Applesauce Bran Muffins-- moist and yummy!

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

I am constantly on the lookout for muffin recipes that use healthy ingredients that look like they won't be too heavy and don't use refined sugar. The Applesauce Bran Muffins  I found on the American Heart Association website fit the basic requirements. The healthy ingredients include bran flakes, oatmeal and egg substitute. The only sugar, besides the unsweetened applesauce is 1/3 cup of brown sugar. As you can see by the photo the recipe makes a handsome muffin. Better, they are also tasty and moist. And for 129 calories per muffin you can't beat the flavor for the calories! I served the muffins with the Sesame Shrimp Salad for a total of 368 calories for the meal. This is a great menu for either lunch or a lighter dinner. Everyone loved the muffins and the meal. A good solution for a summertime meal. A big hit and a definite repeat.
