Blueberry & Banana Oat Morning MuffinsMonday, March 18, 2013
From our skinny table to yours...
While still cooking in the muffin tin, we are mixing up our breakfast this week and indulging in fruit and oatmeal muffins! We love the muffin tin because it's fabulous for portion control. Ok, let's do some nutritional analyzing here.... you're running late and decide to pick up a blueberry muffin on your way to work..now let's take a look at the damage. Whether your grabbing breakfast from Starbucks or Dunkin' you're looking at between 380-470 calories with around 17 grams of FAT! That's just ridiculous. Is that how you want to start your day? No, we didn't think so ;)
We promise ours will satisfy your blueberry muffin craving without any of the guilt that comes along with indulging! These are super simple to make and not a drop of sugar, butter, cream or flour is involved ;) One of our favorite skinny substitutions when baking is to sub out sugar for applesauce! The applesauce allows for all the sweetness you need at a fraction of the calories. The wet ingredients in this dish come only from applesauce, blueberry greek yogurt, non-fat milk, egg whites and vanilla extract. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients consisting of only the fruit and oats! It doesn't get any healthier that this :)
