Today, I’m reviewing the Banana Nut Smart Muffins by the Smart Baking Company. The company has recently come out with a new line of products: Smart Muffins. I’ve had the smart cakes before which my girlfriend turned me onto. They’re pretty rad and a delicious snack. When the Smart Baking Company sent us some muffins to sample, I was pretty excited to try these. They’re a bit heftier than the smart cakes. And of course, I already did enjoy the Sesame Smart Buns. I also did a review on the Chocolate Chip Smart Muffins and the Pumpkin Spice Smart Muffins as well.
Banana Nut Ingredients: Proprietary Fiber Blend (Oat Fiber, Corn Fiber, Flax), Eggs, Pumpkin Puree, Erythritol, Whey Protein Isolate, Olive Oil, Walnuts, Pure Vanilla, Natural Banana Extract, Spices, Herbs, Salt, Cellulose Gum, Monk Fruit, Citric Acid
While I enjoyed the Pumpkin Muffin and the Chocolate Chip Muffin flavors, the banana nut I found pretty gross. While the consistency was fine, the banana extract was too much. The aftertaste was terrible and it tasted more like a banana chemical concoction than an actual banana nut muffin. It’s a shame too because I love banana nut bread and muffins and thought this would be my favorite out of the bunch. I think the company needs to tweak the recipe a bit to make this at the same level of the delicious pumpkin spice which I gave a 9.4 rating. This muffin, unfortunately, disappointed me greatly and I’m sad to say I have to give it a final score of 4.6.
