermilk, which I traded for low-fat, plain yogurt. The switch means they only keep for a couple days, but they don’t last that long anyway! I also swapped in some whole-wheat flour and added honey instead of all that brown sugar.
My daughter suggests new fruits to experiment with each time. This last time around we added in fresh blueberries and strawberries with great success. – Narissa Wild
