I made these muffins for breakfast this morning and they were a big hit. Also filling - kids gobbled them up but then could only eat one (they also had egg & smoothie). Delicious!! Usually I try to make a recipe exactly according to directions before rating, but this recipe is very flexible so I wanted to share how adaptable it is. The few ingredient changes I made were accepted cooking substitutions, nothing very unusual. I didn't have wheat germ so I doubled the oat bran. I mixed vinegar with skim milk to make buttermilk substitute. No nuts because I didn't have any. And I added a tsp cinnamon to dry ingredients.
The cooking changes I made were based on previous muffin baking experience. I think the recipe's instructions would be fine, perhaps just not as pretty of a muffin. Specifically, I mixed wet with dry before adding blueberries. Also dredged berries in flour before gently stirring into batter. (This technique keeps the berries from sinking to the bottom of the muffin and from discoloring the batter.). Then I let the batter sit for 8-10 minutes to allow the baking powder to work. (Used the time to clean up the kitchen). All in all, the recipe's ingredient combination and proportions were perfect and definitely a keeper!
