Since starting Weight Watchers (WW), I have become obsessed with finding WW friendly recipes for all of my favorite things. Being able to make them gluten free too, is an added bonus! Banana muffins are my kids favorite. I swear they make a pact with each other to NOT eat the bananas I buy, just so I then have bananas ripe enough to make muffins. I’m not joking! After starting WW, I wanted to be able to still enjoy a few of my favorites, so I came up with this recipe for gluten free blueberry banana muffins!

WW Friendly Blueberry Banana Muffins
If you are following WW’s, you are probably as excited about these FULL SIZE, WW friendly muffins, as I am! They are just 6 points for a full size muffin! My plan was to make them as mini muffins, but I was completely out of mini muffin wrappers. As mini muffins, they would be even less points!
Blueberry Banana Muffins
Delicious recipe for blueberry banana muffins. They are gluten free (though you can make them with regular flour) and WW friendly!
- 1/2 Cup Butter softened
- 1 Cup Stevia in the Raw
- 2 Large Eggs
- 1 Cup Bananas mashed
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 TBSP Milk
- 2 Cups Gluten Free Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 1/2 Cups Fresh Blueberries
In a large bowl, combine the softened butter and stevia. Mix thoroughly. Add in the eggs one at a time and mix well.
Next add your mashed bananas, milk and vanilla extract. Mix completely. Next, add in your dry ingredients. Be sure to mix this well.
Fold in the blueberries. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill for about 1 hour.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and prepare your muffin tin with liners. Fill each muffin tin completely (trust me). I like using one of these batter spoons.
Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Then lower the temp to 350 degrees and bake for 10-12 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
*If you would like to make these with regular flour, go ahead! Use the exact same amount of regular flour.
These muffins are delicious! Like I said, banana muffins are a favorite in our house, but these blueberry banana muffins are amazing! The blueberries add a tartness to the muffin that is so good! I used Stevia in this recipe. Originally, my plan was to use Swerve, but I could not find it in the store. I’ve heard that Swerve is the best zero calorie sugar sweetener. I’d love to find out! I’ll have to order some on Amazon!
As with any recipe that you are calculating points or macros, while these came out to be 6 points per muffin based on the ingredients I used, you will want to add the recipe to your WW recipe builder with the specific ingredients you use to make sure the points work out the same! Enjoy the blueberry banana muffins!
