Difficulty Level: Easy
Allergens, Other: (Gluten Free if you use 1 to 1 GF Flour)
1 c. all-purpose flour (or 1 to 1 GF Flour (.30)
½ c. Goya Fine Yellow Corn Meal (.30)
1 tbsp. baking powder (.10)
½ c. granulated sugar (.20)
½ tsp. salt (.10)
½ tsp. nutmeg (.10)
½ tsp. ground ginger (.10)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon (.10)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract (.90)
½ tsp. Almond Extract (.10)
4 tablespoons) butter, melted (.60)
1/3 cup peanut oil (or the oil of your choice) (.40)
¾ cups milk (.25)
2 large eggs (.36)
1 cup of evaporated/buttermilk/almond/oatmeal or regular milk ($1.00)
¼ c. dray cranberries, ¼ c. dry tart cherries, ¼ c. pumpkin seeds (Pepitas) ($1.00)
¼ c. of raw honey OPTIONAL, TO DRIZZLE OVER BEFORE SERVING (.40)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a muffin pan and/or use liners, set aside.
In a med-size bowl, mix all the dry ingredients listed above until combined, however, not the cranberries, tart cherries and pumpkin seeds.
In another bowl add all the wet ingredients listed, whisk to combine and then add them to the dry ingredients. Remember to mix only until all is combined. Do not over mix.
Add the cranberries, tart cherries and pumpkin seeds now and fold to combine.
Pour the mix into your selected baking, either the muffin pan or the liners. I always use an ice cream scoop to pour the mix.
Bake for 13 to15 minutes until golden brown, depending on your oven calibration. If you use a black baking pan, check earlier because they tend to cook faster (and burn). They are done when a toothpick stick in the center comes out clean.
Finally, allow the muffins to cool before gently removing them from your baking pan.
OPTIONAL: Honey: Use it to drizzle over the muffins (to-taste.) Yummmm!
