Homemade whole-wheat blueberry muffins

So good my 2 year old couldn’t wait for me to snap a picture…he was already trying to grab one! 😀

 

One thing I really enjoying doing with my kiddos is baking! We have a good time trying new recipes, alternating old recipes and mostly trying the finished product! Muffins are always a great treat! And this recipe is so yummy! You can alter it to make so many variations it’s always a new recipe. Here is the recipe we love to use:

 

From: www.100daysofrealfood.com

SERVES: MAKES 12 MUFFINS

INGREDIENTS

  • 1½ cups whole-wheat flour (I used King Arthur’s white whole-wheat flour)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon all spice
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup oil (I used coconut oil)
  • ¾ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • About 1 cup of total filling (berries, fruit, nuts, etc. – see below for details)

In this batched used blueberries. However my middle man loves when I use mange and my hubby like strawberry. Several times I switch out the juice with a non dairy milk. I have found that vanilla soy-milk, coconut milk and almond milk are excellent substitutions.

These muffins also freeze well. I will bake a few batches just for the freezer for snacks or lunches. When you need a good snack in a pinch and you have this in the freezer…makes life much easier! And you are more likely to avoid the gas station snack stop… been there done that too! 😕 And with school starting back, these are a great lunch addition. (they also make for a great pre and post run snack)

 

Happy Baking!!!
