Clean Eating Recipe of the Week-Strawberry Orange Muffins

I had this yummy recipe in my e-mail yesterday so I decided to make them:) I changed a few ingredients but overall kept it the same. They were delicious!!! I enjoyed one for breakfast along with some scrambled egg whites, yummy!


3 large egg whites
3/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt (I used vanilla because it's what I had)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup canola oil
1 orange , zested or 1/2 tsp Fioro Di Sicilia (I love this stuff, it has a citrus, vanilla aroma)
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract (do not need if using Fioro Di Sicilia)
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup Sucanat
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 cup sliced strawberries


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place muffin papers in 12-cup muffin tin or spray with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, Sucanat, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg whites, yogurt, applesauce, canola oil, zest and vanilla. Pour wet ingredienta in with the dry and stir just short of being combined. Gently stir in the strawberries, mix just until combined.

Divide batter among 12 muffin cups. Bake until tops are golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before removing from tray.
