Containing more saturated fat than doughnuts, these baked goods are thought of as a ‘healthy’ breakfast treat, but really are one of the worst things to begin the day with.

Using the moisture of bananas and yogurt in lieu of oil creates a delicious and flavorful muffin with a minimal amount of fat content.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper cups.

  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and sugar together in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, combine the bananas, canola oil, yogurt, egg and vanilla until smooth.

  3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture, stirring until just combined.

  4. Fill each cup ? full with the mixture. Sprinkle with the nuts, lightly pressing them in.

  5. Insert the baking pan into the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

  6. Remove and let cool.
