A low-fat Muffin sounds good to you?

If yes, I suggest you to try on this raspberry-lime muffin.

There is no butter or eggyolk in this receipe. Moreover, low-fat yogurt is added into this muffin.

If you are on serious plan of reducing weight, you can omit streusel topping or reduce amount of sugar which add into the receipe.
My source of this receipe is from Pillsburry's best muffins & quick breads book. I got this book a long ago and I found that its receipes are quite interesting. The author did a very good job by adding a healthy hint into this book which I found very helpful on my dieting plan. As well it has nutrition information on every receipes in this book. So you know how much calories you are consuming per serve. Isn't it good?

Orange/ Lemon juice and peel may be used in place of lime. (Actually original receipe asks for lemon, since I can't find one here, so there I go with lime) If you don't like raspberry, you can add any berries of your choice.
