I was forced to improvise some ingredients in my usual muffin recipe this morning, and boy was I glad! These were seriously good (my husband had 8 of them in one sitting) and you would never guess they are healthy. Makes a baker's dozen (or 12 biggies).
- 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup oatmeal
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup nonfat milk (soured with vinegar)
- 1 tablespoon applesauce
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 2 egg whites
- 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Make a well in the center of the mix and add wet ingredients.
- Mix just until combined, then fold in berries.
- Bake 18-20 minutes at 400.
With a few tweaks, these could be pretty tasty. I made these the other night, with only a couple changes: one whole egg, 2 T canola oil instead of the oil and applesauce called for (I wanted to use butter, but didn't have any that wasn't frozen, lol), and added a t of vanilla, and about 1/2 t almond extract. I also sprinkled the tops with sugar before putting them in the oven. The texture of these muffins is pretty good, but they had very little flavor. I was very glad I put the sugar on top, because that definitely helped. Next time, I will use butter, and probably add a bit more sugar and extracts. Oh, and I also soured the milk with lemon juice instead of vinegar, and I ended up with 11 muffins, rather than 13. Will probably make these again in the future.
Not sure what happened, but these muffins had absolutely no taste. They don't taste BAD...there's just no taste. I followed the recipe exactly so I'm not sure what happened. Thanks for sharing anyway!
Followed your recipe right on down & used frozen berries (Still haven't found great looking fresh blueberries anywhere around these past 2 weeks!) & the muffins were very nice ~ Easy to make & great on the taste buds (& the waist, for that matter!) Thanks for sharing this great keeper! [Made & reviewed as a THANK YOU for playing with us in Please Review My Recipe during the recent tour]
