Recipe: Healthy Blueberry Muffins

I love muffins but do not love what they do to my waistline, so what could be better then a delicious blueberry muffin without added refined sugar, flour or loaded in butter. These are naturally sweetened by the blueberries, a cup of mashed banana and a touch of raw honey. The coconut oil keeps these moist and adds a healthy fat to the muffin. These healthy muffins will be sure to please yet save you from the dreaded muffin top!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup Whole Grain Spelt Flour
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1 tsp of Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tbsp of Pure raw Honey
  • 4 Tbsp of Coconut Oil (measure the Tbsp when liquid)
  • 1 Cup of mashed banana
  • Juice from 1/2 of a fresh lemon
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup of fresh blueberries

Instructions

Mix together the dry ingredients and set aside. Beat the whole eggs and egg whites. Mix in the mashed banana, vanilla, honey, oil and lemon juice. Add in the dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in the blueberries. Using a 1/4 measuring cup, pour batter evenly into 12 prepared muffin tins. Bake at 400 degrees for 14 - 18 minutes or until slightly brown on top.
