You indluged over the holidays… as you should! But now you might be feeling like you need to take the next step towards improving your nutrition. For our first month of the year, we’re challenging you to prepare one meal each week. Meal prepping allows you to set yourself up for success. Let’s start with a dotFIT muffin recipe for a healthy morning breakfast or a snack!
Ingredients make 12 muffins:
1 Cup Organic Mixed Dried Fruit (such as raisins, cranberries, chopped apricots, chopped figs, etc.)
1 ½ Cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
½ Cup All Purpose Flour
¾ Cup Turbinado Sugar, plus more for sprinkling
2 Tbsp Orange Zest
1 ½ tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp Baking Soda
¼ tsp Salt
2 Large Eggs
¾ Cup Low Fat Plain Yogurt
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Place dried fruit in heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water, and let stand 5 minutes to plump fruit. Drain and set aside.
Coat 12-muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Combine flours, sugar, orange zest, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
Wisk together eggs and yogurt in a separate bowl. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture. Fold in fruit.
Fill muffin tins with batter. Sprinkle tops with sugar. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until tops spring back when touched and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Unmold and cool completely on wire rack.
