Mmm Muffins!

Here they finally are, my protein muffin experiment! These ones turned out better than previous attempts because I didn't modify them so much and didn't beat them to a quivering pulp.
I used:
2 cups self raising flour
1 cup Splenda granules
1/4 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup oats
140g applesauce
6 egg whites
1 cup skim milk
100g raspberries
1 apple grated
3 scoops Redbak Soy Protein (whey protein does not cook well at all, but soy protein can take a bit of a beating)
vanilla essence
Mix wet and dry ingredients and cook in a moderate oven until done (yes, I am hopeless at timing). One muffin comes in at 120cals 19.3g carbs, 8.2g protein, 0.6g fat.
They are certainly a nice morning tea alternative for when you feel like something treat like, but still relatively good for you in the whole scheme of "baked goods".
I just peeped over at Kerryn's blog at her "Six Weird Things You Didn't Know About Me" and I was absolutely amazed to read that she had mutant toes as well. Actually my toenails are mutant - some of my toe nails are kind of concave which makes trimming them difficult and a pedicure visit a slight embarrassment.
I can't say that I can twist my tongue sideways though!
At least you all have one weird thing to associate me with. I'm sure I can come up with others, but they aren't going to sit too well with a picture of muffins.
Training today involved Kenpo X, a 30 minute swim (felt very good today) and a 30minute run. I didn't really feel like Kenpo this morning but I got up and did it anyway. Yeah me! I know it's because the sun is starting to rise a bit later, but I still insist on getting up at 5am anyway.

They look GOOD, Liz! The trick with muffins is definitely to mix them a lot less than you think you should. Unless you like them tough.
