A nutritious low fat version of an old favorite, banana bread with apple tidbits for a natural sweetener.
  • 2 medium ripe bananas
  • 1 medium ripe sweet apple (I used Golden Delicious)
  • 2 cups sifted all purpose flour
  • ½ cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 Cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Mix the brown sugar and rolled oats together in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Sift flour into mixing bowl and stir in all the dry ingredients.
  4. Peel and mash the bananas into a separate bowl.
  5. Peel the apple, core and cut into tiny tidbits.
  6. Mix the apple and bananas together, stir well. Add in the dry ingredients along with the egg, nuts and milk. Stir the mixture well by hand for several minutes. Batter will be lumpy.
  7. Fill prepared muffin cups ⅔ full with batter and top with a sprinkling of the oats and brown sugar mixture.
  8. Bake for approximately 20 minutes. Oven temperatures vary. Muffins are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
