Here are two of our favorite muffin recipes.
This one is from Laurel's Kitchen, and is really quick and easy. My 3 yr. old loves to help make these.
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup dark molasses (I use mostly molasses, and a little bit of honey, as it makes them just a little sweeter)
1 cup applesauce
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. cinnamon (I use closer to a whole tsp.)
pinch cloves (don't have any, so I substitute a little nutmeg)
1/2 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin. Mix the oil molasses, and applesauce. Mix together the dry ingredients. Combine wet and dry ingredients. Stir in the raisins. Drop into muffin cups and bake 18-20 min. Makes about 12 muffins.
This one is from my mom, so I'm not sure of the cookbook origin.
Banana Bran Muffins
1 cup flour
3 Tblsp. sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup whole bran (as opposed to flakes, I suppose)
1 well-beaten egg
1 cup mashed very ripe banana
1/4 cup milk (I used a rice/soy combination)
2 Tblsp. oil
Preheat oven to 400. Grease muffin tin. Mix wet and dry ingredients separately, then combine. Drop into muffin cups, and bake 20-25 min. Makes 10-12 muffins.
When I made this one, I didn't have any bran, so I used 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup white flour. I had to add more milk to get the right batter consistency, but they turned out really well.
I hope this helps. Muffins are a favorite at our house because they are so easy, and my ds can help mix them and put them in the pan.
