Okay, so this isn't a muffin, but it's probably my favorite healthyish quick bread recipe I've made recently. It's moist and gingery and very easy to make. You could also make this into muffins, just decrease the cooking time by about 15 minutes or so.
Applesauce GingerbreadMakes 12 servings1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 Ĺ tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup molasses
2 egg whites
3 tblsp skim milk
2 tblsp vegetable oil
2 tblsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350.
Lightly oil an 8-inch square baking pan or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine both types of flour, baking soda, ginger, and cinnamon. Mix well.
In another bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Beat with a fork or wire whisk until blended. Add to dry mixture, mixing until all ingredients are moistened. Place in prepared pan.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into squares and serve warm for best flavor.
