Biscuit Mix Almond/Blueberry Muffins

Pin It


There is no greater pleasure than to see your children cooking and baking in the kitchen and actually enjoying it.  Well at least to me that is...
My lovely Marina (college bound, so emotional let's not go there), made these beauties the other day.  
She came over and said, "mom, I feel like blueberry muffins, is it okay if I make some"?  So my response to her was, "you are going to make them, or are you asking if I can make them"? (Didi, hoping and praying she said the latter)  She said, "no mom, I want to make them".  YES!!  So off she went!!

She followed my scribbled notes to a tee, and these pictures my friends show her amazing results.  Don't they look awesome?  I am so proud of her!! ♥
The taste?  Out of this world moist and decadent!! You can use whatever fruit you want with these, but truth be told we are very partial to blueberries, well okay and chocolate chips... promise me you will keep that secret!!
Look at how moist they are, they taste even better...


Ready for the recipe?  Here we go;

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 18 minutes
Yield: 12 large muffins

Ingredients:
4 cups biscuit mix
1/2 cup sour cream
2/3 + 1 tbsp granulated sugar
1-1/3 cups milk Almond milk *see notes*
1/2 tsp almond extract 

4 tbsp canola oil
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
1-1/4 cup fresh blueberries
1-1/2 tsp biscuit mix *additional*

*Notes:  If you do not have almond milk on hand, you can certainly use regular milk and add an additional 1 tsp almond extract to the batter. *

Directions:
-Preheat oven to 400F.

-Toss your blueberries with the 1 tsp of the additional biscuit mix.  This ensures that the blueberries will not sink to the bottom. 

-In a medium mixing bowl, add your biscuit mix, your sugar and mix well.

-Make a well in the middle and add your slightly beaten egg, your milk and your sour cream.  Using a whisk, whisk all the ingredients till thoroughly incorporated.  Batter will be slightly lumpy.

-Add your blueberries, after you have sneaked a couple for yourself that is... *what*?  Mix well.

-Scoop out your muffin batter using a 1/3 cup measure plus a little more, (we tend to like bigger muffins) into your muffin tins that you have pre-sprayed with baking spray.  Basically we fill the muffin tins, I know, I know... we like big muffins.  I mean if you're going to have a muffin, then for the "love of Pete, have a muffin"!  That's my philosophy and I'm sticking to it...



-Bake for 15-18 minutes or till nicely golden and a cake tester comes out clean.

-Let cool and enjoy!



Are you heading to your pantry yet for the biscuit mix??

Till next time!!
