Nutella Frosted Choco-nana Muffcakes

Craving a high point chocolate cupcake? Make these 2 point frosted muffcakes instead, they’ll hit the spot. Then give them away so you don’t polish them off.

  • 1 1/4 C flour
  • 3/4 C whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 C splenda baking blends
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/3 C unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 T dry buttermilk powder
  • 3 smashed bananas (between 1 and 1 1/2 cups smashed)
  • 1/2 C applesauce
  • 1/4 C plain fat-free yogurt
  • 3/4 C water
  • Optional- Nutella (about 1/2 teaspoon per muffcake, just enough to make a thin layer on the top)
  1. Sift flour, cocoa, buttermilk powder, and baking soda together. It is VERY important to sift because it will make the texture very chewy if you don’t.
  2. Mix together bananas, applesauce, yogurt, and water.
  3. Gently stir in the flour mixture to the banana mixture. Be careful to not over mix, but don’t leave big lumps.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees; fill cupcake tins with muffcake batter.
  5. Bake for 8-12 minutes. Muffcakes will be done when they spring when you touch them. 
  6. Cool (if you can wait that long.) Frost with a thin layer of nutella. 

Makes about 24 (you can get more but it won’t change the points value)

Points per Serving: 2 (WW PointsPlus:2)

Be careful: If you’re in a plateau with your weight loss, make sure you are counting points accurately, like with these cupcakes – If you eat 2, it goes to 5 points (5 WW PointsPlus)

But who cares! Muffcakes! Yum! Point Values includes the nutella frosting! Enjoy!
