Basic Whole Wheat Muffins

Heather Perkins

You can add anything to these muffins, my friend will add craisins, cheese, or anything to make them unique. If you want to add cheese, mix everything together, then add 1 cup grated cheese after recipe is mixed.

1 1/3 cup flour: Wheat or white flour works (I use wheat)
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder

2 eggs beaten
3 tbsp melted butter
3/4 cup milk

Mix flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, margarine and milk.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Stir until dampened. Mix as little as possible....Batter will be lumpy. Fill the muffin tin 2/3 full.

Bake at 400 degree 15-17 minutes.

This recipe also works well to use the mini muffin tins, I usually cook the muffins about 10 minutes when I do this and they are more bite sized and yummy.

Weight Watchers Points, 2 pts. a muffin. 1 point using the mini tins.
