Berry Fat Free Sour Cream Muffins

Saturday, March 10, 2012
It's amazing how different we change our eating habits when on a diet, sometimes our foods taste the same or better with reduced fats, no really I'm not kidding, it's what you get use too! Only 65 calories ( of course without the frosting on these but they sure look good with it! ) For all you dieters out there here is a guilt free breakfast muffin you will love!
They taste great with  or without the optional sugar icing on top!

1 cup or 8 oz of fresh berries of your choice, raspberries, blackberries,  strawberries chopped or blueberries (you can used canned but drain well)
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cups packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoons baking soda
2/3 cups fat free sour cream or low-fat plain yogurt
1/3 cups canola oil
2 to 3 teaspoons grated orange zest (from about 1 orange)
1/3 cups orange juice
1 extra large egg
Preheat oven to 375 degree hot oven

Drizzle topping is powdered sugar and water mixed together

Line a muffin tin with 12 paper liners or greased the tins.
Mix together flour, brown sugar, baking powder and baking soda in a medium bowl, breaking up any lumps of sugar.
Combine sour cream, oil, zest, juice and egg in a large bowl. Stir in flour mixture till moistened. Add raspberries and fold in gently until evenly mixed. Batter will be thick, do not over mix.
Divide batter evenly between muffin tins with paper liners.
Bake 20 to 22 minutes until golden brown and toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool in pan 3 minutes. You can serve these warm or while still warm drizzle icing on top if preferred but not needed!


  1. Mmmm....looks really delicious. I would happily tuck in 2, with a glass of hot milk :D

  2. mhhhh great dear ^_^ Your mouffns sound delicious. Bye, have a good we

  3. I'd be happy to try these. They sure don't look any less than luscious. I've got loads of frozen blueberries still from last summer. If I'm careful (if I toss them with some flour, perhaps) I can make mine look as pretty, but no frosting for dieters!

  4. and these are regular size muffins, not minis, at 65 calories? ... that is great... what a great way to start a day and a nice snack too... I second that MaryM

  5. Delicious looking muffins! I love how the berries are still bright and colorful, it looks so inviting. I've baked before with plain yogurt and love the results. Bookmared this one for sure!

  6. Only 65 calories? Wow, these look fabulous, Claudia...and I'd definitely second the iced version :)

  7. I love the visible pieces of fruit in these muffins. They look delicious.

  8. Those are pretty muffins and they sound tasty!

  9. By the looks of those, no one would ever know that they are only 65 calories! Low in calories does not always mean that you have to sacrifice taste and your recipe here is a perfect example of that! Delicious post.

  10. These are fantastic! I can't believe how few calories they have...great recipe!

  11. Think I will do this this morning. I want something sweet and fresh around that won't break the calorie bank! Thanks!

  12. Another delicious and figure friendly recipe. Blessings my dear, Catherine xo
