I just made this recipe with some frozen blueberries and we all really liked it - even my boys who don't like blueberries. It comes from a church cookbook but I have changed it to suit my tastes. You could really substitute any fruit you wanted - it's a very versatile recipe.
- 1⁄4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 1⁄2 cups blueberries, frozen or fresh
- Combine all the ingredients, except the blueberries.
- Gently fold in the blueberries.
- If using frozen berries, don't thaw- the juices won't mix through the batter as much.
- If desired, sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar on top for a little extra sweetness.
- Put in muffin tins.
- Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
I found that the blueberries a rose to the top and did not stay well mixed in the batter. Batter is too thin. Also I have had to add additional 20 minutes for these to cook. But they still tasted good.
This recipe was very interesting. I tweaked it a little further by using an eggbeaters substitute instead of the egg. I also used half slenda - half sugar mixture. Also I added a 1/3 cup of homemade applesauce instead of a 1/4 cup. I also mixed my dry ingredients and my wet ingredients separately and then incorporated them together. I mixed the ingredients until they were just together. Try not to overmix the ingredients or they will create a tougher, denser muffin. Also, I added a cup of frozen blueberries instead of the recipes 1 1/2 cups. It would have been blueberry overkill. All in all while not the most exciting blueberry muffins in the world I wouldn't kick them off my plate. They are good for low fat.
Thank you so much!!! This recipe is not only low fat, but me and my whole family love them! Lately I've been less than thrilled with low fat foods, and this is not one of them! I've had one with every meal today and can't get enough! I added a tad less cinnamon and a little more apple sause and they came out great! Not too dense.
