Blueberry-Banana Muffins, the Low-Fat, Low-Sugar Way

Ummm, love freshly baked muffins and I am always on the quest for a great low-fat, low-sugar muffin.  These muffins are some of the best I’ve found.  They have less than 1 gram of fat and less than 9 grams of sugar with 20 grams of carbohydrates at 94 calories each.  

The muffins are even better the next day as the addition of the fruit makes them bake up very moist and light.  This is a great way to use up over-ripe bananas.  

Make them with the combination of fruits that you like, chopped strawberries would work well also.  This recipe could be made even healthier by using whole wheat flour and as the fruit makes them quite sweet, you may not want to add as much Splenda.   

Dispensing with the paper liners and spraying with a no-stick cooking spray would make them not quite as moist and add a crispier edging to them, if that is to your liking.  If you want to bake more of these muffins at one time, do not double the recipe; make them in 2 separate batches.   

For low-fat, low-sugar muffins, they pack a lot of flavor! 

Blueberry-Banana Muffins, the Low-Fat, Low-Sugar Way


1 cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 ¼ cups mashed bananas
1/3 cup Splenda
¼ cup fat-free flavored yogurt or non-fat sour cream (I used blueberry yogurt)
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla


Set oven at 350 degrees.
Spray 12 regular muffin cups with non-stick spray or line with paper liners.
In a large bow, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and blueberries.
In another bowl, beat bananas, Splenda, yogurt, egg and vanilla until just blended.  Stir into the dry blueberry mixture until combined.
Divide the mixture into muffin tins.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

They’re fruity good and easy to whip up!


  1. These are so-o-o good. Had some bananas I had to use up, so I checked for a recipe. Found this one. They smelled good while baking & tasted even better. Ate one warm & couldn't stop at just one. I used wheat flour-can't be too healthy. Love your site and the flashbacks to Mom T's recipes. Thanks, Pam.

  2. I modified the recipe bit and the result is great! Thank you so much for sharing!!

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
