We added dry crisp rice cereal to the muffin batter to add low-calorie volume. Try sprinkling crispy rice cereal over a light brownie batter to give volume too. You may find yourself reaching for one of these muffins for both breakfast and dessert. We love using fresh raspberries in this batter, but you can also substitute blueberries, blackberries, or boysenberries if you have them on hand. For a unique flavor boost, stir 1/4 teaspoon of ground mace into the flour mixture. If you can't find whole wheat self-rising flour, simply mix together 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour with 2 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
