Mini-Malist Muffins

“Mini-malist muffins” means minimalist miniature muffins. Say that ten times fast.

The base recipe is foolproof and customizable, even if you’ve got a charred thumb (kitchen version of a green thumb.)

Have you ever wanted to eat a whole pan of mini muffins for brekkie? Now you can, and for the same amount of calories and nutrition as a bowl of oatmeal. Skip the cereal and pretend you’re a baker of cute pastries. For the cover photo, I mixed together a tahini maple glaze (Swerve confectioner’s sugar, maple EXTRACT, and tahini.)

Easy Flavor Ideas! Hard Decision!

Blueberry: Generously sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg, then add 3 tablespoons of fresh or frozen blueberries AFTER blending.

Lemon Poppyseed (because I haven’t yet gotten over spring:) Blend in 2 teaspoons of lemon zest. Swirl in 1/2 tablespoon poppy seeds.

Chocolate Chip: Do I need to tell you what to do? *Passive-aggressive smile* Okay, toss in some chocolate chips. On top or on the bottom. Cinnamon makes ’em less stereotypical.

Banana: Replace 1/4 cup water with 1/4 cup mashed banana (that’s half of one whole nanner.) Use cinnamon and walnuts instead of peanuts.

Pumpkin Spice: Replace 1/4 cup water with 1/4 cup pumpkin puree. Dump in pumpkin pie spice, to taste. Use pecans or pepitas instead of peanuts.

“Nutella:” Add 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa and use hazelnuts instead of peanuts.

Butterscotch (my family’s favorite:) Plop in a tablespoon of maca powder. Place a few butterscotch chips into the liners and pour the batter on top.

Tropical: Stir pineapple chunks and coconut extract into the batter, and dust the unbaked muffies with flaked coconut.

Tropicana: Blend in 2 teaspoons of orange zest. Use orange juice instead of water.

Blueberry mini-malist muffins! 3 berries a pop.
