Every year during January it seems that the commercial industry just can't get enough of "Diet Foods" and "Weight-loss Supplements". Even the Food Network is doing a whole day of "Healthy Recipes"! SO...in order to join the Bandwagon, I decided to bake up some really healthy Blueberry Muffins. They're super high in fiber and antioxidants and has very little fat and sugar. They've even got some Omega-3 from the Walnuts! Now try not to eat the entire batch! :)
Ingredients: (6 muffins)
1 c high-fiber cereal (I used Trader Joe's)
1/2 c milk
1/2 fresh blueberries
1 tsp vanilla
4 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 egg white
1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/4 c packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 c chopped walnuts
1. Prejeat oven to 400°F. Line a regular-size 6-muffin pan with paper baking cups.
2. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor). In medium bowl, stir cereal, milk and vanilla until well mixed. Beat in oil and egg with fork until blended.
3. Stir flour, sugar, baking soda and salt into cereal mixture just until moistened. Gently fold in blueberries and walnuts.
4. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
