Skinny Banana Raspberry Muffins - easy and delicious!

I have another fun recipe for you guys and this one will be perfect to save for Back to School time.  I love muffins as a quick grab n go breakfast or mid morning snack and for this one I tried to really cut back on the white sugar and the butter.

So I hope you try these- I made these with bananas and raspberries but you can also just make them with plain banana (add a little extra banana to the batter) or use banana and blueberries or banana and blackberries… whatever you have on hand would be perfect!

Note this is not a traditional bakery style muffin.  Those types of muffins are heavenly but absolutely loaded with fat and calories.  This muffin is skinny- very light in sugar and butter.  So it is one you can grab without all the guilt but it won’t have the richness that a super buttery and sugary muffin would have.

My 6 year old loves raspberries and I recently found out they have very little sugar so I thought they would be perfect with the recipe.

I love the added Greek Yogurt too for a kick of protein.  I use plain Stonyfield Greek Yogurt.

Wondering how many calories the raspberry yogurt muffins have when baked 18 to the recipe?
