Blueberry muffins

July 2, 2019

I wanted a nice fluffy, not too sweet blueberry muffin and these sure did hit the spot! I also get asked a lot for banana free baked recipes, I know I use banana a lot in my muffin and loaf recipes as it works so well to replace other ingredients with much higher point values, but I do try to create new ones often that are banana free 🙂 These blueberry muffins are simple to make and definitely cured that “I just want a damn muffin” attitude haha, at 3 smart points each they are a nice guilt-free treat and freeze well too.

Serves: 12
 
3 freestyle, 4SP/3PP per muffin
Ingredients
  • 1¾ cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk (I used 1%)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼ cup non fat plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1¼ cup blueberries, I found frozen worked best as fresh blueberries can be too large and make a mess of the muffins
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 12 hole regular size muffin tin with some non stick cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk together the egg and sugar, stir in milk, applesauce, yogurt and vanilla.
  3. Mix in the flour and baking powder, then slowly fold in the blueberries.
  4. Divide the batter over the 12 muffin cups and bake for approximately 22 minutes or until baked through.
  5. Let cool.. makes 12 muffins, best store in a sealed container and/or in the fridge

    Do you think it would taste much different if I replaced 1/4 c sugar with 1/4 c Equate No Calorie Sweetener with Sucralose? I made this today and the taste is good to me. It reduces it to 2 SP.

    Love your website & recipes, BTW. I just started WW 10 days ago and am looking for some inspiration for cooking with CANADIAN products. I dearly wish I could get some of those low point products that are available in the US 😉.

    Thanks, Debra T.

      Hi Debra, glad you are enjoying the recipes.. I don’t bake with sweeteners as they typically upset my stomach but if you enjoy them then I’d say go for it, I imagine they will work just fine .. I don’t use too many products from the U.S and most I buy here 🙂
