Gingerbread banana yogurt muffins

November 20, 2016

I decided to do another spin on my famous 2 smart point yogurt muffins in honor of the holidays approaching. These gingerbread banana yogurt muffins are delicious! They make a great grab and go breakfast or a nice afternoon treat, just 2 smart points each, now that’s a good day in my books! They don’t have an overpowering gingerbread taste so if you normally don’t eat that flavor I would highly suggest you still try them out, my friend who claimed to hate gingerbread cookies loved these muffins.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Go bake some up today, you won’t be disappointed.

    These were good but they are actually 3 SP, not 2

      Glad you enjoyed them Donna, please know that products vary in points, for what I used they are 2SP, perhaps you used a different product that took the point value up to 3

    Greetings !
    I stumbled across your site via Facebook recommendation, and I have these muffins (Gingerbread banana) as I write this. I had a question, but not about the muffins… mentioned (in other recipes) that you don’t use PB2. Any particular reason why not ? I’m curious, that’s all. I will admit that I find PB2 to have a bit of an aftertaste, but when I throw it in a low point PB Banana Smoothie, the aftertaste disappears ! Loving your recipes, this will help fulfill my *need* to bake on this weight loss program ?.

      Hi Lindsay, glad you found me ๐Ÿ™‚ and I hope you enjoyed the muffins! So truth be told I am a peanut butter snob lol, it’s Kraft (Canadian brand) or nothing for me, honestly powdered PB freaks me out just a little lol ๐Ÿ˜‰ There are some things to me just not worth saving points on, and PB happens to be one of those ๐Ÿ™‚

    Just had one of these warm out of the oven. Oh…my…. GOODNESS !! You’re my new best friend. They taste like a lighter version of my Nana’s gingerbread ???. Even my husband loves them, and he’s skeptical about anything made “healthier or lighter”. Well done !! And thank you !!

    I’m drooling thinking about these. Curious about why the nutritional info does not include the banana? Thanks!

      Hi, because on WW fruit in recipes don’t count, meaning have no point value, so in order not to confuse people I just leave it out when figuring out nutritional info, if I put it in then the numbers inputted into the calculator would not give the right point value, hope that makes sense, I might change my ways of doing it in the new year..

    Made these this weekend. Absolutely delicious, even though I omitted the ginger since I didn’t have any on hand. I used SKYR icelandic style yogurt from PC instead of greek yogurt. They smelled absolutely heavenly and very seasonally appropriate! For anyone wondering, they don’t have exactly the same texture as a muffin with the traditional oil and sugar but for 2 Sp you can’t beat it!! Very healthy and easy to grab and go.

      Thanks Rachel, so glad you enjoyed them.. I too use the Skyr yogurt, love it!! My muffins and loaves are definitely different texture and might take some getting use to, but like you said for the point value it’s a win win ๐Ÿ™‚

    My kids love these! And I love being able to have a full sized muffin for only 2 points. I’ve been making them with white whole wheat flour because that’s what I had on hand and they still turned out great.

    These look amazing and I think I’m going to attempt them this week. I saw the comment about the whole wheat flour, so I may try this. But I’m curious about the ginger. If you were to use fresh ginger would the measurement be the same?

      I am not too sure on that one, gingerbread kinda needs the molasses in my opinion ..
