    muffins healthy with no added sugar

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon softened butter

  • Directions

    Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line or lightly spray muffin cups, including top of pan, with cooking spray.

    Cut the sweet potato into quarters. Microwave on high for approximately 8 minutes (it is done when the skin pulls off easily). In a small mixing bowl mash together the cooked sweet potato and applesauce. Whisk in the eggs, vanilla, almond extract, honey, and milk.

    In a medium mixing bowl, sift or mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, and remaining spices. Make a well in the center and pour in the egg mixture. Mix just until everything is moistened (lumps are okay). Spoon the muffin batter in to the muffin cups, 2/3 full.

    For crumb topping: Use a fork to mix together all the ingredients until crumbly. Lightly sprinkle crumb topping onto each muffin.

    Bake muffins for 18 - 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Serve warm.

    Worried about compromising flavor and texture by using whole wheat flour? Don't be! There are many types of whole wheat flours that are sweeter and lighter than the traditional kind. Hard white wheat flour creates similar results as all white but is much better for you. There are other choices, too, like kamut flour, spelt flour, oat flour, and teff flour. These are all healthier alternatives. So ENJOY!
