Skinny whole wheat blueberry banana muffins – These healthy muffins are baked to perfection using Greek yogurt, whole wheat flour, honey for sweetness and the perfect blend of bananas and blueberries. Fresh and tasty.
It’s that time of year and the world falls in love. Every thing seems to say…..”Healthy. Less Sugar. Cut back.” Less fat.I know you’ve heard it too. It’s been bellowing in my ears since I couldn’t make myself stop eating gobbles of chocolate crinkles and coconut roasted almonds. Well the later could be considered pretty healthy…until you eat 6 handfuls at a time. Then….not so much.
With these whole wheat muffins you don’t have to sacrifice flavor for deliciousness. Yogurt creates the perfect moist muffin that you crave. Instead of being overloaded with sugar they’re sweetened from the nature of the fruit and a bit of honey.
My hubby who is anti-whole wheat (unfortunately), grabbed 2 of these for work the one day. I quizzed him later on how he liked them. He had no idea they were made with whole wheat and no sugar! That’s how deceiving and amazing these muffins are!
If I can fool my hubby with these healthy muffins you know you’ll want to try them. You just may never go back to ‘real’ muffins again. And same goes for me!
Here’s to a healthy NEW YEAR with lots less sugar and calories!
Thanks for being here friends! What are your New Year’s resolutions or goals??? I’d love to hear.
Til we meet and eat again,
