Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend Countdown - Basic Mega Muffin (S or E) May 30 2015

Now this is a Trim Healthy Mama Staple Recipe that you are going to want to keep handy!  What a brilliant idea from Jennifer Griffin (A Home With Purpose - one of my go to blogs)

Basic Mega Muffin (S or E)
  • Ingredients for Basic S muffin:
  • To Make this an S Muffin:
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup mixed berries
  • a serving of 60 Lily's Chocolate Chips
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • To make this an E Muffin:
  • use ¼ cup egg whites instead of the egg.
  • use 1 tsp of coconut oil or butter.
  • add 2 Tbs of unsweetened applesauce instead of water. (my preference)
  • add an E fruit like peaches, apples, pears or bananas. (1/2 chopped banana or ¼ cup or so other chopped fruit)
  • With all those E fruits, I add some cinnamon to my batter.
  1. Mix it all together vigorously and pour it in an oven safe or microwave safe bowl. I prefer the texture of the oven myself.
  2. bake for 15 minutes. From there it depends on the oven and what type fruit you've used.
  3. Keep an eye on it until it's done.
  4. An E Banana Muffin took me the longest at 20-23 minutes or so.
  5. If you use a microwave, start at 1 minute and 20 seconds and go up from there!
  6. The Banana took me 2 minutes and 30 seconds. It's the most moist and takes the longest in my opinion.
