Banana Apple Muffins (low fat)

As I did post before that muffins come up with the score that healthier food than cupcakes... here is the prove. This recipe use low amount of sugar, the adding sweetness comes from the natural goodness of bananas and apple.. To give a deeper color and flavor use brown sugar instead of caster sugar. I added a tablespoon of canola anyway to prevent dough from sticking to paper.
Hello ?? It's still low fat ... *defending...* even zero !

I baked this muffins at night and enjoying in the morning for breakfast. The flavour develops while you sleeping and dreaming about them ^_~ *smile and wink...* well seriously... !
