great grains muffins

Usually, when I make muffins, I’m trying to sneak a little whole wheat flour into the mix and hoping my husband won’t care.  Well, here’s a muffin that’s supposed to be full of grains…whole wheat, corn and oats.  Good for you stuff, but with a little AP flour so it doesn’t feel like a brick.  I did sneak something else in, though….a tablespoon of ground flaxseed (although wheat germ would be good, too).  For dried fruit, I used blueberries and apricots.  These aren’t big, high-doming muffins, but I’d be happy to wake up to them anytime.  In the book, they’re pictured with a big hunk of cheese, but I think they’re pretty good with a little jam.

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan or read Happy Tummy, as it was Christine’s pick this week.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Your muffins sound really good and healthy too! I like to use a combo of whole wheat flour, wheat bran and rolled oats in my bran muffins.

  2. Your muffin turned out great, and I love the color of that jam!

  3. Apricots and blueberries sound like a luscious combination – and perfect with a slather of jam.

  4. That muffin/jam combo looks amazing! What kind of jam is that? I used blueberries too, but fresh ones, and have been trying not to slather butter on when I eat them.

  5. Yours looks great, mine were rather flat-topped and I thought I did something wrong, so I made them again and they turned out the same way, so I figured it was just me and this recipe. Happy to hear that maybe it wasn’t so much me after all. They were delicious so who cares, right? Big hit around here. Love the sound of your combination of fruit, etc. and that spoonful of extra goodness is making my mouth water!

  6. The jam looks perfect for these—they look delicious!

  7. That smear of jam is definitely inviting and tempting!!

  8. They look wonderful and like they would make for a perfect breakfast.

  9. love your add ins. I made just 10 muffins instead of the dozen to make them a little bigger

  10. Beautiful! Best I’ve seen so far! Blueberries sound awesome, and I totally should have added flax seed! Great idea.

  11. Ooh blueberries sound great. They look delicious!

  12. I had one with jam and it knocked my socks clear off my feet..so good!!:)) Your muffins look so good and Im glad you liked them! I could wake up to a warm muffin and coffee any day of the week!

  13. I wish I would have thought of flaxseed. Great idea!

  14. Great photo – I love the composition. I added chocolate chips to mine and absolutely loved them!

  15. yours look great! moist and yummy. nice job Tia @ Buttercreambarbie

  16. Wheat germ – good idea! I have some in the freezer, but I pretty much just ignore it. 🙂 I’ll start sneaking it into muffins now.

  17. Great idea to sneak in the flax seed! 🙂 Your look delicious!

  18. oh yum–blueberry and apricot sounds amazing!
