As I mentioned before, my eldest daughter is battling Cancer. While her recent scans were NEGATIVE(!!!!!), she is still battling serious lung issues. She was in the PICU for over a month, but now she is back in Aflac, the cancer and blood disorder wing, starting her rehabilitation. The other 2 girls and I are going to have a visit tomorrow, so we thought we would bake up some goodies. We have done this a couple of times; sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, brownies. While they all seem to appreciate the baked goods, I know how getting lots of baked goodies and food in the break room can add pounds on the hips or extra time on the treadmill; so I made them some healthy, but still yummy muffins.
Healthier muffins- preheat oven to 375
Cream together your wet ingredients-
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon vanilla
3/4 cup lite sour cream
1/2 stick of butter
1/4 cup applesauce
Mix your dry ingredients together, then add them slowly in the mixer to your wet ingredients
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups of berries
Cook for 25-30 min
Tip: Gently fold in your berries- I Used half blueberries and half raspberries in different batches. My daughters added them on top to the muffins after I added the batter to the tins. One LOVES blueberries, while the other LOVES raspberries. Normally, I would just pick one and add them all the mix, but when you cook with kids, anything goes!
