I am looking for a healthy muffin recipe that can be made with different kinds of veggies of fruit (carrot, apple, zucchini, etc.). Minimally I am looking for only WW, no margarine and minimal sugar, but the healthier the better. Even if you recipe calls for only one specific fruit/veg send it in anyway and I can always play with the replacements.

Thanks

HEALTHY MUFFINS

1 cup whole wheat flour (I buy pastry flour)
1 cup oats
1/2 cup honey
less than 3/4 cup applesauce
1 egg
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup chocolate chips (optional-you can use craisins, raisins sugar free choc chips or nothing!)

Mix all ingredients until combined, don't overmix
Put into sprayed (I use nonstick spray with flour) muffin tins and bake at 350' for 15-20 minutes

use whole wheat flour ... some flax seed ... and make sure if you have a lot of fruit that make it heavy to use a sufficient amount of baking powder ...

My muffins recipe is super healthy and can be adjusted in many ways to include different flours, veggies and fruits. It can be made with more or less fiber depending on how much your system can handle. They are also fat free so they are not as yummy as store bought but again, they are very, very healthy. 2 muffins are only 3 weight watchers points if you use splenda as the sweetner the basic recipe is:
Pre-heat oven to 350
DRY INGREDIENTS
-3 cups grain. You can use a mix of any of the following: whole wheat flour (or pastry flour), wheat bran, oat bran, oatmeal (not instant)
-1/2 to 3/4 cup sweetner- I use splenda, but you can use sugar, honey, agave- if you use honey or agave add to wet ingredients, not dry
-1 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp salt
-1 tsp cinnamon-optional
-pinch nutmeg- optional

WET INGREDIENTS

-1 egg or 2 egg whites
-then I add one cup of additional wet ingredients made up of skim milk and whatever pureed fruit or veggies I have on hand- generally baby food like butternut squash, applesauce, blueberries, carrots. I empty one or 2 jars into a measuring cup and add enough skim milk to make one cup liquid. Sometimes I add a grated zucchinni or mashed banana.

Add wet ingredients to dry, mix with spoon, do not overmix. Then you can add berries or chips if you want. Bake for 20-25 minutes until tops brown. These are very, very hearty, especially if you use alot of the bran. Enjoy!

Well, I use Splenda, so they are sugar free. And they are fat free other than the spray and they have a ton of whole grain and vitamins and nutrients from fruit/ veggies. To me that is a pretty healthy muffin. If you have a problem with artificial sweetner I hear you. But even a 1/2 cup agave for 12 muffins is pretty good.
