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!!!

Peach Blueberry Muffins


Well, I still had peaches and blueberries and I absolutely hate wasting food! I also had company coming in. So, at the last minute, I decided to make some muffins. These are some BIG muffins!!! I think warming them up and putting some butter on them would just be delicious with a cup of coffee.....
 
PEACH BLUEBERRY MUFFINS
Makes 8 Big Muffins


3 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup Splenda granulated (or sugar)
½ cup brown sugar
1 TBSP baking powder
1 pinch of salt
3 eggs (or ¾ cup egg substitute)
1 cup reduced fat milk
½ cup melted light butter
1 cup blueberries
1 cup peaches, peeled and diced
OPTIONAL TOPPING:
2 tsp Splenda granulated (or sugar)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
2 TBSP melted light butter


Preheat your oven to 400°. Lightly spray a muffin tin or line with paper liners.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, ½ cup Splenda granulated (or sugar), brown sugar, baking powder and salt.

In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, milk and ½ cup of melted light butter until well combined.



Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just blended. Fold in the peaches and then the blueberries.




Fill muffin cups. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes or until the tops spring back when touched lightly.


OPTIONAL TOPPING: Mix together the Splenda granulated (or sugar), cinnamon and nutmeg. Brush muffins with the 2 TBSP melted light butter. Sprinkle with the cinnamon mixture.

Cool in the pan on a wire rack.



MY SPIN: I didn't make the topping even the the ingredients are in the picture.....I ran out of time since I had company coming. If you don't make the topping, I would suggest putting the cinnamon (and maybe even a heaping tsp of it) in the batter.


Later!
Loving Life!
Peace
Jan
