Oh, beautiful Saturday! The best day of the week! This is the first weekend in months that we don’t have plans……and I LOVE it! We have had a ton of really great, full weekends back to back…but I’m really happy to have a weekend for rest. So far we’ve done a whole lot of bumming around. I might still be in my pajamas.
I can’t have a bummy Saturday morning (or any morning for that matter) without a cup of coffee….and sometimes you just need a little treat to go along with said coffee. So, I whipped up a yummy batch of muffins.
These are super easy to make, and you probably already have all of the ingredients you need.
1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
1/3 c sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
3/4 c milk (I used almond milk)
1/4 c of oil
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Mix all of your ingredients together until the batter is moist. It should appear somewhat lumpy. Next, the add-ins! I chose chopped strawberries and dark chocolate chips, mostly because that it what I had on hand; but you can choose any number of options. You could add blueberries, chopped cranberries, poppy seeds….anything you can think of! You could even add a little lemon zest to the batter to give them a little more flavor. Fold in whatever items you desire into the batter.
These aren’t very sweet, but if you add a couple of tablespoons of sugar if we need to ramp up the sweet factor a bit.
Spoon the batter into your muffin pans, and bake for 18-20 minutes.
Let cool for 5 minutes, and ENJOY!
What are y’all up to this weekend? Relaxing? Working on any projects? Whatever you’re doing, I hope you have a FANTASTIC weekend…and make sure you at least sneak in a few minutes of quiet.
