Healthy Blueberry Muffins

A Muffin That Targets Belly Fat? Gwyneth Paltrow's Blueberry Option Is It

Not wanting to live without her mom's blueberry muffins, actress Gwyneth Paltrow gave the classic recipe a healthy makeover. What's left is a muffin with fewer calories, less saturated fat, and lower cholesterol. Gone are the dairy and processed sugar, leaving a satisfying breakfast treat that is literally bursting with antioxidant-rich blueberries — yes, those same blueberries that have been shown to target pesky belly fat. As if the blueberries weren't enough to appreciate, Gwyneth opts for iron-rich maple syrup as a sweetener and whole grain flour over the white stuff. A muffin that actually fights the dreaded muffin top? We'll take two.
