I have been pretty busy but would still want to have something delicious to start my day. Lemon Blueberry Muffin comes to mind and it is really very easy to make! Make it the night before and enjoy it on the go the next morning! I often bring extra to school to share with my friends and they loved it. It’s such an easy recipe to make, literally, you could make this with just one large bowl. Yet, how comforting it could be in the morning, especially when you know your day will be busy.

If you ask me, muffin or cupcake, I would always go for muffins. They are simple, delicious and buttery. I never like the rich and greasy cream of a cupcake and muffin is the way to go. In the past, I tried to create cupcake recipes for my viewers as they request. But, I never really enjoy having it. To share a recipe, I feel, must come from the heart. If I share something I don’t like, why bother sharing?

I hope you will enjoy making the recipe as much as I do. Being able to share a recipe that I really love, is my way of showing how I live my life and how I cook in the kitchen. I hope it will always inspire you all to eat well and stay happy. 🙂

Low-Fat Almond Muffins

IMG_9277EditedSuper simple Low-Fat Almond Muffins!
IMG_9270Edited I really like this muffin recipe because not only it is so simple, it is also light and refreshing. These muffins have a subtly nutty sweet flavor due to the combination of almonds and apple together.
IMG_9274EditedMake it gluten-free by using all ground almonds instead of plain flour.

I have used my homemade applesauce for this recipe.
