Muffins!

The best thing about making muffins is that they’re easy to make. And just as easy to make up a recipe for. The basic idea you want to work with is a 2:1 ratio of dry to wet ingredients. Aside from that, there’s plenty of room to play.

Today’s muffins shall be named Oatmeal Fruit Muffins, as they were inspired by my want to bake with the yummy dried fruit I bought at Trader Joe’s.

Preheat the over to 350ºF.

In a bowl, mix 4 cups of oat flour*, with 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp salt, and a pinch of cinnamon. I also added 2-3 tbsp of flax seeds, plus another about 2 tbsp of ground flax seed.

Add a cup of dried blueberries, and another cup of orange flavoured cranberries. Mix into the flour mixture. (This will “dredge” the berries, so that they won’t clump together once the liquids are added to the batter.)

Make a well in the middle of your flour and fruit mixture. Beat an egg in a small bowl then pour it into the well. (I crack it directly into the well then mix it there.) Then add a cup of milk and 1 tbsp honey to the well. Mix the liquids into the flour. Don’t over mix!

Scoop the batter into a slightly greased muffin tin. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Enjoy!

*Oat flour is easy to make, if you don’t want to buy it. Simply put oat flakes/rolled oats in a blender, and whirl it up until it’s finely ground. I like baking with oat flour as it keeps the baked goods moist.
