Featuring three types of peppers and a hint of basil, these tender muffins are perfect with chicken. I trimmed down the original recipe to make them low in fat and cholesterol. -Karen Shipp of San Antonio, Texas


  • 1/4 cup each chopped green pepper, sweet yellow pepper and sweet red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1 cup fat-free milk


  1. In a nonstick skillet, saute peppers in butter until tender; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and basil. Whisk the egg, egg substitute and milk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the peppers.
  2. Coat muffin cups with cooking spray; fill two-thirds full with batter. Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm.
