My life as a woman, wife and mother.

Looking ahead….

on March 22, 2015

Let’s see what happened today…..I walked and read a little this morning and then again a bit after supper, nothing major, I’m around 7200 steps and that’s plenty for a DOR. 😛

I also made jello, made homemade bread, baked delicious blueberry muffins and watched the movie Patch Adams with the kids. I couldn’t believe how much I’d forgotten about that movie, but I knew the kids would like it, especially L, she seemed pretty into it.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins Recipe

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins Recipe

Whole wheat flour gives nutritious flair to these yummy muffins packed with juicy blueberries. Fresh from the oven, they’ll warm you up on cold, winter days. —Sheila Siem, Calumet, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg (I subbed in 1/2 t. cinnamon instead)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. In another bowl, beat the eggs, buttermilk and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
  • 2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
Editor’s Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
