Add to Me Muffin Mix


This is just a basic muffin recipe. You can add anything you like to make these your own special muffins. Try fresh or frozen berries (try raspberry and white choc chip for a decadent treat), choc chips, nuts or even finely chopped vegetables for delicious savoury morsels. All muffins will be mixed together the same way, just add your additions once the batter is completely mixed. Use a wooden spoon and only mix until the ingredients are just combined and moistened, don't over beat. Bake as directed in this recipe.

Ingredients:
2 cups SR flour*
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
2 egg whites
1 cup skim milk

Method:
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius. Place the flour and sugar in a large mixing bowl.  In a separate bowl blend the oil, egg whites and milk with a balloon whisk until blended completely together. Pour into the dry mixture. Mix with that wooden spoon until everything is just moistened. Add any berries, nuts, choc chips etc now, just barely mixing through the batter. Prepare a muffin tin with a non stick cooking spray OR place a muffin paper in each cup. Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full of batter. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a couple of muffins comes out clean.

* You can use half white, half wholemeal SR flour if you wish to.

These muffins are the best morning tea snack and they really keep the after school hungries at bay until dinner time too. You can make them low fat by substituting unsweetened applesauce (homemade or canned) for the oil, just use the same quantity. You won't notice any difference in texture, flavour or moistness I promise.
