blueberry muffins!

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I make breakfast for my husband and I pretty much everyday, with maybe one or two “cereal days” a month. Something about the routine helps me wake up – some people take a nice long shower, some people go for a run, I cook breakfast and clean the kitchen – to each their own, right? Over the last few days, I have been feeling extra tired. I am assuming it has something to do with my pregnancy because nothing has changed in my day to day that would account for my sleepy/laziness. These last few days, I don’t want to make a big breakfast – hell – my husband has been lucky to get a boiled egg and berries and to be honest, it’s making me feel down! I love waking my man up with a nice, hearty, delicious meal. I was home the other night and got to thinking, “what if I made breakfast now, while I’m feeling alert?” and then BOOM! LIGHTBULB! I grabbed some blueberries from the fridge and whipped us up a small batch of blueberry muffins. The next day, that boiled egg didn’t seem so boring paired with a delicious muffin! Problem solved – at least for a few days!! This recipe will make you 8 muffins.

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar, plus 1 tbs for muffin tops
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen OK, just don’t thaw first if frozen)

Preheat oven to 400. Line a muffin tray with papers. (This recipe only makes 8 muffins, so only line 8 cups).

Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a mixing bowl – mix together using a whisk or fork to make sure all ingredients are combined. In a separate bowl, combine, vegetable oil, egg, milk and vanilla – whisk together. Pour your wet ingredients into dry and mix with a fork until just combined. The batter should still look chunky. Add blueberries and gently combine. DO NOT OVER MIX.

Spoon mixture into muffin tin. Bake 15-20 mins until tops are golden brown.

ENJOY!
