Basic Low Calorie Muffin Recipe

1 3/4 cup of flour
1/4 - 1/2 cup of Splenda (you control sweetness)
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup of skim milk
2 teaspoons of oil

Combine dry ingredients; make well in center and add wet ingredients. Fill muffin cups and bake in preheated 400-degree oven in muffin cups until golden.

Entire low calorie muffin recipe contains about 1,050 calories. To make other varieties of muffins, simply add dried fruits, extracts and spices.
One day, I'm gonna make some of these.
Ya know, play around with it and create something that doesn't sound *so* boring-lol.
Any suggestions for me? Like, for example, how to get around using oil {can't you use apple sauce?!}? Can I use egg whites only?

Also, any suggestions on flavors, spices, or toppings?

For some reason I just has an image of McDonald's shamrock shake converted into a muffin, so I'm going to try to make a mint muffin with... maybe some cocoa extract (chocolate mint) and green dye for kicks.

apple muffin - vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg (or pumpkin pie spice)and dried apple bits
Blueberry - again, vanilla extract and fresh (or frozen) blueberries or blueberry extract if you have it
Same for strawberry or any other berry

Pizza muffin! Take out the splenda, add some tomato paste, mix in some vegan cheese (or nutritional yeast) and Italian seasoning. (I'm putting up my recipe for pizza muffins later) Instead of applesauce I'd use grated butternut squash though (it keeps the silky texture, plus vitamins).

Just remember, extracts are your Calorie-free friends.

(And yes, you can use apple sauce. I've done it before with brownies. You could use light soy/almond/rice milk too.)
