Who doesn’t love a fresh blueberry muffin, hot out of the oven and topped with delicious butter?
Your mouth must be watering by now.
We’ve recently played with our favorite blueberry muffin recipe and were able to come up with one that omits all cane sugar and white flour. It also includes a healthy serving of coconut oil from Tropical Traditions, which we all know is delicious.
Naturally Sweet Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup whole milk
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut oil (You can use Tropical Traditions or one listed below)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
In one bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
In a second bowl, combine all the wet ingredients (leave blueberries out).
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine until everything is moist.
Fold in the blueberries.
Fill muffin cups 1/2-3/4 full.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
As simple as that!
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
A handful of fresh blueberries (about 2-3)
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Grease muffin tins.
Combine the baking powder, flour, and sugar in a small bowl.
Add the softened butter to the flour mixture and cut it in with a pastry blender until it resembles a coarse meal (or if you don’t have a pastry blender, use two forks).
Whisk together milk, egg, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl.
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Do not overmix; just stir until moistened.
Gently fold in blueberries.
Scoop the batter out into the muffin tins and bake for it for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving (they will be delicate). Enjoy!
