I loved watching Paula Deen on her cooking show. She was funny and always made food with love, even if it wasn’t so health conscious. Since she was diagnosed with diabetes she has come out with several cookbooks with more healthy options. This recipe originally came from her cookbook “Paula Deen Cuts the Fat” and can be found here.
I tweaked it a little more to make it dairy free and to cut down even more on the sugar and fat. Believe it or not, this recipe has no oil and only 1/4 cup of sugar!Jump to Recipe Jump to Video
They are full of healthy berries, oats, applesauce and can be made with whole wheat flour. Any berry may be substituted for the blueberries and they can also be made using frozen berries!
Blueberries are full of antioxidants and vital nutrients. These muffins are dairy free, nut free and oil free! The applesauce takes the place of the oil and the muffin tops come out moist and delicious without the addition of the added fat and calories.
