"Oh my gosh, these are so good!" "Really good, Mom!"
"Awesome muffins!' "Top Notch!'
Can I do much better than that? I don't think so. It is rare in my house that everyone like something, so when it happens, I revel in it. Here's my recipe. Enjoy!
Yummy Blueberry Muffins
1 1/4 cups flour (I use only whole wheat pastry flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg white
1 cup applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1 cup blueberries ( I used Trader Joe's frozen organic blueberries0
1/4 cup my homemade grain-ola (storebought granola will also work or just rolled oats)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tablespoon melted butter
1 Tbsp whole wheat flour
1. Preheat an oven to 400. Grease a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Whisk together 1 1/2 cups oatmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl and set aside.
2. Whisk 1/2 cup brown sugar, egg white, applesauce, and milk together in a mixing bowl until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture and blueberries till moistened. Pour the batter into the muffin pan. Stir the topping ingredients in a small bowl, mixing with a fork. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the muffins.
3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle, about 20-25 minutes depending on your oven. Cool at least 10 minutes and then remove from muffin pan. Makes 12 muffins.
*Fresh blueberries can be used if you like.
*When you mix in the frozen blueberries your batter will change colors, and that's okay. They will still cook up all nice and golden brown.
*Granola is best to use for the tpping because it creates a crunchier crust which works well with the moist, soft muffins.
