"For the health-conscious breakfast eater, this is a great substitute for fattier counterparts. You can use all-purpose flour in place of the wheat flour if desired. Other fruits can be substituted as well!" — Speck

2 1/4 teaspoons
fresh or frozen blueberries
I made two slight changes but they were so miniscule that it's really not a huge deal. Instead of plain water, I soaked two Celestial Seasonings honey vanilla white tea chai bags in the half cup of water I heated for about five minutes and used that to add a little oomph. I also added two tbsp. of honey. Those were the two things I noticed that people said that these muffins needed, a little spice and perhaps a little honey. The smell of these while baking was amazing and they look super fluffy and just beautiful. Mine did need just a few more minutes to bake. Half of this recipe will be for my two kids and husband and the other half will be gifted to a friend tonight. I'll update my review once I found out how everyone liked them. EDITED: They were a hit. The kids inhaled them and couldn't really tell they were sans sugar. This will be my new blueberry muffin recipe. Thank you SO much for sharing.
These muffins for me... need a little something else. I used frozen banana and blueberries, so I don't know if that was the difference or not but I miss either sugar or a pinch of salt.
I'll admit, I was a bit wary of making these because of all the reviews saying that their was no flavor. Based on my (small) changes, I rate it five stars. I think the flavor is great, I really don't miss the sugar at all, and the texture is really good too. I used apple sauce instead of the oil, subbed 1/4 cup of the flour for flaxseed meal, and added half a teaspoon of vanilla. I also halfed the recipe, so the measurements are based on that.
I was expecting no taste and was pleasantly surprised. For a no-sugar recipe, I think these came out amazing. The key to the flavor is ripe bananas and delicious fresh blueberries.
Curiosity! I just had to try this one out for curiosity’s sake and let me tell you, whole wheat and no sugar was a bit of a culture shock for me. I made sure to use overripe bananas and ripe blueberries to give it some sweetness. They were really moist and better on the second day. However, I just couldn't overcome the blandness. I even added extra blueberries, cinnamon, and nutmeg and still nothing. Next time I will try with a little honey. This recipe will really make you stop and think about how dependent we are on sweeteners in one form or another.
My husband is a diabetic so I'm always looking for no sugar muffins. These are pretty darn good. I had some really juicy, sweet blueberries which I think really help. I did use a bit less soda, and baking powder. I also added about a teaspoon of my homemade pumpkin pie spice. Without this added spice it's probably boring. The batter was really thick so next time I think I'll give it just a small amount of liquid sweetener. I only got 12 regular size muffins & needed 2 more minutes in the oven. Next time I'll add some walnuts for even more nutrition. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Remarkably good. I did add some (1/4 c) soy protein powder & fiber to bump it up for my weight loss program. Also didn't have any blueberries, but added the equiv. in cherries (20). Still a great combo and tasty.
Great recipe! Since there is no added sugar, you would think that the muffins wouldn't be very sweet. But, they are very tasty and healthy! My children wanted to eat 3 of them for breakfast! I frequently make banana bread and muffins...this recipe is much healthier and you don't miss the sugar!
