Strawberry walnut crumb wheat muffins.
Does that sound like something you can’t make? If you said yes, I’m gonna suggest that you read this post in its entirety. If you haven’t made muffins before (and want to), check out how we easily we made these awesome muffins from scratch. Like our super simple yema recipe, we’ll be following the K.I.S.S. rule (keep it simple, stupid) for this one.
Because of my inability in the kitchen, I thought making muffins would require me to buy myself a fire extinguisher. Then I found a recipe that seemed simple enough (I’ve already memorized it by heart). Even with my little tweaks (I couldn’t find blueberries), it still turned out pretty well.
Here’s what you’ll need-
|Dry stuff:||Wet stuff:|
|For the crumb:||Flavor/topping:|
Let’s get started, shall we? First, mix all the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Then mix all the wet ingredients in a smaller bowl. Pour the contents of the bowl with the wet ingredients and mix just until the dry stuff has dissolved all of the wet stuff (be sure not to overmix). Fold in the flavor/toppings into the batter and you’re almost done! Easy peasy.
Scoop the batter into your oven safe silicone cups (this batch makes 6 large muffins or 12 medium ones). After this, set your oven to 200°C or 392°F for about 10 minutes to preheat it and then get started on the crumb (the best part!).
With a fork, mash the cubed butter together with the flour and sugar (measurements in the “For the crumb” column) until it forms evenly shaped lumps. Sprinkle it on top of your muffins until the cups are full. Pop it inside your preheated oven, set it for twenty minutes, and start an episode of Spongebob (optional).
As soon as the episode is done (or twenty minutes, whichever comes first), check your muffins. To do that, get a toothpick and stick it in the nearest muffin. If it comes out clean, it’s good to go. If it doesn’t, pop it back in the oven for another 5 minutes and check it until the toothpick comes out clean (repeat until it does).
By this time, your muffins should look as if they were injected with steroids (this one above is a bit flat, i used too little flour the first time). Use a potholder to pull out the pan (do not, and I stress this, do not use a kitchen towel as a substitute. your thumbs will thank me). If everything went well, sit back, relax, and gloat in the fact that you made fabulous muffins from scratch.
Once you get the hang of it, you can use the same base and start experimenting with different flavors. So far, I’ve tried blueberry, apple, banana, carrot, corn, butter, chocolate chip, and almond mocha chocolate chip.

- If I were to pick one thing I miss most about trying to eat low carb, it’s pasta. This is why on really bad days, I gorge on instant noodles. 😨 For shame. Anyway, when I found out about @7grainspantry’s Protein Pasta which are made from two ingredients- edamame and water, I was sold. High on protein and fiber, this is the ultimate carb substitute. #happyhealthyawesome #BTMcooks #BTMrecommends #edamamepasta #proteinpasta - August 25, 2017
- Those tiny grain like things sprinkled on top of this chia pudding is @manitobaharvest’s Hemp Hearts. Rich in two essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6, hemp seeds are really good for health. Kinda reminds me of pine nuts in both taste and texture. #hempseeds #dailychia #chiapudding - August 24, 2017
