Low calorie Yogurt Strawberry muffins
This is a low calorie basic muffin recipe, that can be substituted with different ingredients to change the flavors. This makes 12 muffins, and has 70 calories as written below.
1 cup crushed fiberone cereal
3/4 cup flour
2 egg whites,or 6 TBSP egg whites in a carton
12 oz Strawberry non-fat yogurt(100 calories a cup)
1/3 cup Splenda
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup low calorie strawberry jam,
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place 12 baking cups in a muffin pan.
Mix together egg whites, applesauce, and yogurt. Stir in cereal and remaining ingredients, just until moistened. If you want to add fresh, frozen, or dried berries, add them right before portioning out to muffin cups. Divide batter among 12 cups, or you can make mini muffins(reduce cooking time).
Bake 23-25 minutes until toothpick comes out clean and golden brown.
**Jam is an optional ingredient,but we love adding jam, if we are making a compatible muffin. I have also used vanilla non-fat yogurt, when making apple muffins. I have added flax seed to replace some of the flour. I have made batches with both wheat and white flour. I have made blueberry muffins, with blueberry yogurt and dried blueberries. These are very filling and not too sweet.
