Low-Calorie Whole Grain Strawberry Muffins

I took a Myers-Briggs test a couple of days ago.

Have you ever taken one of those? They are pretty fascinating. So, it’s for my Management Nutrition class. We evaluated ourselves in relation to what we thought we were as the words were described to us by the instructor. Then, we ‘graded’ our actual Myers-Briggs test that we filled out.

I thought I was ISFJ – Introvert. Sensing. Feeling. Judging. And before I continue, judging means ‘organized and structured’ rather than what you’re thinking. Just to clarify. Promise – judge free zone here.

Turns out I am ESFJ. Essentially the same, except Extrovert. I’m okay with that. And honestly, the more we learned, the more I realized that’s right. Introverts become energized or ‘refilled’ by alone time. Extroverts become pumped up by being around people. You put me in a room by myself – I will fall asleep. Myers-Briggs, how are you so right? So weird, but so right. Like it knows us.

You should do one. You should also make these muffins. These muffins are DELICIOUS. And only have about 115 calories per serving! Maybe 120… definitely less than 150 calories. Depending on if you use all the batter or take a couple spoonfuls to taste-test. But this was using a nutrition calculator [I think I got about 117 calories each] and making 6 muffins. So, if you make 7 muffins, they would be even fewer calories!
