We’ve finally used up all of our white sugar, and I’ve vowed to use other more natural sweeteners from now on. So, last week I made my first batch of muffins using only honey as a sweetener. I was SO pleased with how they turned out! And the kids devoured them, which means this is definitely a keeper. I adapted the recipe from one I found in a Better Homes & Gardens cookbook.

whole wheat honey blueberry muffins

Honey Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

  • 1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg; beaten
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. honey
  • 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 c. fresh or frozen blueberries

In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together, forming a well in the center.

In another bowl, combine the wet ingredients (except for the blueberries). Pour this mixture into the dry mixture, and stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).

Fold blueberries into the batter.

Preheat oven to 400*. Pour batter into greased muffin pans, and bake for 18-20 min. or until slightly browned. Makes one dozen.
