Healthy High Fiber Muffins with Greek Yogurt



Introduction

The high fiber and protein in these muffins work to fill you up on the run and they are yummy too. My family goes through a full dozen in less than 2 days. For lower fat/calories, reduce or omit walnuts (48 calories per serving as in recipe.)

I make these muffing a varienty of ways, but nutrition is for ingredients as is without substitutions.

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    2.25 cups Fiber One or any high fiber cereal (note, adjust for sugar if using something else - fiber one as artificial sweetner in it)
    1.5 Whole wheat flour
    Plain Greek Yogurt (6-8 oz)
    2 1/2 tsp. Baking Pwd
    2 tbs. vegtable or canola oil
    4 Egg whites (or egg beaters)
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 c. brown sugar (or honey)
    3/4 chopped walnuts
    1/2 raisins (or 1 cup fresh cranberries)
    Mashed banana (or 1/2 chopped apple)
    1 1/4 c. skim milk

Directions

In small bowl, add fiber one cereal (can put through food processor to crush first, but don't have to), skim milk, egg whites, and oil. Set aside.

In large bowl, add whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt, and brown sugar. Blend.

Add to large bowl, yogurt, mashed bananas (about 2 - 2 1/2) and cereal mixture. Blend. Add nuts and raisins. (Add more milk if needed. Batter should not be pourable but very wet - looser than cookie dough, tighter than cake batter.)

Scoop into pam sprayed muffin pan. Yields 12 muffins.

Bake 15-18 minutes.

Note: Often make this with cranberries and 1/2 chopped apple instead of bananas, honey instead of brown sugar. When using cranberries sometimes cut back milk and use orange juice. Can make these multiple ways. Nutrition info for banana, raisin, nut version.
