Whole Wheat Banana Walnut Muffins

I have had a big bag of ripe bananas in my freezer for months now, just waiting for the time I felt like baking. I do not bake much, mostly because I will end up eating all of the sweet treats myself! These muffins, however, are a guilt-free delight. Well...almost. They do have sugar of course, but everything in moderation like I always say. Even with a little sugar these babies are great compared to your average muffin because I cut out most of the fat by using I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and non-fat Greek yogurt! By using whole wheat pastry flour you get a dose of the healthy grains as opposed to the simple carbs in white flour.

I was honestly surprised at how moist and delicious these came out! Gotta love low fat treats!

I was inspired by a recipe I found on Pinterest from Life's Simple Measures for Banana Bread Bars with Brown Butter Frosting. Oh em gee I wanted to make this version so badly, but I knew I would eat the whole pan so I opted for a healthier version. I think I'll make her version for the holidays! Check out her blog for some irresistible looking treats.

Slow Cooked Apricot Pork Roast

I am really loving my crock pot. It just makes things so easy, especially when there are literally not enough minutes in a day. I don't even have time to be writing this post, but I'm taking a much needed break from my CPA cram sessions this week to share this yummy fall recipe.
