While this doesn't reduce calories, it replaces a simple carb with a complex one.
Does anyone else have a recipe they like to do with Whole Wheat flour instead of white?
I just found a written log that I had for my ex, when he was on an eating program. I didn't think he needed to lose weight and he met the army standards for weight, but I would come up with recipes. I had forgotten all about that. I had muffin mixes that I had come up with from scratch. Fiber One had muffins at their site and I make the muffins with wheat flour, as I think they listed, for the white flour and sugar-free applesauce for the oil and lastly egg whites and splenda for the eggs and sugar. I also add a quarter cup of walnut pieces and dried fruit. I prefer that over cooked raisins. And then there is the salt, baking soda. I also put Fiber One and softened it in a cup of milk. The original, to me, wood like flavor to add fiber. Each muffin is six grams.
I remember when we were stationed in Mannheim, he would get bran muffins and they, to me, were yuck. I think that mine are good and only 100-127 cals each. I think it has to be tweaked to your own taste. I am going to try carrot muffins next. I make them and freeze them on a pan and then drop them into freezer bag for later defrosting. Take them out of the tin cupcake foils first before freezing.
