Super low-cal muffins

roxlet | Jul 3, 2014 09:12 AM

I stopped in my local bakery today for some iced coffee, and I was surprised to see some super-low cal muffins. And I mean low cal. The ones I bought were said to be 28 calories each. I'm not sure that's even possible, so I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on how to make these. They were oat bran muffins with raisins.

The sales clerk said that they are made without sugar (they use Splenda) and without eggs. There were not a lot of raisins, and there was a little sprinkling of oats on the top. I'm assuming that maybe applesauce replaced the fat, but there were pretty light and not gummy at all. The muffins were a standard size. But 28 calories? I'm stumped!
