Lunchbox idea #1

Blythe Danners Blueberry MuffinsI was recently asked, via Gina’s Kitchen facebook page to suggest my top 5 lunchbox baked treat ideas. Here is number 1!
The really good thing about this recipe is that there is no egg in it, so it is easy to divide and make fewer muffins – always good as muffins are really best eaten super fresh. Having said that, these ones are chock full of berries so they remain delicious (I was going to say moist, but EVERYONE hates that word!) even days later.

Gwyneth Inspired Blueberry Muffins
Mix together the wet ingredients:

125ml Bran rice oil
125ml soy milk
125ml maple syrup
2tbs agave nectar (or honey or golden syrup or nothing at all, they are fairly sweet anyway)

Mix together dry ingredients
100gr white spelt flour (Why spelt? Well, I suppose it is higher in protein and is supposed to be better for you, but if you don’t have any nor care to hunt it down it will work equally well with regular flour)
125gr wholemeal spelt flour
2tbs baking powder

Combine wet and dry ingredients and add 300gr of blueberries. Usually with muffins they day don’t overmix, but this recipe is really runny and doesn’t seem to mind about being mixed, having said that, don’t really go to town with the mixing!

Spoon into muffin tins lined with paper or silicon moulds and bake for 25min at 190degrees.
