Who here hasn't ever thought, Man, I sure am craving something sweet. If only I could whip up just one muffin.
...or something to that effect? I know I've sometimes wished for just a single, freshly-baked muffin (even though really I could eat a whole pan).
Well, look no further. Before you is a delicious, healthy muffin recipe to fit your needs! Oh except, this recipe is for 2 muffins, because otherwise the man in my house would feel left out and sad. So either halve the recipe, give the 2nd muffin to somebody else, or - my personal favourite - just eat them both.
Now grab that tiny mixing bowl you never get to use, and let's get started!
Lemon Huckleberry Yogurt Muffin(s)
*Inspired by Single Serving Healthier Chocolate Chip Muffin
- 6 TBS Flour
- 3 TBS Oats
- .5 tsp Baking Powder
- Pinch of Salt
- 1.5 TBS Pure Lemon Juice
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 TBS Honey
- 1 TBS Coconut Oil (melted)
- 1 Heaping TBS Honey Greek Yogurt
- Huckleberries, as many or as few as you want (Blueberries will work if you don't have huckleberries in your area)
- (optional) Large sugar crystals to sprinkle on top (we got a blueberry sugar on a trip to the Spice & Tea Exchange in Portland...which I seem to have lost. It'll top my muffins one day, rest assured.)
- Preheat the oven @ 350°.
- In your small mixing bowl, combine the Flour, Oats, Baking Powder, and Salt.
- Now add in all the wet ingredients; Lemon, Vanilla, Honey, Oil, and Yogurt. (I am sorry that nearly everything requires your tablespoon.)
- Lastly, add the Huckle/Blueberries. I popped a few so they could colour the muffins just a little bit,
- Mix everything just until it is all combined. If we're all being honest here, I gave up on the stirring utensil very quickly and just squeezed everything with my fingers. It can all fit in one hand, so why not?
- Now evenly split the batter and place into your muffin pan or liners. (Don't have those? Neither did I the first time. Just mold some plain ol' foil into the basic shape of a muffin and you'll be fine. I did fold mine so it was double-walled for extra strength, but I'm not sure that was even necessary)
- Cook for 24 minutes, or until you can poke it with a toothpick and have it come out clean (or at least come out with only huckleberry blood).
And that was all! You're done! Now enjoy your muffins, and think about what kind you will make next time. I will most definitely be creating many, many other recipes - especially since my favourite season of the year is coming up - and posting them on here. Right now I'm working on Matcha-Lavender, which isn't cooperating just yet. We'll see.
Recipe Note: I have also had success with adding another tbsp of each Oats and Lemon Juice. Makes the muffin a bit denser and tarter, if that's your thing.
