    If you don’t like raisins could I use cranberries instead?

    I’m wondering if I can substitute unsweetened applesauce in your muffin recipes for the banana – I do not like banana baked into anything – I loathe banana bread – any thoughts!

      Hi, I alwasy suggest people just go ahead and try it, a lot of my recipes call for both, just less apple sauce, so I would think it will be ok..

      Hi there, you can try, I have only baked in a mini muffin tray, I would just check them at the same time and then add more time if need be

      Do you mean a sweetener? You could opt to leave it out

    Hi! In this recipe, are you using unsweetened almond milk? Do the bananas need to be ripe? Lastly, does it matter if I use quick oats or old-fashioned? I love your recipes!!! Your food ideas look delicious but within daily nutrition allowances. I’m definitely giving them a try. Tonight, I’m making your french onion chicken. TU!

      HI Lisa, yes I always use unsweetened, Yes to ripe banana’s, they work best, and any oats should be fine, mine are quick oats πŸ™‚ I hope you continue to enjoy the recipes πŸ™‚

      Sorry not too sure, you would need to do the math based on how many you make

    I love your recipes. One question though if I leave out the almonds and coconut could you tell me how many calories they would be?

      Hi Melissa, glad you are enjoying the recipes, sorry I’m not too sure, I only built the recipe as per ingredient list, maybe you could build it on my fitness pal leaving those things out and it will give you all the nutri info

    I have a question about using bananas. I thought I read that the only way a banana is zero points is if you eat it whole. If you use it in smoothies or baked goods, it’s 5 points per banana. Any thoughts? Thanks so much!

      Before smart points came out they did have you count for banana’s in recipes then they did some changes when old smart points came out and said fruit in recipes did not count, I personally say do what works best for you, If you don’t count it and it works and you are losing then stick with it, but if you feel it is keeeping you from losing (or maintaining) then start counting for it, I’m not a 100% by the book girl, I do what works best for me and my body πŸ™‚
