Prune is a fruit with a truly undeserved bad reputation. True, its high fiber content makes it a good choice if you need it. But prunes are not just about that! They are also packed with antioxydants and, while they do taste sweet, their low glycemic index makes them a fantastic choice if you are watching your blood sugar levels.?

The honey, bananas and walnuts are perfect complements to the prunes in these incredibly healthy muffins. And did I mention that there is absolutely NO OIL OR BUTTER in this recipe?? By the way, they are only 138 calories per muffin so don’t feel bad if you eat more than one ?!

This recipe is really easy and it’s all made in one single bowl, which means of course less cleaning, more enjoying!?
