Yep this has happend…..muffins and granola…. shall I call them grmuffins? or muffola? Haha. As I have mentioned previously I have been bored of breakfast (anyone else get that feeling?). Yes I love porridge and generally some wholemeal cereal with fruit makes me happy (simple things) but you get those times where nothing is appealing. So by the power of bloging I decided I could change this and re-inspire breakfast again!
The simple blueberry…what is not to love? Equally, the simple blueberry muffin, again what is not to love? Love them I may but to make great versions at home, to me, nearly impossible. They always turn out a little wet and slimey and I just put myself off them. Finding a perfect regular muffin recipe is proving hard work and I am yet to find one! Can anyone help me with a fool proof recipe? What is with shop bought muffins?…They are always so satisfying and yummy (especially with a cuppa in bed) and I just can’t seem to pull them off myself. But for now (back on to breakfast granola muffins) I am quite happy with these healthier granola style muffins that uses dried blueberries (which taste amazing as a snack on their own).
This is my blueberry and chocolate granola muffin recipe, inspired by my love of granola and muffins (again, what’s not too love?)! It isn’t your typical fluffy muffin I admit, more coarse, filled with nuts, rye flour, honey, blueberries and chocolate drops. With my muffins being for breakfast I am trying to put in the ‘right’ ingredients that will help set you up for the day. Perfect with that morning coffee…
