My Loaded Honey/Wheat Muffins

Posted on

I got the idea for these muffins from various other recipes and then made it my own by making/baking them as follows:


2  eggs
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup  oil
1 cup honey (I used honey from Rick’s bees.)
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups whole wheat flour  (I used the flour I ground from our own wheat.)
1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder (I prefer ‘aluminum free’ made by Argo.)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups (about 3 large?) finely grated carrots (I used carrots FRESH from Pam’s garden.)
1 apple— peeled, cored, and chopped
1 cup dried cranberries (because I didn’t have raisins)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup shredded OR flake coconut
2 tablespoons toasted wheat germ
2 tablespoons oat bran (optional)


Preheat panggangan to 360-degrees.  Very lightly spray insides of 18 muffin tins or paper liners with ‘non-stick’. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl (I used my Kitchen-Aid) on medium speed, mix together eggs, applesauce, honey, oil and vanilla.

In separate large bowl, combine wheat flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Stir in the grated carrots, apples and ‘dried fruit’ (cranberries, raisins or whatever you like).  Make sure this mix is mixed well so that the grated carrots and ‘dried fruit’ are well dispersed.  (I used my CLEAN hands to do this.)  Now, add the egg/applesauce/honey/oil/vanilla mixture and stir only until all of the dry ingredients are moistened.

Spoon  batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them about 3/4 full.  (A cookie scoop works great for this!)  If you wish, you could sprinkle a few extra walnuts on top of these before putting them into the oven.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until their top springs back when lightly pressed. (With how my panggangan works, mine took 19 minutes.)

I (we) like how these turned out!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
