35 Calorie Muffins

What you need: 

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar free applesauce
1/2 cup sugar substitute, to taste
1/2 cup water

What you do: 

Spray 12 cup muffin tin and preheat oven to 350. Mix flour, soda, cinnamon and salt together. Add applesauce, sugar substitute and water, mix until just blended. Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes or until tops have lightly browned.
You could make these with soymilk and diced apples and nuts mixed in, but it will alter the calorie content (which is approximate). I have also made these with half a mashed banana instead of applesauce, but again, that alters the calories.

I used 1/2 c flour and 1/2 c oats and omitted the salt, but I still thought they were too salty. I didn't add any sugar, just some vanilla and it made a plain little muffins. Even though I made mine small, they didn't bake on the inside. They were still gooey. That's alright with me though.

Well, yeah, if you're going to make them bigger they will have to bake longer as well.

Nah, I just make 'em pretty small.  If you make six than they are still just 70 calorie muffins.

The carrot sounds good!  I have tried and failed with zucchini (I think I added too much) but will try again sometime soon.

i wonder if this recipes makes MINI muffins? because there isn't enough "stuff" in it to make more. i think that is why you only got 1/2 dozen. looks good though!

Yum! I made carrot muffins based on this recipe and I used rye flour, replaced the apple sauce with 1/2 cup of chopped of carrot (food processed), and used 1/3 cup turbinado sugar... They were very moist and had 104 calories, 24 carbs, and 2 grams protein each except for some reason it only made 6 regular sized muffins...  ???

Yes, there is stevia, which I mention above....

Great picture!

Is there a half-cup vegan sugar sub that would work here?  Splenda is certainly not vegan (look at its history in the infamous Huntingdon Life Sciences lab - tens of thousands of animals were tortured for it.)

My calorie counter comes up with about 75 calories if you use a half cup of agave, which is still not bad for a muffin, but I haven't tried it to see if it would work.
