Blueberry Muffins

I have been really craving blueberry muffins so I got to to work in my kitchen the other night.  I always try to make healthy alternatives to traditional recipes – like subbing applesauce for the fat in the recipe and use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose.  Sometimes my baked goods come out good but other times they are a total flop. 

Well this time my recipe was a winner.  Keep in mind that I do not like an overly sweet muffin but I do enjoy one that is moist and not too dense. 




Here is what went into these beauties:

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1 1/4 cups nonfat buttermilk

1 tsp baking soda

2 eggs

2 tbsp brown rice syrup

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 cup frozen blueberries




As you can see they have a nice muffin top which happens to be my favorite part.  I always separate the top from the bottom before consuming.  Are there any are others like me out there???  

These are not a sweet muffin so you could add jam or honey to one before eating if you so please.  Or if you want them to be sweet to begin with add 1/4 – 1/2 cup of honey to the batter instead of the brown rice syrup.  I have been enjoying mine as is and I love them.  I am the only one in my house that will eat these – D does not like BB Muffins and Charlie knows that they are whole wheat so he won’t touch them either.  Oh well, more for mommy.  I have been gobbling them up too – like 2 a day.  They really are that yummy. 

Happy Friday!!!

YUM. It's tricky when substituting healthy ingredients in recipes- so it's really exciting when it actually works!

(I like the muffin tops best, too)
