We had a late night on Saturday night. We were out with an old friend who has been in Korea for the last 6 years. We had a blast - good times with good people, but were up many many hours past our usually modest bed time. Due to the late night happens, we were both somewhat useless today, and had a lazy sunday complete with greasy hangover deliciousness. Of course, those who know me know, I never really have a complete write off of a day - I always get up to something! Late in the after noon I had a hankering for a blueberry muffin ( blueberries are in season here and they are oh so tasty and sweetly plump!)
**Of course - buying muffins is out of the question.**
Determined, I made up a recipe using what I had in the pantry.
Now, I know it will be tempting to lick your screen, alas I assure you it will not be nearly as tasty as one of these morsels.
Best of all ? They are sinfully healthy.
You didn't think I would post scrumptious treats, bragging of their good for you nature without posting the recipe do you ?
Here you go lovelies!
Jaime's Sinfully Good For You Blueberry Muffins
Preheat oven to 375
In one bowl please mix :
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup fat free vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 egg + 1 egg white
3/4 cup quick cook oats
1/4 skim milk
In another bowl please mix :
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup bran
2 tsp baking power
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
Fold 1 cup blueberries ( or cranberries or raspberries etc - just make sure its fresh, not dried) with the wet bowl, then incorporate the dry. Mix just until there are no dry streaks in the bowl. This recipe makes 12 muffins - I didn't grease the pan, and they came out beautifully. I did however sprinkle a wee bit of white sugar on the top before they went in the oven.
I will note - these muffins are Dan approved, he is not a sweets fan, and said they were just sweet enough.
They are not a dessert muffin, rather a lifestyle muffin ( how do you like the sounds of that!?)
