Guilt-free Popover Muffins Recipe

muffinsCrisp yet so fluffy

These popovers are crisp on the outside, nicely moist within. Using egg whites and fat-free milk make this favorite comfort food guilt-free.


Makes 6 servings, one popover

1 cup fat-free milk
1 cup all-purpose (plain) flour
¼ teaspoon salt
4 egg whites


Heat the oven to 425 F. Generously coat 6 large metal or glass muffin molds with cooking spray. Heat the muffin molds in the oven for two minutes.

In a large bowl, add the milk, flour, salt and egg whites. Using an electric mixer, beat until smooth. Fill the heated muffin molds 2/3 full. Bake in the top part of the oven until golden brown and puffy, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.

Dietitians Tip - Make cheese popovers by topping each cup with 1 teaspoon Parmesan cheese before cooking. The Parmesan cheese adds 7 calories, a trace amount of fat and cholesterol, and 25 milligrams of sodium to each popover.
