oh yummy......

I am always looking for healthier baking choices in deserts for my family. I try to find higher fiber and less fat whenever possible. Today I found the perfect muffin recipe. It is one of the lightest muffins I think I have ever had. And you weight watcher counters will love this recipe. From the reviews I have discovered that this muffin would count as just 1 point instead of 3 points for the suggested store bought muffin. People have also shared their variations of what they changed in the recipe. However I found the recipe perfect the way it was. However this time I made a change and used all whole wheat flour instead of half ww and half wf.

Okay I know you are wanting to know what is the recipe - stop typing and share it already. Okay here you go. its from - I took them over to my mom's for taste testing and she and my brother liked them very much. My brother is a snacker by nature and he gave his approval and wanted the recipe. So that is a good sign. So even junk food people may find these delicious.

What I love is there is no butter or oil - it uses applesauce and non fat milk. You would never know the fat source is missing. I give this recipe a two thumbs up and will continue to use them. Oh my youngest sister who is working out with me at the gym also enjoyed the muffins as well. Even took another with her for a snack at work. So go ahead and try the recipe.
