With all the focus on carbs, fat, diet shakes and the like, I think we have all forgotten: calories still count! These muffins are moist, delicious yet not too sweet. They are muffins, not cupcakes after all. Enjoy.

Great muffins! Loads of berries. I subed out the sugar for splenda and used unsweetened almond milk instead of the milk. Got these bad boys down to 80 calories each! Read More

I love this recipe!!!!!!! I personally found it too sweet but I have low blood sugar. My daughter is very finicky and she loved them! She is into all that healthy stuff! Her daughters loved them too!:). I added a little more applesauce and used organic whole wheat flour. Oh I added more vanilla too. Oh and I also added nuts to give it texture and flavor! My English teacher from high school would be so disappointed with the sentence structure here!!!!!! Lol!! I am going to leave out about 1/4 of white sugar the next time I make these by the way!;) Made these for my mother the way I like them. Not enough sugar for her. So I made them per recipe with nuts and flax seed added. She loved them! Read More

Positives: the flavour is nice and they are low calorie. Negatives: the texture is very chewy and dense. The "dough" was thick and hard to work with and I had to add a lot more milk just to be able to get the batter in my pans. The berries burst and created a blackened sticky mess in my muffin pans. I even used cupcake liners and my pans were still a nightmare to clean. Overall: disappointed and would not make these again. My kids would not eat them. Read More

These were good. I made a few minor changes following reading other reviews. I used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown a little more cinnamon and a little more vanilla and used Almond Milk (amazing) Next time I make I will definitely use a splash more milk reduce the sugar a little more more cinnamon and more vanilla and cook for a little less time. My oven runs hot. Would recommend these. a great snack in the middle of the day to keep you going calories for me were 96 per muffin could reduce this more with some more tweaking of the recipes. Highly recommend thank you for sharing. Read More

Absolutely loved these muffins. I picked up some blueberries this morning at a good price and decided to give these a try. This is definitely a "keeper" recipe. My husband isn't usually a fan of low-fat muffins but he said these were "low calorie high taste". Really love the cinnamon flavour - and the intense berry-ness of them. I baked them for about 17 minutes. Read More

Great recipe! I only made 12 muffins with the 16 muffin recipe so it was very blueberry heavy. Delicious and loved by everyone in the family. Read More
