The best 9 grain muffins around, taste exactly like they are from the bakery.
1 3/4 cups of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of 8 or 9 grain cereal
1 1/2 tbsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup of brown sugar
2 1/2 tbsp fine molasses
1/3 cup of applesauce
1 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup of blueberries
Kick the tires and light the fires to 375 degrees.
Sift your dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Whisk together your wet ingredients. You need to make sure you are using fancy molasses for the sweetness it has.
Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix gently until just almost there……little bits of flour are still showing….
then add in the blueberries. I used frozen wild blueberries, which are smaller and don’t sink. Rinse them under cool water to get the juices off and to thaw them. They won’t color your batter this way!
Bake the muffins 15-20 minutes until they are golden brown. The loaves take 20-25 minutes.
