Hey guys! I hope you’ve had an amazing week so far! I’m finally on my last few days of summer class and I’m super excited and relieved that I was able to knock out 12 hours in just 10 weeks! If you guys follow me on snapchat (Kellzzzzzz) you saw the mess I made making these treats last night. Lately I have been trying to come up with clean healthy recipes that I can enjoy the way I do unhealthy food. Pretty much nothing can beat my mom’s fresh from the oven blueberry muffins, but these ones are pretty darn close! I was scrolling through Instagram yesterday and saw a slow motion video of blueberry muffins being made and I tried but couldn’t manage to slide my thumb and scroll through it. After I finished watching the video it was safe to say my sweet tooth was churning up some evil ideas. I’ve always seen recipes for clean desserts on Pinterest and what not, so I thought I’d finally give it a shot!

I based my recipe off of a few others and managed to come up with my own!

Skinny Blueberry Muffins

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups of all purpose flower
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt (I probably put a little less in)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup of Truvia – 75% fewer calories per serving than sugar
  • 1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup of plain greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries
  • 2 bowls
  • 12 cup muffin pan
  • whisk
  • measuring cups/spoons

Directions:

  1. First you will want to heat your oven to 425F and spray a nonstick muffin pan down with Pam or another type of cooking spray or you can use muffin liners.
  2. Add the flour, baking powder and salt to a large bowl.
  3. Grab the second bowl and add the sugar, milk, vegetable oil, greek yogurt, and vanilla and whisk it until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Add the mixed ingredients to the first bowl with the dry ingredients and whisk until all of the ingredients are mixed together.
  5. Gently add the blueberries into the mixture.
  6. Use 1/4 measuring cup to add mixture to the pan filling each cup up about 3/4 of the way.
  7. Bake for 5 minutes at 425F and then lower the temperature to 375F and bake the muffins for 19-20 minutes or until golden.
  8. Take muffins out, let them cool for about 10 minutes and wa-lah your skinny blueberry muffins are ready!

I hope you guys can enjoy the final product as much as I did! If you have any comments or questions feel free to email me at delightfullydujour@gmail.com or comment below! Have a wonderful week loves, and as always stay delightful!

Hello loves! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I went out with friends, had a cookout, tanned, and tried to absorb as much of the beautiful weather as I could before it started storming! I was excited to share this look with you guys not only because this was the first time that I rocked the high pony without it feeling like it was going to fall out the entire time, but because I knew this was the look that I  wanted to pair with the introduction of my new page “Delightfully Delicious”. This page is going to feature all things delicious, including snacks, meals, and drinks! I will not only provide recipes to my favorite eats, but I will also review restaurants that I visit throughout my day to day life and travels.

So usually I try to eat relatively healthy and clean,but I definitely have my cheat days too. I love to eat, but who doesn’t!? I like to use my cheat days eating the best of the bad, meaning I like to cheat by going out to restaurants and experiencing new things. I can’t wait to introduce you guys to all of my favorite snacks, inside and outside of my kitchen! So let’s get started, but most of all let’s get DELICIOUS!

If you guys follow me on snapchat (Kellzzzzzz)  you know I am a huge smoothie lover. I usually start my days off with a smoothie so I thought I would introduce you guys to some of my faves! The best part about these smoothies is that they are good for you, they are delicious and everything you need is available at your local grocery store. They simply consist of vanilla almond milk, vanilla greek yogurt, and frozen fruit! So get ready, set, blend!
