Are you looking for low sugar muffins to serve your family? I was because baking is fun for me. Not only do I love baked goods, I love whipping up something yummy for my family. Most muffin mixes and recipes are loaded with sugar!
I used to love the packaged muffin mixes, you know the just add this and that and mix it up kind. That is until I started to change our family to more clean eating habits. To me clean eating does not mean we can?t enjoy tasty treats and desserts, it means that we do so without the added junk of boxed mixes. I have found a lot of from scratch recipes I love, but hadn?t found one for muffins yet. So, one day I did some research and came up with a few recipes I pulled from and ended up with this one.
Low Sugar Muffins, You Can Make Today!
This recipe really does not take long to whip up either. I’m finished spooning the batter into the muffin pan before my oven is even finished preheating, that’s how quickly you can enjoy these tasty muffins! An added bonus I’ve discovered is that this recipe with chocolate chips, or even blueberries, you do not need a whole lot of sugar. So many muffin recipes use way more sugar that I want to eat in a muffin. I don’t need to feel guilty over the amount of sugar I have consumed by 8am.
Dark Chocolate Chip Muffins
I have made these with dark chocolate chips and but semisweet chocolate chips would be tasty too! This recipe also works for berries! I hope you enjoy them as much as we do! Find my full recipe for Low Sugar Dark Chocolate Chip Muffins on Homestead Scratch Cooking.
Banana Muffins or Bread
Next, I turned my thoughts to the family recipe for banana bread. The recipe had been used by all of us for years. Its easy and standard with a lot of butter and lots of sugar! The butter part doesn’t bother me as much as eating the large amount of sugar does. So I decided to make some changes to the recipe. Honey was considered but the conversion would still require a lot of honey. I thought, why not just reduce the sugar and see if it works. I adjusted the fats too, because I was feeling daring. I think you’ll love my adjusted Low Sugar Banana bread recipe too.
