Ok.. so the worst part about dieting is finding the right kind of food to eat. I came across an awsome cookbook called "The Sugar Solutions Cookbook" from Prevention magazine. Every recipe I have tried has turned out delicious...
Peanut Butter and Banana Streusel Muffins:
3 tablespoons whole grain pastry flour
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon honey
2 cups whole grain pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup pureed ripe banana (about 1 med. banana)
1/2 cup unsweetened Applesauce
1/3 cup peanut butter (organic is the best)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup 1% milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 400' F . Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.
To make streusel: In a small bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, butter and honey with a spoon until the mixture forms wet crumbs.
To make the muffins: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt until combined. In a large bowl, whisk together the banana, applesauce, peanut butter, sugar and egg until blended. Whisk the milk and vanilla into the banana mixture until combined.
Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture with a spoon, just until blended. Do not overmix. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, devide evenly. Crumbe the streusel mixture on top of the muffin batter, dividing evenly.
Bake for 16 to 18 minutes, or until wooden pick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
