Ripplecove's Light Berry Muffins

“I got this recipe during my stay at beautiful Ripplecove's Inn in Ayer's cliff, Quebec, Canada. Every morning, the chef made these healthy and delicicous light muffins. I tried to do the same at home and here is the recipe! As sour cream is used instead of grease for less fat, the muffins don't stay fresh as long as regular muffins. Eat them the same day you bake them and freeze leftovers. Bon appetit!”
12 small muffins
