So these started as blueberry coconut muffins. But someone forgot to add blueberries in before topping them off with a dollop of coconut and popping them into the oven.
It totally wasn't me, but that's okay: the mistake has left me with a new healthy muffin to enjoy!
Yes, it's true, they are healthy; whole grain, no added fat (well, except for the teaspoon in the topping), and low in sugar. They will taste horrible you say? You MUST have butter? Just give them a little try, won’t you? Humor me once? And then I promise you'll be coming back for more.
I guess I should have started with an introduction. My name is Steph, and I love to chow, but I also like to fight my genetic predisposition of being short and round, so I started the blog steph chows, which focuses on healthy eating that tastes good.
Sure, you'll also find some adorable wheaten terrier photos there, and random crochet and sewing projects, but I know you'll be coming back for the recipes. Because once you start eating healthy things that taste this good... you'll be back for seconds.
NOTE: You'll notice I use Splenda for some of my baked recipes. This comes from a habit of making diabetic friendly treats. I don't use it in all my stuff and I always have a white sugar substitution for those who don't like using it.
