I found, but I can’t remember where so if it’s yours please tell me and I’ll put your name on it, a recipe for muffins. They are called Anything Goes. And it’s right, anything goes. They are amazing and maybe it’s the recipe or the combination I used or what but they are yummy. I made from this recipe 12 regular size muffins, 16 mini muffins and a mini loaf of bread. I figured for a normal size muffin, 3 mini muffins or a slice of bread it should be about 75 calories (with my recipe) Not bad for a snack or something sweet and good for you. Anyways, here’s the recipe and a picture.

Wet Stuff first:

1 cup of wet white stuff (cottage cheese, tofu, yogurt, mashed potatoes, milk, ect)…….I used raspberry low fat yogurt

1/4 cup butter or oil or squashed avocado – I used homemade butter

1 cup sugar or similar – I used sugar substitute

2 beaten eggs or egg substitutes – I used mine from our chickens

1 tsp vanilla or lemon juice – I used lemon juice

pinch of salt

1 1/2 cups wet stuff (pineapple, applesauce, grated carrots, zucchini, bananas, ect) …I used 2 really dead banana’s and my homemade apple/cranberry/raspberry sauce

mix this up…..

Then dry stuff:

2 tsp of spice – mix them up! – I used cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

2 cups flour (cut with oats/brand/anything dried up) … I/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup white and 1/2 oat bran

1 cup dry stuff that you have on hand (nuts, chocolate, cranberries, ect) ….I used a cranberry/raisin mix

mix this up together with wet stuff….

Bake for 20 minutes at 375*.  I’m betting if you’re really good you could cut these down to even a lesser calorie.

I love these kind of recipes that let you add what you have on hand. Thank you for whomever I got this from I am sorry I didn’t copy your blog down cuz I’m betting there were other recipes I could use too.

Now I also made up a hot dish today. I’m good for just throwing whatever I have left over into it. This one has left over chicken, left over spaghetti sauce, home made spaghetti sauce, onions, green/red peppers, green chilies, wheat and sprout grain tortillas, shredded cheese and when it’s served some sour cream. Daycare had it for lunch today and then tomorrow a casserole dish of it is going to my husbands work for lunch along with the mini loaf.

The kids helped me do the mixing, adding and clean up and of course eating up.

I hope you all are doing wonderful. Take care and have a blessed day.

Too funny about the muffin recipe - 1 cup of wet white stuff. I giggled when reading that. Sounds like it works well though... Cheers!

I've got to try these.
I love that you make most of your food from scratch - and chickens from your own hens, and homemade butter?! A girl after my own heart! :)
I also find it's a little harder to track the calories this way, but All Natural! It's got to be better!!!

Love that the kids are learning about cooking and good, healthy, food choices from you! What a splendid added bonus! FYI, I've put in 12.7 miles of walking in so far this since Saturday. We had two days of rain...well, one that was supposed to rain and I did the stupid thing of waiting on it to come and go. It never came. LOL

The best recipes are those just put together on the fly, crock pots & dutch ovens are great pieces of laboratory equipment.

Great recipe! And as a fellow Minnesotan, the hot dish sounds great too. Keep warm. It's more than 20 below here in SE Minnesota.
