Sugar Free Banana Muffins

So many months ago I mentioned I wanted to find a banana muffin recipe that had less sugar in it and I finally got to it!

Using applesauce to replace the sugar cuts many of the calories, fat and carbohydrates out, which is a huge bonus. Especially when you don’t have to sacrifice taste (which these are still full of)!

Sugar Free Banana Muffins

Adapted from my original Banana Muffin recipe.

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • 1 cup unsweetend applesauce
  • 2 flax eggs (1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp warm water= 1 flax egg)
  • 2 large bananas (1 cup mashed)
  • 2 cups spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, mash the bananas until their are no chunks left.

In a large bowl, mix the butter and flax eggs together until smooth.

Add the mashed banana and applesauce to the butter/flax egg mixture and stir until smooth.

Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and vanilla extract and mix until combined.

Pour into muffin tins and bake for 15-20 minutes.

Muffins will be a light golden brown when ready.

This recipe makes about 18-20 medium-sized muffins.

  1. Not to sound strange, but I would love to try them. Often I find recipes for muffins and/or cakes with bananas and they look and sound delicious, but when I make them, I never care very much for them. That’s why I have to stick with using bananas in ice creams and non-cooking/baking desserts…
