Most muffins are over-stuffed with sugar, making them useless in anyone's muscle-building or fat-loss diet plans. But, with a few substitutions, muffins can actually have some nutritious value. These muffins have very low sugar content, combined with a high protein count, compared their store-bought brethren.


  • ¾ cup dry oatmeal
  • ¼ cup oat bran
  • 1 tbsp whole-wheat flour
  • 6 egg whites
  • 125 g fat-free cottage cheese
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp Splenda
  • ¼ cup pecans, chopped
  • 2 tbsp sugar-free maple syrup
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a blender, mix all the ingredients (except for crushed pecan). Blend until the mix gets thick.
  2. Add the crushed pecan to the mix and stir (with a spoon or a spatula).
  3. Pour the mix in a muffin tin and cook at 350 degrees F. It usually takes about 30 minutes.
  4. Quick tip: These muffins freeze well. If you make a big batch, you can freeze them and then just microwave one when you get a craving.
