I think that if you are being conscience of what you are eating, and you are trying to lose weight, and you are a health freak, then muffins aren't probably something that would be recommended for a special treat. BUT. But, what if you found a healthy, low fat, low sugar, and super tasty muffin recipe? Well? Would you try it?
Go on. Give it a try.
Not your typical Muffin
3 cups of flour - whole wheat, a mix of whole wheat and all purpose - or any type of flour you desire
3 tbsp of baking powder
1 1/2 cups of apple sauce*
1 cup of non-fat greek yogurt - I love the Astro brand
Pinch of salt
*Apple sauce: Peeled, cored and cubed apples. Add to a pot, cover with water. Boil on medium heat for about an hour. Mash with a potato masher and then use a hand blender or blender to puree. You can add cinnamon and cloves for a bit of flavour - or just leave as is. Deelish.
Apple Cinnamon Muffins
2 cups of apple - peeled and cubed into small pieces
1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
Lemon Blueberry Coconut
Zest of one lemon
2 cups of frozen blueberries
1 cup of unsweetened coconut - see if you can find the thick organic kind - it's so worth it
Pre-heat the oven to 350.
In a large bowl mix all of the dry ingredients with the apple sauce and yogurt. Mix well.
If you want to make both flavours, divide the batter in half - and separate into two bowls. Mix all together - and that's it.
Using a light cooking spray - spray the muffin tins. If using large muffin tins - you have enough batter for 12 muffins. Regular size tins - at least 18 muffins.
Bake at 350 for 37-42 minutes.
They are fresh, they are sweet from the natural flavours, they are super moist, they are good for you, and best of all - they are DEELISH!
