Hubby's Low Fat Yummy Dried Berry Muffins

"My husband has started creating his own wonderful low-fat recipes and this one is delish! Fabulous for breakfast. He actually uses just shy of 1/4 cup of applesauce, but I couldn't figure out how to note that!"

    These were quite tasty! I used dried cranberries, and some pecans. Also added a bit of cinnamon. Thanks!

    These are so good. If you're used to making low fat muffins you'll love them. I used frozen berries instead of dried and they turned out great. My favorite part is the honey.

    Yummy muffins...I particularly liked the mixture of the honey and wheat germ in the batter!! I used a combo of all-purpose and whole wheat flours and dried cherries. I will definitely make these again and use all sorts of other berry types but I really want to try them with chopped nuts next -(that's how much I like the nutty flavor of the batter...make the whole muffin just a honey nut treat...YUMMY!!) Thanks for sharing ladypit and Thanks to your Hubby too!!
    I feel kind of bad leaving a review because I made this recipe but had no berries! So...I used 1 tbsp cinn & vanilla to make it into a sweet wheat germ muffin! I used whole wheat flour & topped it with some cinn/Splenda for some fun. It really did come out tasting good with the healthy ingredients-so thank you!

    Turned out great. Only change I made was to use whole wheat pastry flour, which turned out nicely. I also used cranberries, but will try again using other mixed berries. Great recipe. Made exactly 12 muffins and the cook time was just right. Thanks!


Life without change is boring. And my life is never boring!! I don't know what plans have been made for us for the future, but I'm doing my best to enjoy the ride!
