Recipe: Honey Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins
These are some of of favourite muffins and we eat quite a few of them. We have slowly been switching to organic foods in our panty so beside the salt and baking powder, the ingredients we use are all organic. The nice thing is that it makes no difference to your baking whatsoever.
This recipe will yield 2 dozen muffins. 12 to eat right away with spoonfuls of jam and 12 to eat for breakfast with your family.
3 cups of flour
1 cup of uncooked oatmeal
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup of sugar
4 teaspoons of double acting baking powder
¾ cup of soft butter
½ cup of honey (coat measuring cup with a drop of oil to help with pouring)
1 ½ cups of milk
2 cups of blue berries. Frozen ones work wonderfully.
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine your dry ingredients.
Mix your wet ingredients.
Add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredient ¼ cup at a time until fully mixed. Honey is pretty magical stuff and it acts as a preservative in baking helping your muffins last longer. We’ve been using local honey from our farmers market, the latest delicious jar from Bees Universe in Innisfil Ontario.
Fold the blue berries in to the mixture by hand. If using frozen, dust them in flour by adding a teaspoon or so to the berries and shaking them up in a Tupperware container. This will prevent you from making blue muffins.
Spoon into well buttered muffin trays and bake for 20-25 minutes.
