Skinny blueberry cinnamon muffins

My mum has been on a diet for as long as I can remember, so has asked me if I could please stop baking tempting treats, but of course I told her this is an outrage! I can’t possibly stop baking, so for her, I am making a lower calorie ‘skinny’ blueberry muffin so she can enjoy a treat but still try and lose weight.

I love that the batter goes a really nice purply colour with the blueberries in it! If you want to substitute the blueberries for a different type of berry, that would work as well and taste just as scrummy!

Each muffin contains 170 calories, if you make 12 with the recipe, and if you are doing the slimming world diet, each one has 8.5 syns on the extra easy diet šŸ™‚
