I had to have a procedure done a few weeks ago.
After said procedure, I was given a diet to follow for one week by my doctor.
Foods NOT on this diet....
whole grains, fresh fruit, fresh veggies.
Foods ON this diet....
refined white grains, cookies, cakes, muffins, butter, ice cream,
bacon, carbonated beverages, etc.
I kid you not.
So what did I do?
I threw all caution to the wind & had a grand old time!
(Yes, in hindsight, I now see this was not a smart move,
but I'm happy to say I am back on track with my healthy diet.)
I've have always loved to bake & with my new healthier lifestyle
over the past year, I just don't get to bake as much as I would like.
So I remedied that...doctor's orders. :)
Enter this delectable muffin:
I bought a muffin cookbook a decade ago and I have pretty
much been happy with every muffin I've ever made from it.
Here's the recipe:
FOUR CHIP MUFFINS
2 cups all purpose flour
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
½ cup butter, melted
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
½ cup white chocolate chips
½ cup butterscotch chips
½ cup peanut butter chips
½ cup chopped walnuts (I didn't add the walnuts)
Heat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder & salt. In another bowl, blend together milk, butter, eggs & vanilla. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add the milk mixture and stir just to combine. Stir in the chips and nuts (if using). Fill greased muffin tins. Bake 15-20 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Cool.
Makes 1 dozen muffins.
Grab a muffin and a hot cup of tea (or coffee)
have a great day!
