I’m always on the lookout for good muffins. Instead of trying to find a good recipe, I figured I should try to make one of my own. I scoured the internet, and all my cookbooks to try to devise a simple, basic muffin recipe. I think this one is it.
I imagine you could add many other ingredients, but this time I just added bananas (and one blueberry on the top of each muffin, just for kicks).
Here’s the recipe:
- 1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour (it’s the only flour I use, ever)
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbs melted butter
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 mashed bananas
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Prepare your mini muffin pan. I like to grease mine with coconut oil, and I like to be generous about it.
Mix dry ingredients together. Beat eggs, and add melted butter, milk, and bananas. Combine the dry and the wet ingredients and lightly mix using a wooden spoon. Only stir for about 10 seconds. It should be really lumpy and not pourable. This will make for the best muffins.
Spoon into pan, filling nearly to the top. This is when I added my blueberries. I just let Alma drop one berry onto each muffin, and lightly poke it in.
Bake for about 12 minutes, or until starting to turn golden brown on top.
These are great! We ate them right up. In fact, I left of them on the counter, and after Alma’s nap, I kept finding her with a muffin in each hand. Definitely toddler approved.
