Healthy, quick breakfasts are easy.
Today I bring you moist, soft strawberry banana muffins that are completely FAT FREE and only 90 calories each. And yet, they are SO flavorful. The secret: mashed bananas, applesauce, and fresh sweet strawberries.
I love the portion control of muffins. Grabbing a couple while I’m out the door to the office is just so much easier than taking the time to pour cereal and milk.
I’m not even sure how something fat free could taste so flavorful, but these truly do!
Moist, soft strawberry banana muffins that are completely fat free and only 90 calories each.

- 1 egg white, beaten
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup diced strawberries

- In a large bowl, stir to combine the flour, sugars, baking soda, & cinnamon. Slice the banana in half and mash 1st half with a fork and cut 2nd half into thin slices (set these aside). Add the mashed banana to the dry ingredients and stir. Add the applesauce, beaten egg white, vanilla and stir until *just* combined. Do NOT overmix.
