Almost Non-Fat Banana Bread Muffins <t> Recipe
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp lite preserves or
1 fruit-based jam
1 egg replacer equal to 1 egg
1 (reconstituted to liquid)
2 to 3 mashed very ripe
3 tbsp soy milk
2 tsp white vinegar
2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp wheat gluten
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 pinch salt
Add dry ingredients to the batter, mixing well. Stir in 1/4 C
raisins or date pieces (found in the bulk bins at some health food
stores). Fill cupcake size muffin tins 3/4 full. (Batter is very
thick.) Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees, until top is brown and has a
hard crust. Cool slightly, then remove from tins. Makes 12. This is a
great recipe to double or triple, depending on how many ripe bananas
These freeze beautifully and can be popped in the oven or toaster
oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes to give them that fresh
baked feel, if desired.
I use a nonstick muffin pan but I just picked up some cushionaire
muffin tins and find the breads came out lighter now. I do NOT spray
the tins with any Pam.

Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Dietary fiber is important
Decreasing the carbs in your meals usually leads to fiber reduction also. Look out for low carb recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for breaded foods.
While you can sometimes buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using reduced carb bread. Simply toast the low carb bread in your oven on a sheet of baking paper. When it is well toasted, process it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Keep in a tupperware jar or container.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, rose hip puree and tomato ketchup)
These colorful healthy superfoods contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene believed by doctors play a key role in cancer prevention, specifically those cancers involving the stomach and lesophagus. Many are low in calories, so are ideal for including in your diet.
