Decadent Dessert: Albino Muffins

Happy Sunday Friends!

I'd like to share another one of my favorite recipes with you: albino muffins. Now, I'm sure you're thinking, "Why on earth would anyone name a recipe THAT?!" Well, it's pretty simple; because they're white!

These muffins are moist and sweet, but not dense like a traditional muffin. They are low in sugar and fat, so they satisfy your sweet tooth without sacrificing your skinny jeans. The batter is pretty standard so you can put literally anything in them: dried fruit, chocolate, nuts, candy, oats, granola, seeds etc. Plus they bake in 12 minutes so you don't have to slave away over a hot oven all afternoon (Huzzah! More time to watch Game of Thrones).
Here's the plan, man:

Albino Muffins


1 3/4 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
3 1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp real vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup of your favorite mix-in (I used equal parts white and dark chocolate chips)
Cooking spray and/or muffin pan liners


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Prepare your muffin pan by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray and/or filling it with muffin pan liners.
In a large bowl sift all dry ingredients together. In a separate smaller bowl, combine all wet ingredients and mix well. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and whisk until well-combined (it will be a little lumpy). Add your mix-ins and stir until well-distributed. Spoon the batter into your muffin pan (each one should be about 2/3 filled). Bake for 12 minutes.
That's it y'all! Easy peasy. Now you have a simple and yummy dessert, snack or breakfast that everyone will enjoy!
