Breakin' the Rules Muffin Recipe

Pin It

When I think back, I have been a rebel from a very young age. Maybe always was but only my mom could answer that. I remember questioning all the time my teachers, my babysitters, my parents. I'm not sure where that came from but I have always had a strong urge to question 'why'.


Cinnamon Oatmeal muffins

As in most cases with my projects, I start with a Pinterest or website that inspires me and I adapt it. This muffin recipe is no different. The fact is that when I adapt recipes it is usually to suite what I have on hand. 

This blueberry muffin recipe came from About.com Culinary Arts and I adapted it from there. Adaptations in red.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups blueberries
    • Can substitute chocolate chips, nuts, etc.
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
    • 1 cup flour, 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 
    • I always cut back on the required sugar. In this case I put about a 1/3 cup
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
    • I totally omitted the salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
    • You must substitute liquid for liquid. The first time I used 2% milk; this last time I used fat free Half 'n Half (only because I had some to use up)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
    • I used egg whites (2 eggs, separated equals one whole egg)
  • 4 oz. butter (1/2 stick), melted
    • Always use margarine

The recipe actually calls you to mix the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients separately, then combine. I don't do that, I just throw it all in together and mix.
