Bananas rarely get too ripe in our house, but when they do, I make a point of peeling them and putting them in a freezer bag in the freezer. They are ideal for making low point muffins like these! Just grab a few out, and pop into a bowl to thaw!
Note: When I make muffins, I would normally use my silicone muffin pans. When making this batch, I had those in use already, so used regular muffin pans and cupcake liners. These do make full-sized muffins.

How to Freeze Muffins for Later
One of my favorite things about making muffins is that they are ideal for making in super large batches and freezing. In fact, I can spend an hour in the kitchen on the weekend and make 4-5 different types of muffins that are low in points.
After the muffins have been out of the oven and allowed to cool, I prefer placing them in a single layer in a large Ziploc bag. A gallon sized freezer bag is ideal for this, and can easily be marked with the date and type of muffin. To freeze, I place them flat on the shelf on my freezer for 1-2 hours, they can easily slide them into the door or in a drawer in my freezer as needed and they won't get smashed.
I am also a fan of the Global Sustain reusable freezer bags. If you prefer to use more sustainable options, this is a great investment for your kitchen.
They are good for 3-4 months in the freezer. To thaw, just remove from the freezer and leave in the refrigerator overnight. They can be eaten cold or heated for 30-45 seconds in the microwave.

Are these the mini muffin size?
They are regular muffins
I made these using Swerve brown sugar and PB2 to bring down the points. However, I questioned 1 tablespoon of vanilla and should have followed my instinct. Way too much. I think this is possibly a misprint? Should I be 1 teaspoon?
We like the stronger vanilla flavor. Everyone is different 🙂
I was only able to get 10 muffins out of the recipe!
The recipe typically makes 12 muffins. They are not overflowing or large, but regular-sized muffins. If you used smaller bananas, it could be a smaller amount of batter.
I only got 10 muffins as well and used 3 large bananas.
When I build this in the recipe builder, I get 3 points per muffin if making 12 muffins. How are you getting 2? 11 points for flour, 23 points for brown sugar, and I am using PB2 for 1 point.
These were great but next time I will use less vanilla. Thanks for the new addition to my breakfast options!!
Servings says 18...should I be able to get 12 or 18 muffins?
