What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup lowfat buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free chocolate chips (optional)

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, beat margarine and sugar until creamy. Add egg and beat until light and fluffy. Mix in bananas, buttermilk, and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking soda, and salt, and beat just until moistened. Stir in zucchini and chocolate chips, if desired.
  3. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
