Apple & Banana Muffin Recipe with Monk Fruit Sweetener #SweetenersUSA

Y’all know that I do not live in a bubble. I get out. Honestly I do! I read things, I try new things and yet I seem to miss so many things. For instance monk fruit; what? First, what the heck is MONK FRUIT!? It’s a all natural sweetener that has perks! Like gluten free & non-GMO, naturally rich in antioxidants. Great for cooking and baking. Safe for diabetics. NO aftertaste. NONE. Zip ZERO aftertaste. It’s delicious!! AND it’s ZERO calories.

Monk Fruit Sweetener from SweetenersUSA measures teaspoon to teaspoon, cup to cup like sugar.

It even LOOKS like sugar!

I’m impressed with the taste, it’s the perfect alternative to splenda, stevia, agave syrup, or sugar to sweeten, cook or bake with.  I am also thrilled that I can bake and cook with this sweetener. I NEED my sweets. I can not give up my goodies no matter how many pounds I need to lose. Me without my goodies is a very bad thing. It’s like coffee without it I am cranky and all around unpleasant to be around. (that sounded very mild… the truth is very bad. VERY bad!)

Sweeteners USA proprietary mixture of the highest and purest Monk Fruit Extract & NON-GMO Erythritol, is an all-natural zero calorie, zero glycemic sweetener with a rich taste of sugar. It’s kosher certified and gluten free! Modern research shows that Monk Fruit extract does not elevate blood sugar or insulin, making it a perfect sweetener for blood sugar and weight management. This naturally sweet product is extracted from the exotic monk fruit, which has been used by the ancient Chinese for medicinal purposes as well as a sweetener for centuries. Monk Fruit Sugar is completely safe for Diabetics with a GI of “0” and “0” calories. Monk Fruit is a delicious, healthy way to enjoy your favorite foods and beverages in a low calorie, natural way!

So I tried my hand at creating a recipe for some muffins. I had a banana that cried out to be used or tossed. So I give you:

Banana Apple  Muffins.  1 point muffins for us WW people.

  • ½ cup mashed ripe banana (1 banana)
  • ¼ cup skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup MONK FRUIT Sweetener
  • 1¾ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Combine the bananas, milk, butter, egg and coarsely chopped apple.
  3. Fold in remaining ingredients.
  4. Bake 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

I added a couple of thin sliced apple slices to the bottom of each muffin for added YUM. That was totally optional.

These were so moist and delicious! 100% a keeper in my book. Sweet enough that I don’t feel deprived and I only used a point a muffin! YUMMMM!

    I’ve never heard of Monk Fruit before… I have a sweet tooth but I am trying to cut back on sugar to help control my weight. This looks like a great alternative! 😀

    I’m diabetic, so I have tried foods with monk fruit as the sweetener. I haven’t tried baking with it though. I’ll look for it & give it a try.

    I’ve heard of it, but never tried it. Stevia tends to leave an unpleasant aftertaste.
