Healthy Delicious Muffins

Being prepared is critical to eating healthy. So, I am baking batches of wheat free, fruit, nut muffins on Sundays to have during the week.

Just look at these photos, is your mouth watering? They may look like those ladened with sugar and fat heart-attack-waiting-to-happen muffins but they are full of wonderful healthy, good-for-you,  ingredients like lintels, chia seeds, sweet potatoes, fruits and nuts.

Apple Lintel Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (you could also add some ground nutmeg and ginger here – perhaps 1/4 teaspoon of each)
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup cooked lentils
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 peeled chopped apple
  • 1 pureed apple with peel intact
  • 1 cup nonfat milk
