Blue Berry Muffins
(yields 12)

1 3/4 cup flour
6 Tablespoons sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites, slightly beaten
3/4 cup skim milk
1/3 cup canola oil
3/4 cup blue berries
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center. Set aside.

In a seperate bowl, combine the egg, milk, vanilla and oil. Add egg mixture, all at once, to the flour mixture. Stir until just moistened. The batter will be lumpy. Stirring all the lumps out will make a tough muffin. Carefully fold in the blueberries.

PAM muffin cups or line with baking paper cups; fill each 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans.

These are great warm or for breakfast the next day at room temperature. You can use fresh or frozen blue berries.

Banana-Graham Muffins - 3 Points

Recipe By :JoAnna M. Lund
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Make-Ahead Muffins

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3/4 cup purchased graham cracker crumbs -- or
12 (2 1/2-inch) graham cracker squares -- made into crumbs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons Brown Sugar Twin
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup (1 ounce) chopped pecans
2/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder -- Carnation
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup Yoplait plain fat-free yogurt
1/4 cup Kraft fat-free mayonnaise
2/3 cup (2 ripe medium) mashed bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

"Love bananas? Love graham crackers? Then this recipe has your name on it! These nutty, fruity delights are a super way to treat your family to something special that doesn't take a lot of time to prepare."

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 8 wells of a 12-hole muffin pan with butter-flavored cooking spray or line with paper liners. In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, flour, Brown Sugar Twin, baking powder, baking soda, and pecans. In a medium bowl, combine dry milk powder and water. Stir in yogurt, mayonnaise, bananas, and vanilla extract. Add milk mixture to flour mixture. Mix just until combined. Evenly spoon batter into prepared muffin wells. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out dean. Place muffin pan on a wire rack and let set for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from pan and continue cooling on wire rack. Serves 8. Freezes well.

HINT: A self-seal sandwich bag works great for crushing graham crackers.

Pamela"s Note: I would fill the rest of the muffin wells with some water to keep from warping the pan.

2 tsp. baking powder
l/2 tsp. baking soda
pinch salt
l tsp vanilla

Makes 12 muffins - 110 calories - 5.4 fiber - .6 fat - l point

Mix bran, oat bran, buttermilk, applesauce, egg whites, vanilla and sugar. Let stand 2 to 3 minutes. Mix flour, salt, powder, and baking soda. Stir into wet mixture. Add fruit and mix well. Line muffin tins with paper cups or spray tins with non-fat spray. Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 400. Muffins are done when they spring back when touched. DO NO OVERBAKE as they will dry out.

Note: Since I don't like berries, I replaced the blueberries with 3/4 cup diced banana. Quite good. Enjoy.

Here is another recipe from my kitchen~


Pineapple carrot muffins~~

~3/4 cup white flour
~3/4 cup whole wheat flour
~ cups wheat BRAN (reserve 1 Tablespoon for topping)
~1/4 cup packed brown sugar (reserve 1 teaspoon for topping)
~ cup Splenda
~ teaspoon cinnamon
~ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (plus more to sprinkle on top)
~pinch of salt
~1 teaspoon baking soda
~1 teaspoon baking powder
~1 teaspoon vanilla
~3 T nonfat unsweetened plain yogurt
~1 medium carrot
~1/4 cup applesauce
~7 oz pineapple crushed in natural juice, undrained
~1/3- cup water (adjust water as needed due to differences in yogurt, applesauce, and pineapple water content- you want a thick cake batter consistency for the batter)


Mix dry ingredients. Stir in yogurt, pineapple, apple sauce, and vanilla. Mix just until combined and moistened- add water as needed until batter is similar to thick cake batter. Divide batter evenly in 12 lined muffin cups. Sprinkle each muffin top with reserved brown sugar and bran and a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Bake at 375 for 16-22 min, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean

SERVINGS: 12
EACH MUFFIN:

3.5 gram of fiber
1 point each


Enjoy~~~Christine

Default Recipe clarification

Christine -

Thank you for the wonderful recipe. It sounds delicious! However, I noticed in your directions you mentioned "prune puree". How much of this do you add??? I don't see it in your list of ingredients.

Thanks for your continued successes in the kitchen!

Karen~

You caught an OPPPS~lol- I played around with the recipe and made it both ways- with applesauce and with prune puree but with the prune puree it bumped it up to 2 pts (jsut barely)- in all honesty, I could not taste a difference and there was no difference in texture/color either so I went with applesauce in the final copy but didn't catch the change in the dirrections~ Sorry~

Christine


....good thing spring break is almost over, otherwise I would have too many muffins and baked goods around at this rate...

This muffin recipe sounds very good. When you shred the carrot approximately how much is it?
1/3 cup? 1/2 cup? Also. did you ever make the muffins using all whole wheat flour instead of white & whole wheat?
Thanks for you help

I never measure the grated carrot but I would say it would be 1/2 cup lossely measured or 1/3 cup packed- if that makes sense-lol.

I find I need some white flour for liteness and taste- especially with using 3/4 cup of wheat bran in the recipe too. Also, there comes a point where the fiber benefit of the whole wheat flour does not outweigh the added calories in comparison to white flour. I first tried it wiht more white flour then whole wheat and then went to equal amouts- you could try it with more wheat flour, but we would have to recaluclate the calorites/fat/fiber to get the points- I am pretty sure it would bump it to 2 points, especially with the fiber cap of 4 grams.

Christineu..Thanks for the quick reply, I am anxious to make these though it will
probably be a few days as this is the last week of school before Spring Break.
The combination of the carrots & pineapple sounds great. Reminds me of a muffin called Morning Glory
which is so moist & wonderful but full of fat.
Thanks again!
