Spiced Bran & Blueberry {Muffins}

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your day has been lovely so far! I worked 8-4 today. A man eating at the restaurant and I started up a small conversation & he told me that I had a beautiful accent! I was quite flattered! I am typically more embarrassed of my accent & I rarely get compliments on it. Then he went on to ask me if I was from Ireland! haha. I said no I am from Ontario, I'm an anglophone. He was shocked. haha he thought I was European. I met someone at the mall a few months ago and he asked me if I was German. He said I had a thick German accent when I spoke French. I laughed and said " well that's funny, because I'm English!". I must have a pretty interesting accent!
Here I am posting YET ANOTHER muffin recipe. It had been two weeks since I last made muffins. It felt wrong. I had no after work snack & I felt lost.
So I fixed that and made muffins!
Here is what you need:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup white flour
  • 1 1/2 cups oat bran
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 4 T canola oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground clove
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • one dry pint of fresh blueberries (551 ml)

Step one:
Preheat oven to 400F. Place muffin cups in your muffin pan. Makes 12 muffins.
In a large mixing bowl mix together the flour, w/w flour, oat bran, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, & nutmeg. Make sure it is combined well.

Step two:
In a separate medium sized bowl mix together your wet ingredients. Honey, sugar, egg, apple sauce, oil & milk.

Step three:
Add the dry ingredients to the the wet. Stir until fully combined. Stir in the blueberries.

Step four:
Pour the muffin batter into the muffin cups. Bake for 15 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.


Here are pictures from our weekend!
It took us 2 hours on the bike to get to I'Isle aux Coudres. It's an island on the St Lawrence river. So beautiful!
Me on the ferry to the island.
I got some pretty funny looks from people. I guess I'm pretty intimidating ;)
Finished the day with my pj's on, sitting in front of the fire! Bliss..
