Brown Sugar and Wheat Muffins

Brown Sugar Muffins

I made these the other night because I wanted something sweet but still healthy. They tasted more like corn bread, or had more of that texture. I loved them and ended up making 2 batches so I could have them for breakfast the next day.


1 Cup wheat flour
1 Cup white flour (I'm sure you could do all wheat)
2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 Salt
Mix in bowl

In another bowl mix
2 eggs 
1/2 cup oil
1/2 Brown sugar
I used old brown sugar and was pretty lumpy and I couldn't mix out all the lumps. It worked great for me. But mix this really well.
Then add 1 Cup milk and stir.

Add the dry ingredients to your wet ingredient and slightly mix. Spray muffin tins and pour into tins.

 Yields 12 muffins bake at 425 for 12-14 minutes.

I have baked for awhile but always with white floor and I would wait till golden brown and take what I was baking out. So baking with wheat is hard for me because I have to wait till it looks almost burnt to me. Be patient let them cook, wait till they almost look burn and they will be perfect.  I hope you like them as much as I did!

Blender Pancakes Whole Wheat, banana and honey

Blender Pancakes

100% Whole Wheat, Banana & Honey

Oh my goodness, these are so yummy!


2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups whole wheat berries
1 ripe banana
2 large eggs
2 Tbsp. honey
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. Salt


I put the milk and wheat berries in the fridge the night before 6-8 hours but if you have a (Bosch blender of a Blendtec I don't think you would need to). The next morning I blended it for 3-4 minutes on high. Add remaining ingredients and blend to combine.

The batter is pretty thin and cooked really fast so be sure to turn down the heat I cook mine at 325 but each griddle is different so be sure to adjust your heat as needed. 

Makes 10-12, 6-8" pancakes. My oldest put peanut butter and maple syrup and like it. I had them with the butter milk syrup I shared the recipe for that with blender waffles post.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Great way to start out your day and even more for your kids.
