Blueberry Muffins

Top Review by Anne La Quebecoise

Good tasting and healthy muffins. Not very sweet, though, so be prepared. I used 4 egg whites instead of the 2 eggs, added 1 tsp vanilla extract and a pinch of salt and used 1 1/2 cup (frozen, unthawed) blueberries. I made 12 very big muffins (baking them for 25 minutes was fine). This is a good basic recipe for bran muffins ; I think you should be able to substitute other fruits for the blueberries, especially dried fruits : dates, prunes, raisins... (or choc chips for a little treat!). And since dried fruits are sweeter than fresh, this could be a great healthy way to make the muffins sweeter. Thanks for posting, Dancer^!
