View Full Version : Low Fat Muffins

I did a bit of baking over the weekend and made some low fat muffins and very yummy they were too :)

I made 1 batch of blueberry & banana and 1 batch of spicy apple & sultana and lets just say there's now none left....do wonder if the low fat aspect of them is slightly lost if you eat vast quantities of them :D

I got these recipes off the internet but wondered if anyone else had some low fat/healthy muffin recipes they'd care to share, pretty please :)

I don't know low fat ones, but a friend of mine makes low carb muffins by substituting the flour for mashed bananas! I'm not sure exactly how it works but its meant to be a lot healthier.

Yum! None of mine are low fat really I'm afraid. I'm rebelling against the last two years when I had gall stones and couldn't eat any cake at all!

I have been making muffins with gluten free flour recently as well - they are yummy - even the cats like them ! its a delicate recipe too and they have to be eaten within 48 hours as the gluten free flour doesn't keep well even when baked, they are so scummy though they don't usually last more than 24 hours though . . . . I have postponed the next diet start date till after the new year as well

Cake + low fat is just wrong. But Muffins are very tasty and I am very jealous!

I have a Weight Watchers recipe for blueberry muffins and they have low fat natural yoghurt in which I assume replaces the cream?? I have never made full fat ones so i'm not quite sure what goes in them! They are very nice though and very light!

Hey yes no problem!

200g (7 oz) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarb of soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
75 g (2 3/4 oz) caster sugar
a pinch of salt
75 g (2 3/4 oz) margarine (melted)
100ml (3 1/2 fl oz) low-fat natural yoghurt
100ml (3 1/2 fl oz) skimmed milk
1 medium egg
200g (7oz) fresh bluberries (or fruit of your choice)

I hope you enjoy them, it says there are 155 calories per muffin which is 2.5 points on WW. x
