Banana-nut Orange Marmalade Muffins

I bought a jar of orange marmalade for a recipe a while back.  After using half the jar, the rest of the marmalade sat in the fridge and was forgotten about  for a couple of weeks.  So I came up with these reduced fat (no oil used) banana, nut and orange marmalade muffins to use up the end of the bottle.  I used the marmalade in both the muffin and the glaze... that really gave these a nice citrus flavor.  I shared some with my mother and she asked me to make another batch of these muffins for her.  I guess I'll be buying another jar of  orange marmalade and I'll be back to having half a jar of marmalade in my fridge again.


Dry Muffin Batter Ingredients:
1 and 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Wet Muffin Batter Ingredients:
3 ripe bananas mashed
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup apple sauce
1/3 cup orange marmalade
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Marmalade Glaze:
1/3 cup marmalade
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbs orange juice or water to mix

Sift dry ingredients together.  Mash banana well and then mix wet ingredients until well combined.  Stir in dry ingredients gently (careful not to over mixing).  
Place in well greased or paper lined muffin pan.  Bake at 375 degrees for 18-22 minutes (or until done).  All ow muffins to cool down a little before applying glaze.  Enjoy.     Yields 12 large muffins    
Tip:  I used an ice cream scoop to easily fill the muffin pan and get the same portion in each hole.

  9. Ha! I had to laugh when I read you were buying more. I always seem to make something really good to use up an ingredient only to buy it again because the recipe was delicious. I guess there are worst things.
