A few years back, I posted a cinnamon toast muffin recipe….it is a favorite around here. I wanted to revisit that recipe and take out some of the sugar—but yet keep the texture and sweetness. It is such a good muffin to have with your morning coffee. I reduced the amount of sugar I was eating last year…and I am proud to say that I have kept the 20 lbs that I lost off…and I feel so much better. Minor changes can make the greatest impact. These muffins are just 5 smartpoints…pair is up with some fresh fruit, coffee and an egg white and you have a fulfilling breakfast—that is low points, low sugar and high on taste:)

Basic ingredients…nothing too fancy….mix wet and dry—be careful to not over mix. A little sprinkle of raw sugar before baking will give it just a bit of crunch…and sweetness.

I actually dusted off the ole’ camera for this post. I realized how much I missed taking photos with an actual camera. My phone has been my go-to for posting….but I love the camera close up and detail….
