Nana Berry Muffins


Sick of me going on and on about baked goods lately? Sorry, I cannot help it. Blame the little girl inside of me that craves them constantly. If she is not doing jumping jacks all day, she is craving the sweets.

I really think there is some truth to girls liking sweets more than boys.

But, I will say these are semi-healthy muffins. Again, my base muffin recipe with things thrown in. A typical Sunday morning treat, that lasts us till about Wednesday.

What am I kidding...more like Tuesday.

Nana Berry Muffins
2 egg whites
1/4 c. canola oil
1 1/2 c. yogurt
1/2 c. flax seed
1 1/2 c. flour
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 1/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 c. mashed banana
1 c. blueberries
1 c. chopped walnuts
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 12 muffin liners. Mix together egg whites, oil, bananas and yogurt. Gently stir in dry ingredients. Fold in walnuts. Remember the trick to great muffins is to NOT overmix!
Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

In other news...

The high today was 4 degrees, the snow drifts are measured in feet, and I'm pretty sure spring will never arrive. But thankfully since I'm 32 weeks pregnant, I'm generally warm most of the time so it isn't bothering me as much as others!
