For Healthy and Tasty Muffins


A great majority of "Muffins" actually sold in supermarkets are simple cakes in individual portions, often too much generous, and particulary rich in calories. For a 100g supermarket "Muffin", the numbers of Calories often surpass 400 calories and the daily percentage (according to the Canadian alimentary guide) of Lipids is around 20% while those for Carbohydrates and Sodium are both at 25%. They also often have 20mg of Cholesterol. If we look at the ingredients list, we find out that, even if the principal ingredient is Flour, Sugars and Fats aren't very far behind. Thus, they're not concidered as an Healthy choice. Here's an Healthy basic receipe for 12 Muffins who let you add whatever you like in it.

300mL of Wholewheat Flour
300mL of Oatmeals
1/2 cup of Brown Sugar
10mL of Pastry Powder
5mL of Baking Soda
2mL of Salt
1 egg + 1 egg white
500mL of Fruits or Vegetables Purée (Apples Compote, Ground riped Bananas OR Butternut Squash Purée)
75mL of Canola Oil
350mL of Little Fruits, fresh or dried (any)

Unlike the cake pastry, the Muffin pastry shouldn't be mixed too hard. Stir it slowly, enough to wet the dry ingredients. Cook as a whole in an preheated oven at 175°C (350°F). (If you want to add more Fibrs and Omega-3, sprinkle them with Ground Flaxseeds)

In this receipe, for the same quantity (100g), the total calorie numbers is only 200, and the daily percentage of Fats only 11%. Both the daily percentage of Carbohydrates and Sodium are only 10%. To finish, the total Cholesterol amount is only 15mg.

Bon Appétit (Enjoy)

*This receipe is at it's best when we use little Italian Onions of flattened or rounded shape, from 3 to 4 centimeters of diameter, that we name Cipollini If you don't find some, replace them with ordinary little Onions.
