Banana Cinnamon Microwave Muffins

Lately I am obsessed with these  Microwave Muffins .  They are such a filling treat for only 2 P+ and there are so many fun and tasty ways to make them.  And,  I have done some experimenting and found they can be made with spelt, whole wheat or even white flours.

Normally I would make them 2 at a time but today I decided to make just one for me, as The Captain was otherwise occupied with a huge, gooey, fattening cinnamon roll...  so I halved the basic ingredients, and then used even less mashed banana. 

Why?  Well, bananas have more calories than pumpkin or applesauce, which are what I have used when making other versions of these muffins.  So, to keep the P+ count to 2, I reduced the amount of mashed banana to 1/8 cup in this individual serving.  It was plenty and quite tasty!

  1. I love microwave muffins! Do you own an silicone muffin cups? I bought some a long time ago when I didn't have an oven, and they made cute little muffin shapes even in the microwave. I think you can purchase just one as well, which is perfect!

  2. I have never tried microwave muffins. It's now on my list of things to do soon.
