Wheat muffins with berries
These are so delicous!!1 I couldn't find the dried fruit so I used a frozen medley of differant berries. I also added a little wheat germ with the flour mixture for added nutrition. These turned out excellent and it made 24 muffins instead of 18. I'm having a great/good for me breakfast all week!!!
I left out the Cranberries, & normally hubby is not thrilled about wheat muffins, but he did like these, took the rest with him to work for coffee.
My doctor suggested that I needed more fiber in my diet and these not only fit the bill, but taste
so very good! I will be making these often and freezing 2 at a time to take to work with me!
Usually I don't like muffins, and I don't eat much fruit, but thought I would try these out.
They are pretty good.

Healthy and GOOD in the same muffin
I really enjoy these! Their moist, easy to make and alittle healthier than my other muffin recipes. Next time I will try adding raisins or nuts.
These muffins were easy to make and tasted great. I used cranberries & nuts for my crew. The whole family loves them. Thank you!
sugar-dusted wheat muffins
In the recipe is all healthy ingredients and when my eight year old asked me to make them a second time I knew this recipe was a winner.
Sugar Dusted Wheat Muffins
Excellent tasty recipe! Prepared the second time with use of Carnation fat free milk, substituting for the dry fruit, fresh chopped of blueberries, cranberries and apples. Reduced the brown sugar/flour for topping to just cinnamon sugar. Will call my favorite, healthy muffin!
These were wonderful
I made these as an afterschool snack for the kids and they really enjoyed it, I also add nuts and a handful of chocolate chips.
sugar-dusted wheat muffins with berries @cherries
this is a great recipe they are great in the morning with a cup of coffee. or you can warm with some whip topping or ice cream.
This recipe was easy to change to a low calorie muffins. I used Splenda for both sugars. This was great for the TOPS group this morning for breakfast. Everyone enjoyed the surprise goodies. Thanks, this is at the top of my muffin list
Easy and Healthy
I found that if you use whole wheat pastry four, these muffins are still moist and have even more fiber and vitamins. Guilt free gourmet!
Sugar-Dusted Wheat Muffins with Berries & Cherries
I made this for my husband who is on a restricted diet. I used egg and sugar substitutes and light margarine. The recipe drew raves from him and his friends.
Tasty and Worth the extra time!
Muffins turned out great and worth the extra time it took for me to make since I don't cook or bake a lot. I made extras to freeze for mornings when in big hurry. Taste so good with butter after 1 minute in microwave!
These muffins were easy to make and tasted great. Even the kids were fans! I wonder though, if there were a way to make them lower in fat content?
Better w/ nuts!
Nice wholesome recipe made even better with chopped pecans!
