After many attempts to get this just right, this is what transpired. I ran a B&B called Bumbleberry Inn and made these muffins every morning to my guests' delight.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a muffin tin.

  • Mix milk and lemon juice in a bowl. Let stand until soured, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine flour, whole wheat flour, oats, flax, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.

  • Beat soured milk, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a smaller bowl. Mix into flour mixture until batter is just moistened. Fold in berries. Spoon batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes, before transferring to a cooling rack.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute vinegar for the lemon juice if preferred.

Top each muffin with a berry before baking, if desired.

2.9.19 Used white whole wheat flour skim milk and a combination of blueberries and strawberries for the fruit. I was a bit concerned that the muffins would be done ar the 325ºF temp. I typically bake muffins at 350ºF however these baked up perfectly at 25 minutes. Many muffin recipes can be decadently sweet and that s one thing that I liked about this recipe. You get just enough natural sweetness from the fruit the oatmeal gave the muffin a bit of a bite but they still were plenty moist and tender. I think what I m trying to say is that I felt like I was eating a tasty but healthy muffin this morning! Nice breakfast muffin sherry and my husband enjoyed them as much as I did. Read More
