I went back to the drawing to work on the treasured banana muffins. I opted to cut the Splenda by 50%, eliminate salt, use red palm oil in lieu of butter, use egg whites, and spelt flour again.
Unlike blueberry trial # 4 which had a very thick batter with spelt flour, this batter was quite runny. They took an extra 2 minutes to cook through, and they do feel very moist, with a chewy consistency. These muffins did not rise very high.
Boyfriend Unit noted that this time, he can’t detect the Splenda aftertaste that was present in the 2nd blueberry trial. Perfect! These muffins clock in at:
I am quite pleased with these muffins, but not ready to post a recipe. I’m still looking into cutting the sodium so stay tuned.
