I Think I Found the ONE!

I belong to a group called Spark People. It's a free service. I log in, put my fitness accomplishments on there and my daily intake log. It's a great site. Lots of information, articles, fitness information and motivational words. Oh, yes, and recipes.

That is where I found this beauty. Peanut Butter Muffins, can you believe it, a rich peanutty taste for only 134 calories per muffin. Oh, muffin, where have you been all my life? I am so glad I have found you. People I think my search for the perfect muffin is over. Between this and my oatmeal muffin, I am set.

Peanut Butter Muffins
Spark People Recipe

1/2 c nonfat milk*
1/2 c pureed banana (about 1 banana)
1 c whole wheat flour
1 egg white
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1/4 c brown sugar

Mix peanut butter, banana, and sugar in large bowl. Add milk and egg white, mix. Add all dry ingredients and mix. Spoon into muffin tin and bake for 18-20 minutes til golden.

Number of Servings: 12
* I used milk instead of yogurt because the batter seemed really thick.

I think you did do it Lori!! This sounds great!! I joined a similar site where you log in all you food for the day and it tells you what you have left or if you went over, I love it!!

I am so glad you liked them Kat. So easy and tastey.

Welcome Elle.

Bunny-I checked out that one you talked about Bunny. It seems like a good one as well. Its nice that there are a bunch of free ones instead of just the WW, Biggest Loser and Bob Greene site taht use to be available.
