Today I had the baking bug, and for those that don’t know me, I love my sweets, BUT- I am always trying to figure out how to make something a little healthier. I do have my splurges and they are about one time a week. I love the real deal and will never be able to give that up. Well, for now anyways!
So, I was looking around on the internet and came across a muffin from The Natural Nutritionist. She has amazing recipes and I decided to make some of my typical tweaks and change this around a bit.
2 1/2 cup almond meal (ground up almonds)
4 egg whites
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup greek yogurt
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup blueberries
1/4 cup reduced sugar craisins
1/4 cup water
4-5 packets of Stevia (you can always use more or less, but I like things sweet)
Preheat oven to 350*
Mix all the dry ingredients together, then combine wet ingredients. Slowly stir in blueberries and craisins.
The batter will be slightly thicker because of the almond flour
I use a tablespoon and scoop out 2 heaping scoops filling about 2/3. Then flatten out or they will bake however you place them into the muffin tin
Bake about 25-28 minutes. Remove and let cool
These need to be refrigerated and will last about a week! Hope they don’t make it that long.
Total calories (aprox)(because of the almonds) 1876
Calories per muffin: 156 calories
Please let me know if you make them and what you think.
