When I landed on this recipe while surfing the web, I had to try it. I'm so glad it did. They are delicious. Tip I: The dough should be soft but not sticky. It took me two attempts to get that just right. Tip II: I posted the recipe as written. After, several batches, I don't press the dough into a rectangle anymore. I divide it into eight equal pieces and pat each piece into a 1/2" thick round. Then, turn each round in dish of cornmeal.
These are good, just not as moist as I was hoping for. The next time I make them, I'm going to try cutting the sugar back to 1/2 cup and using a 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple in place of the 2 Tbls. of butter to see if they would be moister that way. 1 muffin = 3 points as written. With the changes mentioned above, 1 muffin = 2 points.
This is a great and tasty muffin. Personaly i think they are best when they are frozen. From the "Breasts of Friends" cookbook-(my favorite!)
Tip:You can extend the season of grapes by freezing them in 1 1/2 cup batches and throwing them into the batter frozen.
sadly, i did not come up with the name but these are really great muffins all the same. this recipe is from my rapidly deteriorating goddess in the kitchen cookbook (by marjie lapanja) and i figured here would be a good place to keep this.
just a few notes: i make my own applesauce for this. just cut up a few apples, put them in a pot, add water and boil 'til saucey. i've found that a microplane is perfect for grating the carrots and, as for the fresh fruit, anything will work really. i like a combo of mango and crushed pineapple but pretty any non-citrus fruit is fine. prep time and cooking times are both estimated.
Great served fresh from the oven - split open and douse dangerously with butter.....naughty but very, VERY nice!! These also keep very well in an airtight tin or container and can be toasted next day or gently warmed through in a low oven. Ideal for freezing - will keep in freezer bags for up to 2 months. Great picnic fare - split them open and spread with garlic & chive soft cream cheese, (Boursin or Philadelphia type) or make cheese & ham scone sandwiches or even cucumber scone sandwiches!! The oats give them a great texture - I use fairly coarse porridge oats. This recipe is easily doubled for larger crowds or greedy people!!!
According to about.com, these pear muffins are a delightful Fall treat. Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg add a nice flavor. As always, these muffins are at their best warm from the oven, but they freeze well, too. I can't wait to try them on a crisp Autumn morning.
I found these online and am storing them here to try very soon. They look like they'd be fabulous with fresh blueberries! Plus each muffins contains only 137 calories and 2.9 grams of fat. I did change a couple of things to fit my dietary needs. If you use the soy milk these are dairy-free.
This recipe was originally posted by a Zaar member who is no longer active. When she left, this recipe went "up for adoption." Since I was a huge fan of Zenith and her recipes, I of COURSE leapt at the chance to adopt one of her wonderful healthy recipes. These have no added fat and will make a satisfying breakfast snack. Enjoy!
I was given this recipe by my sister-in-law who went to Weight Watchers. She advised that they were worth 1 point. I guess that all depends on the size we make the muffins. I make mine larger so I would think they would be 2 points. I find them quite tasty.
