About Me

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!!!

Strawberry Muffins

STRAWBERRY MUFFINS
Makes 12 Muffins
1 Muffin = 2 PointsPlus™


1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup fat-free milk
1/4 cup egg substitute
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup Splenda granulated
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups chopped strawberries

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine applesauce, milk and egg substitute. Beat lightly.

In a large bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and Splenda. Toss in chopped berries and stir to coat with flour. Pour in milk mixture and stir together.

Fill 12 paper-lined muffin cups.Bake @25 minutes or until the tops bounce back from the touch.

Cool 10 minutes and then remove from the pan.

MY SPIN: The muffin recipe originally called for 1 cup of chopped berries and no cinnamon but I added 1/2 cup and the cinnamon for my own taste. It also originally made 8 muffins, but doing it 'my way' is still a nice muffin and has more flavor.

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.*

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
