As promised, I am posting the recipe to my hopefully-famous-one-day “bruffins.”
What’s a bruffin?
Well, it’s a cross between a brownie and a muffin. My husband came up with this clever name, and while it doesn’t sound very appetizing, the name has stuck around the Heddleston household.
- 1 cup applesauce
- 1/2 cup Splenda Sugar Blend (white)
- 1/2 cup Splenda Sugar Blend (brown)
- 4 eggs
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1 3/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour
- 2 tsp xanthan gum
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/3 peanut butter chips
Preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together. The batter will be thick like a brownie. Scoop batter into the muffin tins, about 3/4 full for each. Bake for 20 minutes. Makes two dozen.
I’m sure this recipe would work fine with regular white and brown sugar–I just try to decrease the calories when I can. I assume that this recipe would work fine if all Splenda instead of the Splenda blends (to further decrease the calories). Additionally, to decrease the calories even more, you may try to replace the 4 eggs with 1 cup of egg whites (such as Egg Beaters or a generic brand). I’ve done this with another recipe, but not this one yet.
Please post a comment if you bake this recipe! I’d love to know what you think!
