Pumpkin-Muffins-2-760x819

I am typically not a fan of maple anything, I don’t use syrup on my pancakes and I just don’t really care for the taste of maple (shocking right being that I’m Canadian haha) Maple syrup, however is a great alternative for sweetening things up without using added sugars. These maple pecan banana muffins were a nice surprise for my taste buds.. not a strong maple flavor, just enough to add that pop of sweetness and what I love about these is there are no added sugars, just the maple syrup to sweeten them.  Makes 12 muffins at 3 smart points each on WW freestyle.

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp all spice
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 12 hole regular size muffin tin with some non stick spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk your eggs and add in milk, mashed banana, applesauce 2.5 Tbsp of maple syrup (leave other 1.5 aside for topping) Stir well.
  3. Mix in flour, baking powder, cinnamon and allspice.
  4. Pour batter into muffin tin, sprinkle your chopped pecans evenly over the 12 muffins then drizzle the remaining syrup over them using a small spoon.
  5. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until muffins are baked through.
  6. Let cool then using a knife scrape around edges to remove muffins.
  7. Store in fridge after day 1 and muffins will freeze well.
