The blueberry muffins were a perfect start to a snowy day like today. I am by no means a baker. I think I made perfect brownies once and that was the end of that. I was never able to recreate the crunch cornered chocolate brownie I made once perfectly, following a recipe ever again ( but I’ll sure keep trying!). However, I made this muffin dozens of times already with great success. My kids, family and friends all love it. The original recipe was adapted from:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon for muffin tops
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup olive oil
1 snack size pack of applesauce
1/2 cup ricemilk
1 1/2 teaspoons bourbon vanilla extract
1.5 cups of fresh blueberries ( I usually put the whole carton because I love extra blueberries popping with the juicy, sweet and tart flavor in every bite)
1- Dump the flour, sugar, baking powder, oil, salt, rice milk, bourbon vanilla extract into a missing bowl and use fork to combine. The muffin batter will be quite thick– it’s supposed to be.
NOte: I did 1/4 granulated sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar because I was out of the granulated sugar.
2- Fold in the blueberries.
3- Scoop into muffin pans (filling it 1/2 to 3/4 of it) and gently sprinkle a little sugar on top of each muffin too. This was as great suggestion from the original recipe. It makes the top crunchy. Not quite a crumble, but such a great touch to make it satisfying (and guilt free)!
I had the girls all helps to line the muffin pan with cupcake liners.
The girls and I filled them up. I am usually guilty of over filling hah!
3- Bake muffins 400F 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out with dry.
Note: Bake 9-11 minutes if making mini muffins.
