These were wonderful muffins! Instead of peach preserves I blended canned peaches to put in the center and it turned out delicious! I think I'll be making these again soon! Made for Everyday is a holiday tag - eat a peach day August 22.
I was surprised at how soft these turned out with the wheat flour. I did the recipe as written, except I sprinkled nuts on the top of half of our muffins (to accomodate those who don't care for nuts). I used Simply Fruit apricot jam in the center. They were a hit!
A yummy muffin that is also healthy! Thats a winner in my book. I reversed the amount of flours using more whole wheat than white, used Splenda for the sugar, egg white only for the egg, Fat free sour cream and applesauce instead on oil. The only fat in mine is from the nuts and that is the healthy kind, my jam is no sugar added. Speaking of the nuts the directions don't say if they go into the batter or as a topping. I opted to add them into the batter. They didn't really rise to speak of but that's at least partly because I used more w.w. flour. The inside is light and fluffy. Thanks for a lovely baked yummy that can be so easily adapted to diabetic needs. Made for Photo Tag Game.
