This is my favorite blueberry muffin recipe - they are full of such healthy ingredients and are lower in fat and calories. I will try to adapt this recipe to other fruits and add-ins.
I made these for a brunch this morning and was asked for the recipe; everyone was very surprised they were "good for you" muffins because they taste simply delicious.
1 cup of butter is 8 oz, but butter has a higher density than flour so one cup of flour will weigh less than one cup of butter. Great muffins
For lowfat muffins, these are delicious.
Wow this was so good. It is worth the try.
the recipe is calling for 4 1/2 oz(1cup) flour. i thought that 1 cup is 8 oz..... is it a mistake? thanks a lot
My muffins came out great and very tasty. I used frozen red currants instead of blueberries and the muffins came out moist and delicious.
My 9 year old daughter loved them. I keep making them all the time.
Thanks Ellie for a helthy recipe !
Excellent! Both the regular sized muffins and the mini muffins turned out great - I prefer the mini size. This is the perfect blueberry muffin recipe & I love that it is healthier than most!
Delicious! I agree that these could easily pass for unhealthy muffins. The applesauce I had was very spiced and sweetened, so I cut the sugar to 1/3c and omitted the lemon zest. I can't wait to try these with other fruit-- I'm thinking dried apricots with some ginger in the mix.
Outstanding flavor and texture. You'd never guess they're healthy. Read my entire review at: http://themomchef.blogspot.com/2010/02/good-for-you-blueberry-muffins-from.html
These were delicious! Very moist and flavourful and had a nice crunchy top which is my favourite part of a muffin. They have a slight nutty flavour from the whole wheat flour but it's not overpowering. Probably even better with buttermilk -- I used milk with a squeeze of lemon juice.
Loved these muffins... Moist, tender crumb, pop of blueberry tartness. I think these may be the best muffins I've had, healthy or no. Just as good the next day.
These were blah. I followed the recipe to the letter, but they just had no flavor, other than the occasional blueberry. The kids just thought they were okay. I'll keep looking.
Excellent recipe. I live at high altitude (6,300 ft.) and made no adjustments. The muffins are tender and delicious, even when reheated. Next time I'll use a little less lemon zest.
