Plain Low Fat Muffin Variations

Plain Low Fat Muffin Variations

These low fat muffin variations complement the plain low fat muffins recipe I've already posted. This will enable to bake at least another 6 types of muffins. As I said before. The plain recipe is the mother of all muffin recipes. ;-)

You can create your own variations too. Just make sure you calculate the nutritional values if you're on a weight loss plan. Enjoy!
