My muffin of the week is a Banana Applesauce Muffin. I chose not to use oil in my recipe once again. The muffins were just as moist as they would be with oil. Substitutes for oil include applesauce, bananas, prune puree and greek yogurt.


1 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 cup spelt light flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2 organic large eggs

1/3 cup honey

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/4 cup water

3 – 4 mashed bananas


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray a 12 cup muffin tray or use silicone cups. In a bowl mix flours, baking powder, sea salt and cinnamon. In a separate bowl beat together honey and unsweetened applesauce. Add one eggs at a time and beat until combined. Now add 1/2 the flour mixture and then add 1/2 the water. Repeat process until completely mixed together. Mix mashed bananas into the batter. Scoop mixture into muffin cups and bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack for another 10 minutes. Enjoy!
