Banana Bread Muffins

Today in Julie's kitchen: sugar free (honey sweetened) banana muffins. #100daysofrealfood

I made these the other week while I was still on my 40 days of no sugar regimen.  They are honey-sweetened so they are not overly sweet.  I put them all in individual ziplock bags and threw them in the freezer, they are a great grab-and-go breakfast, by the time I get to work they are thawed out, I just pop them in the microwave for a few seconds so they are nice and warm.  I adapted the recipe from the 100 Days of Real Food blog, so for the recipe stop by their website.  The only changes I made were that I used white flour since that’s what I had on hand, I used veggie oil because again that’s what I had on hand, I used Greek yogurt, and don’t do like me, I was out of regular salt so I used my Kosher salt.  Not the greatest idea.  If you know Kosher salt, it is bigger and flakier, and you can definitely taste specks of it throughout the muffins.

I am going to try and swap out honey and raw sugar for white, granulated sugar as often as I can when baking.  I actually enjoy the not-so-sweet taste more so than traditional banana bread.  Honestly since I’ve been back on sugar since Easter this past Sunday I feel grody and am thinking of going to a really low sugar diet.  After I eat the Reese’s PB Eggs that are in my freezer.  Night all!

    • They were great! And yes I’m loving the 100 Days of Real Food Blog. I’ve learned a TON about the junk that is in the food we eat. And thanks, I’ve been wanting to give the blog a little facelift for a while, I still have a few kinks I need to work out but I’m happy for now!
