Just as a note, I think this blog will expand from just recipes to restaurants, activities, and whatever random things are on my mind. But before I do that, here’s another recipe!! 🙂
I adapted this recipe from Eat Better America – BLUEBERRY MUFFINS!!!! I was sliiiightly nervous just because it was a new recipe, and oh yeah…I planned to take them to work for the “outside guys” to devour…which they did, I might add 😉 So with no further ado, I present to you zeeeeee muffins:
Before you do anything, please preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and either grease some muffin tins or put paper-liners in muffin tins…’cause no one likes to forget those!
First, throw about 2 tbsp of packed brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon in a bowl…and mix like crazy! This is the topping…and the photos I took didn’t come close to turning out, so use your imaginations 🙂
Next up, beat skim milk, apple sauce, honey and one egg with spoon until well blended.
Okay, now stir in whole wheat flour, white flour, baking powder and salt just until moistened…the batter should be kinda lumpy!
And now, gggeeeeennnntttllllyyyy stir in those lovely blueberries.
Now, spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups. Then, dot each muffin-to-be with a bit of butter, and sprinkle some of the brown sugar-cinnamon topping on each.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden, until the delicious aroma is slowly pulling you towards the oven or…a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean. It’s up to you 😉 And heeeere is the final product!
And just to make you drool…..
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup skim milk
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup honey
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup frozen (or fresh) blueberries
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees, grease muffin tins or place paper liners in muffin tins.
2. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
3. In a large bowl, mix milk, applesauce, honey and egg with a spoon until well blended.
4. To the wet ingredients, add both flours, baking powder and salt. Mix until just combined – the batter will be lumpy.
5. Carefully stir in the blueberries.
6. Spoon batter into muffin tins, dot with butter and sprinkle topping.
7. Bake 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean.
