- (generous) 1 1/2 cups

- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp allspice
- generous 1/2 cup

LowFat Blueberry Muffins
Preheat oven to 375 F / 190C.
Place 12 muffin paper liners in a muffin pan.
Sift the flour, baking soda, salt and half the allspice into a large mixing bowl. Add 6 tablespoons of the superfine sugar and mix together.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites together. Add the margarine, yogurt and the vanilla extract and mix well together, then stir in the blueberries until thoroughly mixed. Add the flour mixture then gently stir together until just combined. Do not overstir the batter – it is fine for it to be a bit lumpy.
Divide the muffin batter evenly among the paper liners ( 2/3 full ) Mix the remaining sugar with the remaining allspice, then sprinkle the mixture over the muffins.
Bake in a pre-heated oven for 25 minutes or until risen and golden. Remove the muffins from the oven and serve warm, or place on a wire rack to cool.
HINT: Raspberries do quite well in place of blueberries with this recipe.
