One thing I like about low fat muffin recipes is that you can eat 1, 2 or even 3 of muffins, and all it adds up to is to a hearty low fat breakfast... 6 to 9 WW altogether.
Who said becoming thinner involves sacrifice? Mate, if you're "dieting" and yet eating delicious low fat foods like these low fat muffins... you're laughing! Weight loss becomes a pain-free exercise!
Not bad compared to your normal chocolate chip muffin, containing about 28 points. There goes the allowable amount of food units for the day... in one muffin!
I have a personal muffin story I'll share with you later on in another page... for now, check this Spicy Apple-Carrot Muffin recipe. It makes 24 muffins, and each of them is only 2 points!
You could even have 4 and it would not matter!
And you may want to have 4, because the combination of carrot, apple, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice all give the muffin a pleasant sweet and spicy flavor... hence the name. ;-)
1 cup of rolled oats
3 cups of wholemeal (whole wheat) plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup of grated apple, unpeeled
1 cup grated carrot
2 cups of reduced fat buttermilk (or just plain buttermilk)
1 Tbs vegetable oil
This is what you do:
First, preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl after that, and then add the grated carrot and apple.
Next, mix the eggs, buttermilk and oil and stir it into the dry mixture.
Spray a 24-muffins tin in the inside (to grease the muffin tin) with canola oil and bake for about 25 minutes.
To check if they're ready, insert a toothpick. If ready, it'll come out dry.
