These wholewheat muffins are made with rolled oats, shredded carrots, and unsweetened applesauce - I substitue Splenda for Brown Sugar - but you can tell the difference in tasteSubmitted by BGROSSKOPF
Making and eating home-made baked goods for breakfast can be heart-warming and yummy, but can it also be heart healthy? Yes! I am always thinking of ways to cut out the cholesterol. By eliminating butter and eggs in these Heart Smart Carrot Muffins, I offer you a good basic recipe to which you can easily add your own twist.These nutritious muffins use yogurt and whole wheat flour to get their great texture. In addition to the yogurt, other ingredients include fats that will do your body some good -- olive oil and nuts! You can vary the recipe by using your favorite fruits, nuts, and even another vegetable. I used carrots because I had too many in my fridge, but note that they are also an excellent source of vitamin A and fiber. The walnuts I used are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, and those raisins are full of mineral rich anti-oxidants.
My Heart Smart Carrot Muffins are a guilt-free power breakfast, perfect with some fruit or a cup of tea!Submitted by MANONTHEMOON
These muffins are loaded with whole grains, fruits, and vegetables! This is a slightly different version of my Healthy Breakfast Muffins. This recipe made 32 regular sized muffins. Depending on how full you fill the muffin cups, I'd say you should get 28 - 32 muffins. Nutritional value is calculated on 30 servings (1 muffin = 1 serving).Submitted by JLREYNOLDS77
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together banana, sugar, egg and vanilla. Stir in the yogurt (I've used applesauce when out of plain yogurt as well). Stir banana mixture into flour until just combined. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean. Let cool before serving.
