Skinny Blueberry Muffins

Skinny Blueberry Muffins

The whole Skinny Blueberry Muffins thing came about when I was preparing to spend Memorial Day weekend on a boat with a few friends and, while packing and watching reruns of Bates Motel, I thought, “What does road trip mean? Road trip means Starbucks muffins.” So I was dreaming about swinging by Starbucks on my way out to the lake, and then I remembered: lake = water, water = bathing suit, bathing suit = no bloat, please. So then, really stuck between a rock and a hard place, I came to the following conclusion: “J,” I said. “You’re a baker. Why don’t you just skinnify some blueberry muffins and pretend you stopped by Starbucks per usual.” So I did. I skinnified a few muffins. Nine to be exact. And it was awesome. Skinny Blueberry Muffins by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog. Made with xylitol, stevia and fat-free sour cream.See?

The temperature was just right. The waves were calm. We blasted some oldies, some newies, had an adult beverage or two, and I wasn’t even thinking about the infamous bloat. That used to never happen. But that wasn’t even the best part. These muffins were soooooo moist, delicious, flawless. Potentially better than Starbucks, but I’m biased so you’ll have to try them out yourself and let me know. End of the day, my Skinny Blueberry Muffins became a success story. Skinny Blueberry Muffins by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.
