Blueberry Muffins (E)~ GF/SF/DF Options

Muffins are a staple at my house!  They are a quick grab on a busy morning as we head out the door.  They fit perfectly into a packed lunch or picnic.  The kids often enjoy helping me mix them together.  Muffins make the house smell good….so I’m in!

blueberrymuffins2Ingredients:

1 cup egg whites
1 cup Greek yogurt (you could use 1/2 Greek Yogurt and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup THM Baking Blend or Oat Flour
1 cup rolled oats
2 Tbs of THM Super Sweet Blend or 4 Tbs of THM Gentle Sweet or Truvia
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt

Options for Fruit:

1 cup blueberries, 1 cup diced apples, 1 cup mixed berries, 1 cup diced peaches

Dairy Free Option:  Use unsweetened applesauce instead of the Greek yogurt.

Directions:

Whisk all together and fold in the fruit of your choice. I’ve used blueberries and peaches (1/2 cup each) in a batch and loved it! Spray muffin liner papers with a light coating of cooking spray or use silicon muffin liners for easiest non- stick option.  Spoon into liners. Drop of few berries on top to make them pretty!  Bake at 350* for 20-25 minutes. Tops should be firm and not squishy. Let them cool if you can wait. 🙂

If you don’t have Baking Blend on hand, using Oat Flour in this recipe works like a charm!  Same amounts, even Steven.    You can easily grind up your own oats at home and save a bit of cash on your end instead of buying oat flour.  I think you’ll like them just as much as I do.  The oat flour version does contain more carbs than using Baking Blend.  I’d think 2-3 muffins could be a good serving.  Make sure to pair it with lean protein.  My pick for this is 0% Greek yogurt flavored with some real vanilla and sweetener.  Just watch your fat!  1 tsp of butter is the goal in your E recipes.  I think it’s still doable even with a few muffins.  These are so moist and yummy that you really won’t even miss it if you come up shy.  You can always add a little mixed fruit bowl on the side for a few more carbs, depending on how many you want in a breakfast or snack. I add fruit over the top of my yogurt. Another protein packed option is a smoothie or protein shake.  It’s a nice pairing for muffins as well.  I’d do an E smoothie or a Fuel Pull version.  An E if I wanted or needed a few more carbs in my meal.

  1. You gave various suggestions of what to pair these muffins with, does that mean there is not enough protein to eat them on their own? I would probably use the oat flour version. Looks so good, I plan to use fresh peaches. I was eating peach oatmeal this morning and thought “This would make a good muffin, I need to find a recipe!” And then this showed up on my facebook feed. 🙂 Perfect timing!

      • Do you add the extra protein if you are having a muffin (or 2) as a snack or are talking about for a meal? I’m very new at THM and still trying to figure it all out. I’ve been living off cottage cheese and greek yogurt as snacks for a couple of weeks and am dying to change it up a bit!!

        • Oh mercy! Don’t live off of cottage cheese and greek yogurt! Yes, I’d add protein for sure. How about a Fat Stripping Frapa or some type of protein shake? Change it up for sure or you’ll get bored!

  3. These look yummy! If I use FF greek yogurt, do you think I could get away with using whole eggs since that would be my only fat source? Thanks!

  5. Does this recipe make 12 regular-sized muffins or 12 mini muffins? They look awfully small in the picture.

  6. I made these muffins tonight and while they smell delicious they are very dense. What did I do wrong?

  10. I want to try these but I’m not a fan of chunks of Fruit in the muffin, do you think if I puréed it first and then added it, that would work out ok?
