We love our recipe linky. Sharing recipes and healthy meal solutions for our kids is one of our Momtrends' missions. This week in honor of Momtrends teaming up with Del Monte bananas, we're featuring a Low-calorie Banana Muffin recipe that's ideal for tucking into lunch boxes or for an afterschool treat.
Why Bananas? Here are some quick facts:
- Bananas contain all 8 amino acids which cannot be produced by our bodies & are an excellent source of fiber, potassium and vitamin C.
- Bananas are fat-, cholesterol- and sodium-free and provide an excellent source of vitamin B6
- 1 banana = about 110 calories plus 13% of your daily fiber and 13% of your daily potassium intake.
2 large and ripe Del Monte® bananas, cut into chunks
½ cup fat free yellow cake mix
½ cup old fashioned rolled oats
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 large egg
¼ cup nonfat milk
4 tbsp. golden raisins

Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine all ingredients except raisins in blender. Blend / pulse quickly just until mixed. Stir in raisins. Pour into 4 large (4 oz.) muffin cups or 8 regular muffin cups or 12 mini muffins (we love this size for packing in school lunches!) lined with paper or sprayed with cooking spray. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Green Tip: Skip the paper liners and opt for re-usable silicone mini cups!

Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did recently get paid to host a twitter chat with Del Monte and it was awesome. We loved the recipe so much we decided to share it.
