Eats: Dairy-free Oatmeal Jiffy Muffins W/a twist.7:25 PM
I am the queen of multi-tasking! Or at least I am getting better at it. First I mastered the art of reading while utilizing the treadmill at the YMCA today and now here I am blogging while cooking dinner, huzzah!
I don't know a lot of recipes, but I do know how to take basic foods and put my own spin on them. For instance, here we have some Oatmeal Jiffy muffins. I always keep Jiffy mix on hand, both the oatmeal and the corn muffin mix, and they are under a $1 a box at most stores. Here I added some mulberries and brown sugar to make them a little more tasty. What you will need:
-1 box Oatmeal Jiffy mix
- 1 table spoon wheat flax-seed
- 1/3 Coconut milk
-1/2 cup Mulberries
- 2 tsp brown sugar
-6 Cupcake sleeves
-3 table spoons of water
*Makes 6 muffins.
As I mentioned before, I have issues with dairy products so I decided to try out some flax-seed instead of eggs. All you have to do is substitute 1 tablespoon of flax-seed with three tablespoons of water (or any other liquid you are cooking with).
Mix the Jiffy mix, the flax-seed, the water, and the coconut milk all together in a bowl until even. Add the mulberries (I barely had half a cup), and brown sugar. Mix until even and then scoop into baking cups. Bake at 400 for 15minutes or until golden brown.
Why did I use mulberries? Because they grow off the tree in my backyard. I don't think you can buy them in the store so If you do not have a mulberry tree growing near you, I would recommend using blueberries. I have also used almond milk, rice milk and soy milk when making these muffins and any are good.
