Alright, these aren't like, SUPER low calorie or anything, but I modified a whole wheat blueberry muffin recipe and made some pretty large muffins for less than 250 calories each!
I had to share this with you all because my family LOVED them (There are only two muffins left and I made them today!!). We all go nuts for blueberry muffins but haven't had them in a while because they are off the charts calorie-wise. Everyone missed them.
I stumbled across this recipe on tumblr
and I tweaked it so that the muffins are less calories.
I used a big muffin tin and made six muffins. Thus, ~250 calories each (less really). If you use cupcake tins and make smaller ones (you'll wind up with 12) they will be ~125 calories each.
Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins
1 large Egg
1/2 cup 2% Milk
1/2 cup Applesauce
1 1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup Honey
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1 cup Blueberries
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Mix all ingredients together sans blueberries. Once everything is mixed, pour blueberries in and mix gently. Batter should be lumpy—use a spoon, not a mixer!
Bake for 25-30 minutes if you use larger muffin tins, less time if you use cupcake tins.
I put the recipe on calorie count: http://caloriecount.about.com/whole-...ecipe-r1045890
Here's the nutritional information for a large muffin. Halve it if you make in a cupcake tin.
So yes, high in sugar and carbs but certainly a nice treat that isn't crazy high in calories
