After baking an amazing raspberry dream cake without sugar I tried to make a healthier version of my favourite muffins: Blueberry Muffins.
No sugar! No Butter! And only 110 Kcal for one Muffin! Still, they didn’t taste like some healthy boring treats, they tasted really good!
Ok, yes, I did sprinkle some sugar on top, because I thought they would look prettier this way… But that’s totally optional!
* 200 g flour
* 40 g oats
* 16 g baking powder
* 150 g bananas
* 30 g of raisins (or other dried fruit of your choice)
* 2 eggs
* 250 g of fat reduced plain yoghurt
* 125 g of blueberries
* sugar to sprinkle on top (optional)
My kids don’t like raisins, which I hear is quite common… And I didn’t have any other dried fruits at home, so I used instead 30 g of rice syrup (from Reishunger*) instead. You can also use any sugar substitute of your choice, but make sure it’s ok to bake it!

5. Add the flour (200g), oats (40g) and baking powder (16g) and amalgamate.
