Cinnamon sugar banana bread muffins

October 21, 2018

I love baking up muffins and I had some ripe bananas that were ready to be put to use, I also love cinnamon/sugar so I created these delicious banana bread cinnamon sugar muffins. The muffins themselves have a hint of sweetness but then when you add that sugar coating to the top you are left with one tasty sweet baked treat! Recipe makes 12 muffins at just 3 smart points each on WW freestyle, you can leave the topping off and they will be 2SP but I don’t see why anyone one would want to do that 😉 Happy baking!

    I just made these and ate a warm one, so delicious. I didn’t have light butter so I just spritzed the top with I can’t believe it’s not butter spray, then rolled in cinnamon sugar. That topping makes them so decadent tasting. I appreciate your real ingredient recipes. Thank you!

    I made these , but mine turned out very dense. Just wondering if you would know what I did wrong. They taste delicious, but a little too dense. Thanks.

      Hi Karen, sometimes some of my muffin recipes are denser than normal due to the ingredients used, that said these ones for me were not too dense, it is really hard for me to access what happened without being there sorry 🙁
