Banana-Orange Muffins

Banana-Orange Muffins Photo Yield: Serves 12. Each serving: 1 muffin.

Ingredients

Instructions

1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
3/4 cup (2) mashed ripe bananas
2 egg whites
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1-1/2 tsp grated orange peel
1 cup raw oatmeal
1/2 cup oat bran
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup raisins

Directions:
Heat oven to 400 °F. Lightly spray a nonstick, one-dozen muffin pan with cooking oil spray or line with muffin cups. In a large bowl, combine yogurt, bananas, egg whites, vegetable oil and orange peel. Stir well then add the rest of the ingredients. Mix until all is incorporated, but do not overmix. Scoop mix into muffin pan, dividing it between 12 muffins. Bake until muffins are firm in the center and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15-20 minutes. Allow to sit for a few minutes then remove from pan. Cool on a wire rack.

Tip: To prevent packing, make sure you pour the flour into the measuring cup; do not scoop the flour with the measuring cup or you will end up using too much flour.
