Low Carb Banana Muffins Recipe

I love banana muffins, but bananas aren't exactly on the low carb food list. I improvised my favorite banana bread recipe to create these moist, delicious muffins. I used my low carb baking mix for this recipe and only one small banana along with imitation banana extract. They are wonderful hot out of the oven with butter! And only 6.3 carbs each. You could reduce the carb count by using a different flour/meal combination.

Ingredients

Cost per serving $0.17 view details
  • 1-3/4 cup low carb baking mix
  • 1/3 cup granular Splenda
  • 1/3 cup Erythritol (or use all Splenda, just count the extra carbs)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 small banana mashed
  • 1/2-1 tsp imitation banana extract (to suit your own taste)
  • 1/3 cup butter or extra light olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl combine 1 cup of my low carb baking mix, sweetener, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add mashed banana and butter or oil and mix on low speed until well blended. Add eggs and remaining 3/4 cup of baking mix, beat on low speed again until well blended. Pour batter into a prepared 12 count muffin pan and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Let cool in the pan about 5 minutes then remove the muffins. Eat warm with butter or cool thoroughly and store in an airtight container. These are a big hit in our home!

  • I have made these muffins and I love them! Banana muffins was something I regularly made whenever our bananas became too ripe, but I hadn't made them for quite some time now that I'm watching my carbs. These are delicious and my husband likes them too!
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
