Sweet Muffins


My grandmother used to bake these. The ingredients are really simple, but the flavor is great. Not too sweet – a perfect morning muffin or mid afternoon snack. I added some frozen berries and cherries to them (defrosted in a pan with a bit of agave).


Sweet Muffins


1 tbs ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water (let sit for a couple of minutes to thicken)

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup canola oil

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease bottom of 12 muffin cups.

Sift together flour and baking soda in seperate bowl.

Mix together flax mixture, milk, oil and vanilla extract. Beat together with sifted flour, baking soda, sugar and salt. Batter will be a bit lumpy.


Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full. If adding berries use a bit less batter in each tin – add a tbs of berry mixture and top off each with remaining batter.


Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden. Let muffins sit in tin until slightly cooled.
