Arrow Healthy Muffin Recipe Recommendations Please

I am looking for your recommendations for healthy muffin recipes. Please no recipes you have not made yourself. Also not looking for chocolate chip or dessert type muffins. I'm looking for breakfast muffins. Any help?

Here is one of my favorite breakfast muffin recipes.

Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

1 ½ cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 ½ cups buttermilk
2 eggs
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Mix oats and buttermilk. Allow them to soak for 20 minutes. Combine eggs, brown sugar, butter, rolled oat mixture, and vanilla. In a smaller bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground nutmeg. Combine the wet and dry mixtures and fold together gently until just mixed. Spoon into prepared pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on rack. Makes 12.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

Here's one that I make most often, it came off of the box of Hodgson Mill Wheat Bran. The batter keeps nicely in the fridge for two to three weeks and makes about two dozen total, so you can make a few here and there as the mood strikes you:

Bran Muffins
3 c unprocessed wheat bran
1 c boiling water
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c butter
2 1/2 c ap flour
2 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 eggs, beaten
2 c buttermilk

Mix 1 c wheat bran with 1 c boiling water; stir and let water absorb into the bran.

In a seperate bowl blend sugar and butter. Measure and combine flour, baking soda and salt. Combine the moist bran with the beaten eggs, the remaining 2 c of bran, buttermilk, blended suger-butter mixture, flour, soda and salt. Stir until well blended.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spoon batter into lightly greased muffin tins. Bake 15 minutes.

(Just stir the batter well before baking if you're using what you've stored in the fridge.)

Low-Fat Orange Cranberry Muffins

1 Tbsp baking powder
1 ½ tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 lg seedless orange, scrubbed and cut in 8 sections
1 ½ c fresh or frozen cranberries
3 lg eggs
1 ½ c applesauce
1 ½ c brown sugar, packed
¼ c chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly coat 12-cup muffin pan with vegetable shortening or fit with cupcake papers.

In large bowl, stir together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.

Place the orange in a food processor and puree. Add cranberries and pulse until coarsely chopped. Add eggs, applesauce, and brown sugar and then pulse until mixed.

Pour into dry ingredients and stir just until blended. Spoon into muffin cups. Sprinkle with walnuts. Bake 18-20 minutes or until tops spring back when touched lightly. Turn the muffins onto a wire rack to cool.

I would use Zereh's recipe, but substitute and equal amount of Splenda for the sugar, and add 2 tbs. molasses.
