This recipe I found at cookinglight.com. Last weekend I tried making a healthy oat bran muffin recipe from that website. Well, we decided those Oat Bran muffins did not taste good at all. Even though the recipe called for 4 teaspoons of cinnamon, that spice didn’t add any flavor at all to them. I could have fed them to my mom’s dogs.
This is by far the best healthier muffin recipe I have found. If you are doing Weight Watchers these muffins are only 3 points each. I really like to bake muffins on the weekends and take them to work for breakfast in the morning, because they transport easily. I just put them in a plastic bag and I’m out the door. I should really start using a plastic container to carry them in to be more green shouldn’t I?
Tomorrow night for Valentine’s Day I am making the chicken breasts with cream and mushroom sauce in Julia Child’s cook book. Having some asparagus on the side and some Nutella ice cream for desert. Can’t wait to try make everything tomorrow.
