Health nuts - show me your muffins!

dubedo | Nov 26, 2006 11:43 PM

I am looking for a super-healthy muffin recipe. I don't mind if it's a little dense and "tastes healthy" - I'm not looking for an inviting breakfast, but on-the-go fuel. I'm very active and need snacks for the backpack, but find today's high-tech bars (Power, Luna, Clif et al.) too sweet and chemical-y. I've discovered that homemade muffins, individually wrapped and frozen, fit the bill perfectly. Throw one in the bag, and they are thawed in time for an afternoon snack!

So I've been experimenting with recipes. I'm looking for low- or no-fat, high-fiber/multigrain, inviting to fruits and nuts and amenable to freezing. I can substitute applesauce for the fat in traditional muffin recipes, but I'd love to make something a little more creative!

Thanks y'all!
