Low-Fat Banana Muffins Recipe

low fat banana muffins

For those with high cholesterol or watching their waistline, muffins are not usually a culinary option.

Containing more saturated fat than doughnuts, these baked goods are thought of as a ‘healthy’ breakfast treat, but really are one of the worst things to begin the day with.

Using the moisture of bananas and yogurt in lieu of oil creates a delicious and flavorful muffin with a minimal amount of fat content.
