I made these using cup for cup gluten free all-purpose mix and these turned out perfectly delicious. Great banana muffins, you will never know they are low-fat.

Don't let "Low Fat" keep you from trying these tasty treats...no one will ever know! They are moist and intensity of the banana flavor shines through. The only change I made was to substitute the sugars with just 1/2 cup Splenda brown sugar. Thank you for posting Kitten! I'll be adding these to my healthy muffin freezer stash.
