Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins
made it with unsweetened vanilla almond milk instead of skim milk and used splenda brown sugar blend instead of brown sugar. added 2 tsp vital wheat gluten, used all whole wheat flour and used almost a pint of fresh blueberries. it is very healthy low-calorie and moist from the blueberries and applesauce. only reason that I did not give it a 5 star--in presentation it is not as beautiful as a blueberry muffin made with white flour and no bran.

Blueberry Coffee Cake II
baked it on a Friday night and invited a friend over Saturday afternoon to have this recipe with coffee. Only change--substituted apple sauce for oil and added extra applesauce and blueberries to make batter more moist. Friend loved it and we had it with a side dish of strawberries. Stays moist a bit longer also because of the applesauce. Would recommend the recipe for anyone during fresh blueberries season. May try with frozen blueberries if fresh are not in season. if using frozen berries--toss with some flour first. loved the easy to make streusel type topping. hope others will try this recipe too. definitely a new favorite.

Almond, Apple Cinnamon Scones
they just came out of the oven. I added an extra tsp of vanilla, 1 tsp of cinnammon and greek yogurt with a little half and half and used butter instead of shortening -- then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar before baking. I ommited the almonds except for the extract. It came out okay and the apples with the almond extract and cinnamon is a nice combination. They do not really look very attractive but the taste is fine. I made them as drop scones. Next time I may add more flour and make them into biscuits, but drop scones have more moisture which is nice. I would recommend the recipe when you are in the mood to make something sweet.
