Maple Spice Muffins and Giveaway

Today I am featuring “Double Delicious! Good, Simple Food for Busy, Complicated Lives” by Jessica Seinfeld. What a great cookbook.  Especially for families with kids.  Jessica finds ways to make ordinary foods extraordinary by loading them up with healthy ingredients, such as pureed vegetables and fruits.  She also uses healthy ingredients that you can add to make everyday food even better by adding whole grains to baked goods and boosts sweetness without a lot of sugar.

For example these Maple Spice Muffins have no sugar in them, uses whole grain and they are 198 calories per muffin.  You would never have guessed.  In some of her other recipes she has for example sweet potato puree in her Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and Cauliflower Puree in Lemon Bars.  So imaginative.  I think every family should have this cookbook.

Also Jessica was recently interviewed by Gwyneth Paltrow on Goop, it is a great interveiw and also a link to a Jessica’s website and a few more recipes.

Maple Spice Muffins

Yields: 12 muffins | Prep: 20 minutes | Bake: 25 minutes

Nonstick cooking spray
¼ cup trans-fat-free soft tub margarine spread
½ cup pure maple syrup
1 (6 oz) container of low-fat lemon yogurt
½ cup nonfat sour cream
1 large egg
1 large carrot, washed and grated
1 small apple, grated
½ cup raisins
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 ½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ground clove
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350F. Coat a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper baking cups.

In a large bowl, stir the margarine, maple syrup, yogurt, sour cream, egg, carrot, apple, and raisins, breaking up the margarine with a spoon.

Sprinkle the 2 types of flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, clove, and salt over the margarine mixture. Stir until just combined, but do not over mix – the batter is supposed to be lumpy.

Divide the batter among the muffin cups. Bake until the tops of the muffins are lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center, 20 to 25 minutes. Turn the muffins out onto a rack to cool.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or wrap individually and freeze for up to 1 month.
