• When it comes to food and trying to eat healthy I sometimes get caught up in semantics. A muffin is healthier than a doughnut because they usually contain fruit, nuts, whole wheat, whatever. A doughnut doesn’t have anything going for it besides its deliciousness. If you’re like me and try to convince that little angel on your shoulder that it’s okay to indulge, just tell your the angel that this doughnut is a muffin and it’s totally okay!

Ingredients

  • For the muffins:
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
