Z’s Vanilla Blueberry Muffins

Sugar-Free, THM-E, Low fat

Happy Valentine’s Day!

In honor of this lovely “love day”, I wanted to share a wonderfully sweet recipe with you! These muffins are so delicious that you won’t be able to resist!

These muffins are so moist and fluffy! The amazing thing is…they have no eggs, no butter and very little fat!!!

Yes please!

Never mind the kids!

I wanted to create a filling and sweet muffin that was packed with nutrition and healthy carbs that would energizing for a “on-the-go” mom like me! Not to mention my kiddos that are constantly hungry!

I was worried that they would be too bland, but they were far from that! My kids absolutely loved the sweet vanilla flavor and of course, the blueberries!

But, never mind the kids….I freaking loved them!!!!

I have a confession-I kind of hid these from the kids after I tried them. Yes, I just admitted that. Haha! But, that’s just how good these bad boys are!

Perfect for those “on the go” mornings when you need a nutritious breakfast, but don’t have time to make anything. They are also great for snacks! The other great thing is, they have just the right amount of sweetness to them… you can add a dollop of whipped cream, and they’ll even pass for dessert! Bam! These are amazing muffins!

But, the kids though….

Ok, ok…I do love my kids, and sometimes I share my favorite yummy recipes with them! But I especially love it when they help me with my photo shoots!

Jesse and the muffins
“Jesse, I’ll let you have a muffin if you smile by the muffins…”
“Jesse…can you look at the muffins please?”

Would you look at those eyes! Watch out girls!

But seriously, these muffins are very filling, so even after my kids have one or two, they get filled up! That’s the great thing about baking in a nutritious way. Nutrition allows you to be full with healthy fuels!

It allows you to eat “with a purpose”, and not to just curb your appetite. Eating nutritiously can be so yummy and so rewarding too!

Blueberries Everywhere!

What makes these muffins so amazingly moist when there is no butter in sight? Here’s the secret ingredients: cottage cheese and greek yogurt! Before you frown, just try them. You won’t be frowning anymore!

Also, they have that subtle and delicious buttery flavor…without the butter! Yay for THM-E snacks that are absolutely delicious, but ON PLAN!!!! I love the THM way!

I added two whole 8 ounce containers of blueberries to these muffins! Blueberries everywhere! There aint’ nothin’ wrong with enjoying God’s wonderful creation of blueberries! Don’t skimp on this recipe!

So, without further adieu, here is this awesome recipe! Hope you enjoy them as much as my family and I enjoy them!
