Print this recipe
Muffins are the quintessential breakfast treat. They're simple, easy to grab when you're in a hurry, and (when done right) the perfect bite of sweet or savory to get your day off to a beautiful start. But, muffins are also on most diet's no-no list. That's about to change.
These recipes take some of the most popular muffin flavors and healthify them so that you can enjoy them guilt-free.
1. Healthy lemon poppy seed muffins (h/t Nourish your Glow)
You'll still want to skip any drug screenings after eating a few of these, but swapping out regular flour for coconut flour adds lots of protein and healthy fat. The recipe also calls for Maca powder, which is said to contain healthy vitamins and minerals like calcium, vitamin B2, vitamin C, and manganese.
2. The perfect blueberry muffin (h/t Well Plated)
Have these beautiful bites of sweetness on your table in just 30 minutes! Whole wheat flour, rolled outs, and blueberries combine to create a muffin with only 149 calories and 5 grams of protein.
3. Easy raspberry and yogurt muffin (h/t This Mama Cooks)
These are likely the prettiest muffins you'll ever see. You can replace the eggs in traditional recipes (and some of the sugar) with the raspberry yogurt. The creaminess of the yogurt helps produce perfectly moist bites with 160 calories per muffin and only six grams of fat.
4. Ultimate healthy chocolate chip mini muffin (h/t Amy's Healthy Baking)
Healthy chocolate muffins are not a myth. Each mini-muffin is only 39 (yes, you read that right) calories. These bite-sized dark-chocolate wonders are the perfect way to get rid of sugary cravings without killing your calorie count.
5. Healthy banana oatmeal muffins (h/t Gimme Delicious Food)
Stuffed with whole wheat flour, oatmeal, bananas, and honey these sweet bready bites are simple to throw together and light on the unhealthy ingredients. I love that this recipe uses olive oil instead of vegetable oil.
6. The classic corn muffin (h/t Chocolate Covered Katie)
Who doesn't love a good corn muffin? Whether you want to grab one for breakfast or eat it with your chili, this recipe helps you accomplish your goal with a few adjustments. Healthy swaps include using applesauce instead of oil and keeping added sugar to just two tablespoons.

There's something to be said for finding a good snack food. Especially one that's easy to prepare. But, when you're trying to eat a little healthier, fast snacks aren't always the best option.

Is there anything more beautiful than a good sandwich? As a bread lover, I insist that there is no such thing. The unfortunate thing about sandwiches is that it's too easy to make them a little too unhealthy.

The creamy avocado is a new favorite on my fruit list (yup, it's a fruit. Actually, it's a berry.) Speaking of which, did you know that fruit is defined as the mature ovary of a flower? Yikes. Glad they don't print that on the label.
