Kiwi Muffins (or any fruit, really!)

In an effort to eat less sugar but still get my baked goods fix, I have turned from my ridiculous pies of late, to muffins with healthy substitutions. I think I will give myself credit for this one – even though I used white flour. I replaced the sugar with honey and the canola oil (really?? people still use this stuff??) with applesauce. The results were delicious! My only recommendation is to not use muffin liners – I suppose it’s the lack of oil in the recipe, but the liners stick to the muffins.

  • 8 kiwi, peeled & diced (or 2 cups of chopped fruit of your choice)
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup applesauce

Preheat the oven to 375F. Grease a muffin pan. Mix the dry ingredients together. In a seperate bowl mix the wet ingredients. Add the wet to the dry along with the fruit, being careful not to overmix. Fill the muffin cups and bake for 15 minutes or until tops begin to turn brown and a fork comes out clean.
