Blueberry and Jam Muffins With Lemon Zest Streusel
Preheat oven to 375°. Spray standard muffin tins with nonfat cooking spray. Place muffin liners in cups and spray liners. or fill with muffin liners. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine the cup of blueberries and teaspoon of sugar, mashing completely with the back of a spoon or the bottom of a flat bottomed glass or cup. Stir over low heat till hot, them let simmer about 5 minutes or until the mixture becomes a thick jam. Set aside to cool.
Our favorite way to serve these delectable muffins, is spit and top each half with a spoonful of lightly sweetened homemade fat free ricotta. MMMM good!
*As a substitute for burtermilk or sour milk, put 1 Tablespoon vinegar ina cup and fill the rest of the way with fat free milk. For this recipe you can prepare 1 teaspoon vinegar in a cup with1/3 cup milk. You will have extra. Just discard or save for another purpose.
