    My husband says these are bland. I like them... you can always sprinkle some sugar on top.

  • Go onto www.sparkpeople.com. You can get a lot of really good healthy recipes off there. I had one for an apricot muffin but I lost it somewhere. I know I got it from that site though!

  • i have posted this on here before. they are really good. the recipe calls for brown sugar. i have not tried it yet, but i am wanting to do it with splenda brown sugar to make it healthier. but heres the recipe.
    for 1 doz large muffins:

    2/3 cup flour
    4 eggs
    1 cup brown sugar
    pecans- i usually add half of a bag of chopped pecans-or you can leave them out
    1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or just nutmeg, ginger, and/or cinammon-whatever you have)
    combine all ingredients in a bowl. batter will be pretty thick and gooey. fill muffin tins to the top with batter. they will not rise. bake for 18-20 minutes on about 350* (i usually do 20 min). make sure to wait until they cool to take them out of the tin, or they will stick (even if you spray the tins w/pam).
    they are kind of crunchy on the outside, but really moist, almost gooey inside. these are so so so good.....

  • 1 c all-purpose flour
    1 c whole wheat flour
    1/3 c sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tbsp baking powder
    Zest of one large lemon
    1 egg, beaten
    3/4 c fat-free (skim) milk
    1/3 c canola or almond oil
    1 c berries (any combo)

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    2. Lightly oil standard 12-cup muffin tin. Mix together dry ingredients and lemon zest in a medium bowl.
    3. In another small bowl, combine egg, milk and oil. Add liquid ingredients to dry and stir until just combined. Do not overmix. The batter should be lumpy.
    4. Carefully fold in berries. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full and bake 20-30 minutes or until golden.
