Blueberry Flax Seed Muffins
Very Good 4.5/5
(226 ratings)

Low-fat buttermilk and applesauce help lower the fat, and the whole-wheat flour and flax seed add fiber. These healthful muffins freeze well!

My whole family loves these! Although they may seem small (considering the size of muffin we can get in a bakery) but we always add a helping of fruit or yogurt for breakfast. Yummy!

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!

A slight twist on Chicklet14580's Lowfat Banana Muffins - I had to make a few tweaks and add some chocolate & pecans to get my self-proclaimed muffin-hater husband to even taste these. Now he loves them with coffee for breakfast!

Quick tip: Occasionally I throw ripe bananas in the freezer to use for cooking/smoothies, etc. If you thaw two med. size frozen bananas in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds, you'll have the perfect consistency for the muffins, with very little need for mashing. Also, because I only had 3/4 C of bananas on hand, I substituted the remainder of the cup (the original recipe called for) with applesauce and the muffins came out perfectly moist. You could make the recipe with 1 C. Bananas & 1/2 C. Applesauce, or (if you're low on one or the other) substitute a little of each with the other to reach 1 1/2 Cups total (banana & apple sauce).

Also, to make the recipe even more healthy, feel free to substitute whole-wheat flour for the white flour and/or substitute the 1 large egg with 2 large egg whites to reduce the fat from the yolk. You can also reduce the pecans & chocolate to 1/8 cup each.
