It might be hard to believe but our Banana Orange Honey Muffins are made without sugar and without eggs!
We try to use less white sugar and find suitable replacements. Honey or maple syrup are our go to when replacing white sugar and we almost always have success.
To make these muffins I added leftover orange honey and mashed banana instead of sugar. They turned out really good with just a hint of orange, and now I’m not so afraid to replace sugar with honey in other recipes!
No worries if you don’t have honey or maple syrup on hand, use 1/2 cup white sugar in replace of the honey. Adding orange zest and juice adds to the flavour especially if you do not have orange honey, which I usually do not!
Let me know what you think of these muffins in the comments if you make them. They are super moist, tasty and great for snacks and breakfast!
