As I was cleaning out my freezer the other day I realized I had like 5 bags of frozen fruit from when I was on a smoothie kick a few months ago. So since I had way to much frozen fruit taking up space in my freezer, I decided to use it to make some fruit muffins. Most of the fruit I had frozen was strawberries and blueberries so that’s what I used. I pretty much just threw what I had on hand for the recipe and thankfully it all came together! Here is the recipe:
- 2 cups of flour (whole wheat would work just as well)
- 1 cup of stevia (all natural sweetener, pours just like sugar)
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1/2 cup of butter, softened
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup of half and half
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (optional)
- 2 cups of strawberries and blueberries
First combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a medium bowl and stir. In a large bowl beat the butter and stevia together then add vanilla. Add the eggs in one at a time and stir between each one. After eggs are mixed well, stir in half of the flour mixture and then half of the cream(half and half). Do this till both are gone. Just stir enough to were everything is mixed. Don’t overly stir! Next, add the fruit and gently fold the berries in. I added about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to make it extra yummy. Grease a muffin tin and fill about half way full with batter. Bake for about 20 min or until golden at 375 degrees.
I was skeptical at first if these muffins would even turn out since I used stevia instead of sugar but to my surprise they were perfect! Jordan hates strawberries and he even gobbled them up!
