Is anyone getting sick of all these healthy recipes? I hope not because here is another one. I promise you will not miss the globs of butter in this one. It is filled with wholesome ingredients such as low fat yogurt, whole wheat flour, flax seed and fruit. Now that gives you the okay to eat six of these for breakfast. Right?
That is my problem. I will eat six muffins but expect to stay thin because they were healthy muffins. I think that only works with celery. Somewhere along the line someone told me that if you keep eating celery, you will lose weight. Lots and lots of celery. The more the better. Don’t put any peanut butter or cream cheese on it. Why? Because it burns more calories to chew and digest than there is in the vegetable. Does anyone know if this is true? Hey Adam, can you help us?

Getting back to the muffins, they taste so good, you won’t even know they are nutritious. I love having some for a quick breakfast. When I made these, they didn’t bake up very high. I was a little concerned until I took the first bite. They are moist dense muffins that remind me of a comforting quick bread. They also store well in the freezer.
Blueberry Peach Muffins
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup chopped, peeled and pureed peaches
6 ounces low fat blueberry yogurt (nonfat is also OK)
2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1 cup blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar, oil, egg, peaches and yogurt in a medium size bowl. Beat until well blended. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and flax seed in another medium bowl. Stir well with a whisk. Add dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir lightly just until moist. Gently add the blueberries to the batter. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes or until muffin springs back when touched in the center. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Remove from pan and bring to room temperature before serving.
