low calorie muffin

After making yesterday’s muffins, I felt the need to try a lower sugar, lower calorie version. If artificial sweeteners aren’t your thing, this muffin won’t be either. However, if you’ve been known to break out the Splenda, I’d be curious to see what you think. At first I thought they had too much …

I like big crowns and I cannot lie. No flat top muffins need apply. When a muffin is hot There’s no reason to cut It up if it’s not high. Sorry for the rap (and thank you Sir Mix A Lot), but muffins with nice tops make me really happy; especially when they’re experimental muffins […]

Most of the muffins I make are pretty sweet, but this one’s not. It’s perfect for serving with savory dishes, salads or soups; but it would also be great for breakfast topped with some good preserves. When I first pulled these out of the oven, I was disappointed to see the tops …

chocolate Ricotta Muffin
