Maple berry muffins

Posted by on Mar 25, 2014 in Snack Bar, Uncategorized | 0 comments

The other day my friend served muffins at a play date and they were so good I asked for the recipe right away.  She wanted them to be more moist so I made a few modifications. The results are so tasty I needed to get the muffins out of sight so they would last for through the week. Bonus, it is maple syrup season and these are a delicious way to incorporate one of Canada’s staples =)

Here is what you need:

  • 2 cups flour (I used 1c white, 1c whole wheat)
  • 1/4 cup  sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder + 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp  salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup  maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt (or a combo)
  • 1/4 cup veg oil
  • 1+ cup fresh berries (I used blackberries cut in half)

Topping:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbs flour
  • 2 tbs slivered almonds
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

To make the topping, combine all ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

For the muffins, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt).

In a separate bowl combine the wet ingredients (egg, maple syrup, yogurt and oil). Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir until just combined (don’t overmix – it will result in a tough muffin). Fold in the berries and spoon into muffin liners (as always, I  use silicon which do Not require greasing, and the muffins pop out in tact EVERY time).
