Much Ado About Muffin

Blueberry & Peanut Butter Muffins

Yes, you read that right, Blueberry AND peanut butter in a muffin… I feel like this recipe is going to be a divider between readers but after altering the recipe slightly from one I found on Meg’s blog, I’ve become rather smitten. I don’t know if I’d call them “healthy muffins” but they’re definitely not packed full of nasties and make a great afternoon snack, or work as a sweet addition to a continental breakfast. They’re not too heavy and still taste just as lovely as regular muffins, just without the sugar crash thirty minutes later…



YOU WILL NEED…

1 cup ground almond

1 cup peanut butter

3 eggs, whisked

1/3 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup honey

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup blueberries
A pinch of salt
+ a scattering of dark chocolate chips (or half a cup if you didn’t cover your cereal with half the pack this morning – guilty)




THE HOW:


1. (The boring bit) Pre-heat your oven to 180°c

2. Add all of your dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk your eggs in a separate smaller bowl.

3. Warm up your honey and coconut oil before adding them to the eggs (you can add them in their more solid states but it’s a pain in the derrière to mix and can leave you with an oily mess later on.

4. Mix the honey, coconut oil and peanut butter with your whisked eggs and add the mixture to the dry ingredients.

5. Mix e’rrythang (yes, I just said “e’rrythang”) together and add them to your muffin cases of choice on an oven tin. I suggest a specific muffin tin that will help the cases keep their shape or a more compact, high sided tin that will help keep the shape. The latter is a bit of a gamble but sometimes you just don’t have the perfect tin.

6. Place your muffins on the middle shelf of your oven for 10 minutes before checking on them. If the muffins are golden brown on top and aren’t too squishy, they’re ready (crispy muffins are the best – said no one ever).

7. Once they’re ready, take your muffins out of the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.

8. Keep them in your fridge ready for snaffling on later alongside a cup of tea or some lemonade this weekend. Mmmmmmmm.

9. Snap It! Take a photo and tweet me if you make them (@hello_october_) – I’d make up a hashtag but I’m useless at coming up with fancy names. If you have any suggestions going forward I’d love to hear them!

    This recipe has a great list of ingredients! Most are healthy, so you did a good job! Coconut oil is my favourite ingredient. Loving those muffin wrappers too! 🙂

    You had me at muffin but lost me at peanut butter – I guess I can switch that out if I try these (which I will). Love the wit for the title – bit of eyerolling but lots of quiet laughter. The muffins look amazing though!
