Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Blueberry Muffins

Another gloomy, damp day.....with the threat of that nasty white stuff later tonight! I can remember snowy mornings when I was a kid.......and they came out with box mixes of muffins and my Mom would make them alot! Well, they still have the box mixes but I'm sure they're way too high in PointsPlus™ (and calories for those not counting P+). I came across this recipe and tweaked it down to 2 P+.....and they're good!! Really good!!! And yes, these were made in my new muffin pan that I got from Santa (aka my cousin Cathie.....143)!

Makes 12 Muffins
1 Muffin = 2 PointsPlus™

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup oats (quick or old fashioned)
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup egg whites
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup fat-free milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Preheat oven to 400ยบ. Spray muffin pan with cooking spray OR line with muffin/cupcake papers.

In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and cinnamon; mix well. Stir in all remaining ingredients EXCEPT blueberries just until moistened. Gently stir in blueberries.

Fill muffin pan 3/4 full.

Bake 20 minutes or until tops are light golden brown.


Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*

Loving Life(time)!
