Moist and delicious low fat whole wheat muffins loaded with blueberries in every bite.
Isn’t it dissatisfying when you buy a blueberry muffin thinking it’s a healthy breakfast option and it’s basically a sweet piece of cake with blueberries and lots of fat disguised as a muffin?
These muffins are low in calories and fat, high in fiber and good for you! Most of the fat has been replaced by applesauce which gives you a very moist muffin without all the added fat. You can make a half batch just as easily as making a whole batch if 12 muffins are too much for your household. I love them best fresh out of the oven, but I usually reheat them a few seconds in the micro the next day and tightly wrap any remaining with plastic wrap.
