TGIF! Rise and shine on this sunny day in the Pacific Northwest with these muffins. I talk to Mom on skype these days, because she is now a full fledged techie with a Surface and Iphone and knows how to message the kids on chat, skype, facebook or wherever, and get hold of them irrespective of the location in the world ;). And when she cannot get hold of us, she calls and asks us why we are not picking up the skype call, not responding on Facebook when it says online, and so on.:) We better be ready to receive them calls. Half of our talks I end up talking about the weather. We seattlelites are obsessed with it I say. Often, mom reminds me that it is sunny out in her city every single day! except some days in the Monsoon season. :P. Yes, sure Mom, but I will die in the 48 deg Celcius (118 deg F) Summers there.
It is sunny today (and cold, brr). I am trying to decide between bundling up and sitting out in the sun and listen to something, ARR awesomeness music and arrangement, or think up and whip a few recipes.. hmm touch decision. or write up a post.
Lets get to these muffins. Utterly soft, light, muffiny, and filled with blueberries, all Whole grain (spelt, almond, coconut flours) and awesome for every morning. Add up spices of choice, or lemon zest and make variations.
I used so Delicious dairy free coconut milk yogurt in these muffins and that works beautifully to give them the required texture. These muffins are also My entry for the So Delicious 3 course Recipe contest!
