Instructions

This recipe is made using a Cuisinart sm-55 stand in mixer on # 6 speed and paddle. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup light brown sugar with 1/4 cup yellow fat free egg beaters in mixer for a full five minutes Next add 1-2 drops of vanilla extract (less than 1/8 teaspoon) and 2-3 drops rum extract (about an 1/8 teaspoon) or according to taste. Mix again for 1 minute w/mixer. Next mash one very large ripen banana on a plate and then add to the wet mixture and mix again for 1 minute. Next add about 1/4 cup canola oil to wet mixture and mix again for 1 minute. In a separate bowl, combine: 1/2 cup all purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, small pinch of salt (according to taste), and a nice pinch of cinnamon (according to taste). Now gently mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients (you may lower speed to 4 if you like) for at least 2-3 minutes. Lastly add 1 tbsp of plain fat free yogurt. Now take a small taste to see if you need to add more rum extract or a drop more of vanilla. If taste is well balanced then you are ready to bake. Spoon into 6 muffins. Sprinkle each muffin top generously with planters chipped pecans (optional). Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick come out clean and tops are golden brown.
