Healthy Muffin Tops?

You hear “muffin top” and you immediately think of the unwanted fat that sticks out of people’s too-tight jeans. But here’s a fun baking ‘toy’ to have fun with and help lose your muffin top. These silicon shapes are placed on top of a muffin before going in the oven to give it a fun muffin top shape including diamond shaped tops, bundt shaped tops and simple circular shaped tops. The best thing about this is that the baking mold forms a little crevice in the middle of the top which you can stuff with anything from fresh cream to fruit. I have started using these and am now OBSESSED! My two favorite muffins to make are banana-chocolate muffins, and blueberry muffins.

To make the banana chocolate muffins:

1 1/2 cup of oats

3/4 cups of flour (all-purpose of whole grain)

1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

2-3 bananas

1 tablespoon of baking powder

a pinch of salt

1/2 cup of milk

1 egg


cinnamon (if desired)

Mix the oats, flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, bananas, baking powder, salt, milk and the egg, then bake in the oven at 180 degrees celsius for 18- 20 minutes. For blueberry muffins, mix 1 1/2 cups of oats, 3/4 cups of flour (all-purpose or whole grain), 1 cup of milk, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, and as many blueberries as you want, then bake in the oven at 180 degrees celsius for 18- 20 minutes. If you want a little bit of a spiciness, sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top before sticking them in the oven.

Both these muffin recipes are healthy, easy, and delicious options for a quick and healthy breakfast on the go; plus, who doesn’t love fun shaped muffin tops?!
