Sugar Free Muffins Snacks Blueberry

Sugar free muffins are easy to make and great to store. Sealed in an airtight container, they will keep for a few days, making them ideal for packed lunches or snacks.

Served cold, they make a great accompaniment to a cup of tea, and served warm, they can be delicious puddings. They also work well when served with cream or sugar free ice-cream or custard.

There are a number of ways of making muffins without using sugar. Honey, fruit, jam or granulated sweetener can all be used. Here are just a few examples of what is, in fact, a very versatile recipe.

Blueberry Muffins

An American favourite, blueberry muffins are also now extremely popular in the UK and other European countries. The soft fruit contrasts beautifully with the light sponge. This recipe calls for honey as a sweetener.

Ingredients:

  • 150g (5oz) butter
  • 150g (5oz) plain flour
  • Four tbsp honey
  • Three medium eggs
  • One tsp baking powder
  • 150g (4.5oz) blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Method:

Preheat your oven to 200 deg C/400 deg F/gas mark six. Melt your butter and honey in a small pan over a low heat. Sieve your flour and baking powder into a large bowl and stir in your warm liquid. Beat your eggs then stir them in. Very gently fold your blueberries into the mixture. Take your muffin cases and place a generous spoonful of your mixture into each one. Then bake for about 20 minutes until risen and golden on top.

Banana Muffins

Sugar free banana muffins are delicious when newly baked and served fresh from the oven. Try them when drizzled with hot sugar free custard.

Ingredients:

  • 250ml full fat milk
  • Two eggs
  • Four ripe bananas
  • 150g (5oz) plain flour
  • One tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Half tsp baking powder

Method:

Preheat your oven to 200 deg C/400 deg F/gas mark six. Peel your ripe bananas and mash them in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, beat your eggs. Stir the eggs and milk into the bananas. Puree with a hand blender. Sieve your flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder, and fold into the batter. Spoon a generous amount of the mixture into each muffin case. Bake for 20 minutes, until risen and golden brown. These sugar free banana muffins are delicious when served with fresh cream.

Strawberry And Vanilla Muffins

A delicious summer recipe, these sugar free muffins are scrumptious. They are best served with fresh cream or even sugar free ice-cream. Those who do not like strawberries can simply leave them out of the recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 150g (5oz) butter
  • 150g (5oz) plain flour
  • Two tbsp granulated sweetener
  • Two medium eggs
  • One tsp vanilla essence
  • One tsp baking powder
  • 150g (4.5oz) strawberries

Method:

Preheat your oven to 200 deg C/400 deg F/gas mark six. Cream your butter and granulated sweetener in a large bowl. Beat your eggs separately, then mix them in. Wash and hull your strawberries. Chop into quarters and add to the mixture. Sieve your flour and baking powder, and stir in. Place a generous spoonful of your mixture into each muffin case and bake for about 20 minutes until risen and golden on top.

Wanted plain muffins...Made the blueberry muffins (without blueberries) and could taste too much honey. But the next batch we made, we just added a bit of vanilla essence and its great! Tastes exactly like regular muffins but without the regular sugar! ?? Thank you for sharing these recipes ??????

I was disappointed at the outcome.There was butter bubbling out of the cases and they tasted of nothing. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless you wan't waste some food.

Hello, I have to say that I am hugely disappointed with the quality of these muffins, I had high expectations of delicious, fluffy muffins with no added sugar. However these expectations were not met, I opened the oven after 20 minutes to find that they were completely undercooked, having replaced them for a further 20 minutes the outsides were a golden brown colour and they looked delicious, but when I pulled the skewer out to test if they were cooked, the entire soggy interior of the muffin came out too. Have tasted a cooled muffin they are disgusting with hints of baking powder and a soggy mess. Would not recommend to anyone ever.

@Glennifer. Glad you liked it. Great idea to use applesauce.

My daughters loved it, but I used apple sauce instead of honey because it makes them so moist and I used less butter to stay on the heathy side. But they were amazing!

I have given up sugar, this includes honey and fructose only in fresh fruit, I don't use sweeteners as they're as bad as sugar. These recipes are not very helpful and, to people who don't research, appear to be healthy when their not really.

Don't use honey, as it is worse than sugar.I use honey to sweeten things for my husband who is sugar and sweetener intolerant.My sister in law used it for her husband who is diabetic, and nearly killed him!!!His sugar levels went sky high.I have found a jam called St Dalfour which is sweetend with fruit juices.My husband can have this but I don't know if it is o.k. for diabetics better to check with a doctor.

@Bernie - yes honey and jam are not good for diabetics.
