Tabitha has been here the past week and is feeling the nausea of morning sickness and the cravings. Last night she so wanted blueberry muffins and no one was willing to make them, although Andy did volunteer to go into town to buy her one. So this morning I made her muffins and she helped out by taking the pictures for me. She was excited about helping me do a blog and took pictures of everything, needless to say I had to eliminate about half her pictures. She did a great job, don't you think?
This recipe calls for 1 1/4 cups of oat bran. But since I don't have any on hand I'm using 1 cup of whole oatmeal (that's the regular, not quick-cook). I add 2 Tablespoons of flax seed to that and grind it up until it looks like a flour.
If you don't have one of these wonderful gadgets, you don't know what you are missing. I use mine evey day for something. I wore the first one out and had to go buy another. They work great for pureeing veggies for baby food. Just ask Chloe!
Tabby had to take a picture of this for all of you. She thinks its funny because I keep all my measuring spoons in a cup. (OK she just told me that the picture is funny because I have paint brushes in it. I tried that thing with painting the cut out cookies and used brushes and this is where they ended up) It's just my thing I guess. I like it cause I never have to dig thru drawers to find my spoons and they're easy to grab. I won't do another survey about where you keep your measuring spoons but try it, you might like it.
If you want, sprinkle a little sugar on top of each muffin. Now bake them at 350 degrees about 30 minutes. I used frozen berries so it took an additional 5 minutes. Shorten the time about 5 minutes if you are making them in the regular muffin tins.
