1 cup skim milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
2 egg whites or 1/4 cup cholesterol-free egg product (those liquid eggs in the cartons)
1 cup all-purpose/plain flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 to 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped
Heat oven to 400 oC. Line or spray a 12 muffin/cupcake pan. I always use paper cupcake liners myself. (did find though they stuck to the paper a lot on the bottom?)
Beat milk, oil, orange peel and egg white in a jug. Sieve together both flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Mix in wet ingredients just until flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy) Fold in the cranberries.
Divide batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups, they will be quite full. Sprinkle with some sugar if desired and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from pan........no idea why?
Each muffin has 150 calories. 3 g Protein, 23 g Carbohydrate, 5 g Fat, 2 g Dietary Fibre.
They are not an overly sweet muffin and the whole wheat flour gives it a good flavour, will make them again.
Also remember my diet that isn't a diet. Thought I'd check in with you all about that. It's actually going quite well. I am making better choices and am trying to reduce my carb intake, as I love bread, potatoes and pasta. I have got the not eating on a night after my supper pretty much down pat and if I do have something it's generally a fat free yogurt.
I have upped my fruit and veggie intake considerably which is a good thing regardless, and I haven't had chocolate in ages!!! I like to have a Motts Fruitsations apple sauce snacks in the afternoon, which I count as my treat.
I am "suffering" in a morning at the moment, as I bought a box of Rice Krispies as they were on sale and I had a coupon for a free box of Rice Krispie snacks when you bought the cereal. They taste of nothing, I added a banana to them on Sunday morning to try and give them some flavour. I am used to the more "adult" flavour and textured cereals I think. Luckily it's only a small box of cereal, so I should have it all finished this week.
Still have a long way to go with this
