I adore muffins, but they can be sugar and calorie disasters. My days of indulging in jumbo 400 to 500 calorie muffins are long gone. These days, I love collecting recipes for skinnier healthier muffin recipes and tips for making healthy muffins from scratch - like these healthy blueberry muffin recipes - so I always have one at the ready when I want it.
Oatmeal and bananas are two favorite healthy muffin and quick bread ingredients. And healthy banana muffins and healthy low fat banana bread are classics that I come back to again and again, especially when I have leftover bananas to use up.
Here’s a roundup of banana oatmeal muffin and quick bread recipes from around the Web. I’ve included calorie information and calculated their Weight Watchers PointsPlus Values too. Enjoy!
