Healthy Muffin Recipes: Because We Need Muffins

No one can say that I haven’t tried to turn the muffin into a healthy snack for people to enjoy. Some people think my muffins are not sweet enough (or perhaps too dense) but others are fans.

Every time I make a healthy muffin recipe in my house - they disappear in about an hour.

These recipes have a bunch of different tricks to make them tasty without the usual suspects of sugar and butter. I use fruit, buttermilk, yogurt, more vanilla, eggs, white whole wheat flour, a blender, pancake mix….. all different tricks in the different recipes to achieve the same taste and texture as a regular muffin.

I think muffins are perfect because they give you a portion size (as opposed to cake). You can grab one for a snack and then freeze the rest (and take out what you need).

I know you don't choose the ads, but right now I'm seeing an antivax Tshirt ad on this page. Just thought you'd like to know in case you want to take it up with your ad service.

Thank you for the assortment of HEALTHY muffins. I love just about any kind of muffin for breakfast or a snack. Now I have healthy choices of what to make.

Thank you for all your labor to help us stay on track. My husband has developed some food allergies so I’m experimenting this morning with the “weird” flours. (Sweet potato and cassava flours.)

How can I find the weight watcher points for these muffins? Also I couldn't see what I was typing due to all the pop up ads being in the comment box.

I can’t tell from pictures if these are the tiny muffin tins or the regular size muffin tins. Thank you.

Can I sub in 1-to-1 flour where AP flour is used? My husband is recently gluten free. I have blitzed oats successfully in one recipe. Sometime 1-to1works. Sometimes not.

I'm a big fan of muffins for breakfast and frequently make your blender muffins; I use really ripe bananas and omit the sweetener. I also make your Kodiak muffins, but I up the cinnamon to 1 tsp and increase the oatmeal to 1 cup or a bit more and add a heaping cup of berries or diced fruit. I've also used a muffin tin for Snack-Girl baked oatmeal.

I would love to start a group and do one of these recipes each month to keep me motivated. Because I want to try them all.
