Low Fat Banana Muffins

Banana in baking never fails. Till now, not even a single baking dish using banana went to the dust bin from my kitchen. because of this reason, I confidently bake any dish that calls for banana. If you remember, I have posted a lemon curd sponge recipe from weight waters cookbook that I picked from the nearest library. I have also bookmarked couple of recipes from that book including this banana muffins. The recipe given in that book was for 12 muffins and I halved it and baked only 6 muffins for me and the husband.

As usual, the result is super soft and spongy muffins with banana flavor. Now to the recipe.
Basic Information:
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20-25 minutes

2) Sift together the all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
3) In another bowl, mix banana, egg, brown sugar, oil, water and vanilla extract.
4) Beat well till all ingredients are properly incorporated.
5) Quickly, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Just mix to combine. Do not over mix.
6) Pour this lumpy consistency batter to the lined muffin tray equaly.
7) Bake it for 20-25 minutes. Mine was done in 20 minutes.
