    Three mornings/week I do Dance Aerobics and next week I am having this group of women over to my house for coffee and chit chat. They are coming straight from exercise class. I really hate to sabotage everyone's great efforts to stay healthy, but really want to treat them to something yummy. My experience has been that the words "yummy" and "healthy" do not always fit in the same sentence. Can anyone help me out with a tasty recipe for coffee cake that is not filled with empty calories? I really would like to make a yummy coffee cake, but muffins or quick bread would also be a thought.

    Don't have a specific recipe in mind, but years ago had one for muffins made with rolled oats and natural applesauce in place of oil. They were really good, and healthy. Try a google search, might be able to find something similar.

    I completely forgot about this bread. It is delicious. It would be good with a coffee drink or a smoothie of your choice to. I want some now!!

    A box of Devil's Food Cake mix (or, carrot cake), 1 can of pumpkin, 2 tablespoons of applesauce. Mix together, put in muffin tin. Bake 20 minutes @ 400 degrees. I really like these the second day. My friend likes them with cream cheese frosting. This is a Weight Watcher recipe, 2 points, I think.

    Yum! This WW recipe sounds like a real keeper. I like the idea of using carrot cake. I doubt that I would frost the muffins. Thanks so much ... everyone ... for your suggestions.

    Nita, I entered a muffin recipe that should appear on the next Quilter's Message Board. Hope you will try it, because it is really good! However may not be the healthy recipe you wanted.

    Thanks .... I'll check it out. I'm just trying to keep the carbs & fat to a minimal amount. No way do I expect to come up with something 100% "healthy' that is yummy as well.

    Just found this one earlier. It is from COOKING LIGHT. Sounds awesome.

    Oat Bran Muffins

    YIELD: 28 muffins (serving size: 1 muffin)

    Ingredients
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1 3/4 cups oat bran
    3/4 cup packed brown sugar
    1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
    1/4 cup flaxseed
    4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 cups shredded carrot
    2 cups chopped Granny Smith apple
    1 cup raisins
    1 cup fat-free milk
    1/4 cup canola oil
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    3 large egg whites
    1 thin-skinned orange, unpeeled and quartered
    Cooking spray
    Preparation
    Preheat oven to 375.

    Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours and the next 8 ingredients (all-purpose flour through salt) in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Stir in carrot, apple, and raisins.

    Combine milk, oil, vanilla, egg whites, and orange in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Make a well in center of flour mixture; add milk mixture; stir just until moist.

    Spoon 3 tablespoons batter into each of 28 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake in batches at 375 for 20 minutes or until muffins are browned and spring back when touched lightly in center. Remove the muffins from pans immediately, and place on a wire rack.
