OMG GUILT FREE CORN MUFFINS

If you like corn muffins, there is a good chance you'll love these.  Came across them on the Minimalist Baker site, one of my faves for recipes, particularly dairy free recipes. 

The first time I made these muffins I used blackberries as it calls for.  The next time and every time thereafter I've used blueberries.  I find them to be a bit more accessible than blackberries.  If you opt to use blueberries, suggest dicing them up, so the inside is exposed.. I think the juice from inside the berries adds to the moisture of the muffin. 

The recipe as outlined on Minimalist Baker, renders a quantity of 10-11.  I used a 12 muffin tin pan which makes 12 medium sized muffins, not super tiny or huge.  These are nice for breakfast with a nut butter or sweet spread or jam (like apricot), paired with a hot cup of tea or some hot cocoa.  They're also great as a snack.

These are approximately 220 calories each.  I try to use a tiny bit little less sweetener and oil that the recipe will call for.. this makes it a bit more calorie friendly.

Tips to cut down on the cals

• Stretch the count - ration into 12 instead of 10... or 6 instead of 4 depending on what the recipes calls for
• Use less - less of the high calorie ingredients, not so much that it would compromise the integrity of the recipe, but maybe use  2 teaspoons of sugar instead of 3.

Small changes make big difference!  

After they are cooked and once cooled, I wrap them individually in foil. They're then put them in a freezer safe bag, and in the freezer they go to enjoy for weeks and months.  

One bowl. Gluten free. Dairy free. Vegan. Yummy goodness.

P.S. I'm not a vegan, I just don't cook with dairy.. dairy consumption is limited.
