Wonderfully Fresh and HEALTHY Muffins

Wonderfully Fresh and HEALTHY Muffins

This delicious recipe is from our friend Rachael who is one of the healthiest cooks we know.  We think you will love these easy-to-assemble muffins. In fact after trying this recipe, you may even want to forego the insulin-spiked, white flour muffins stocked in the markets and bakeries, and bake these on a weekly basis. And, they are a great gift to take to your friends and neighbors; they will be so impressed with the extra healthy ingredients.

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 

Mix the DRY ingredients together:

  • 2 cups flour — try using 1 cup whole wheat, ½ cup millet, ½ cup whole oats
  • ¼ cup flax seeds
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼  tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ to ½ tsp cinnamon (or other spice) depending on your taste preferences

 

In a large, bowl, combine WET ingredients:

  • ½ cup Earth Balance vegan butter spread at room temperature
  • ½ cup raw sugar
  • Beat the butter and sugar.
  • Add 1 egg and beat with butter and sugar
  • Then add:
  • ½ cup milk (might want to use Soy Milk)
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups fruit & nuts, or chocolate chips… Can use ripe bananas & walnuts; or apples, shredded carrots, raisins, & walnuts…berries…pumpkin, cranberry, or choc chips & pecans.  (An example of proportions: 1 cup mashed bananas, ½ cup choc chips, and ½ cup of nuts) Be creative!

 

Combine dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Butter a 12-cup muffin pan with Earth Balance vegan butter spread, and cook for 20 minutes.
