Since I needed to integrate another grain in our diet, I decided to make some some muffins. This helps me out not only in getting a new grain mixed in, but for me muffins are a morning lifesaver! I have about 40 minutes from the time I crawl out of bed to the coffee pot, to the time I put hungry boy on the bus. And these muffins are great to make the night before, heat up and serve with some protein for breakfast. (I’m a meat kinda girl, and really like to have it for breakfast!)
Very Simple Fruit Muffins
1 1/2 cups flour ( I used buckwheat, but any nut flours, coconut flour or amaranth would be equally great! NOTE* Here' is a great equivalent chart for substituting grain for wheat in recipes!
1/2 cup sugar ( I like to mix brown and white equally)
2 teaspoons aluminum free baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk (or a non- dairy like almond, rice (I don’t like to bake with rice), coconut, etc.)
1/4 cup vegetable oil ( I really like to use coconut oil in this!)
1 cup frozen berries (we used raspberries)
Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place baking cups in a muffin pan.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in (nondairy) milk and oil.
3. Fold in berries. Pour into baking cups and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
Makes: about 8 muffins, Preparation time: 5 minutes, Cooking time: 30 minutes
