My favorite kind of recipes are those that are flexible. Recipes that, on any given day, I can make work with what I might have in my pantry. These muffins are just that kind of recipe.
The basic ingredients are the same…flour, baking soda, baking powder, applesauce. What you choose to add in from there is completely up to you. It can be fresh blueberries, walnuts, a dash of cinnamon. Maybe some chocolate chips or dried fruit?
Even your pickiest eater will have a combination that they will love. And you know what? They are perfect for adding them in one of your MOMables lunches.
The flour in this recipe is whole wheat pastry flour. It’s different than whole wheat flour in that it comes from a softer wheat, giving pastries a delicate texture instead of the usual dense baked goods whole wheat flour often yields. If you don’t have whole wheat pastry flour it can be substituted with all-purpose flour.
Another thing I love about this recipe? It’s simplicity. You don’t need any fancy gadgets, mixers or food processors. A bowl and a wooden spoon will do the job.
