AAA Muffins

This is a re-post of an excellent recipe, which I happen to make at least once a month!

Awesome Anytime- Anykind Muffins


One of the blogs that I subscribe to is Life As Mom. She is a mom of many like me and is conscious about what she feeds her family and all that other good stuff that I like, and this is her basic recipe that she suggests and my husband loooooves. So I use it. I change it up every time, whether it’s the “wet” ingredients or the “dry” but they always turn out great.
This recipe makes 2 dozen(!) muffins, or I like to make 24 minis and 12 regular. I freeze half and eat the rest. It would be a good recipe for when company is coming or for giving away.

Here is my version with a bit of adapting:

AAA Muffins


    The "dry":
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • The "wet":
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup milk - or almond milk- or I have used half milk, half juice to complement the flavor
  • 1/2 cup yogurt- or sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • Mix-ins:
  • 1 1/2 cups of any of these in any combination:
  • fruit, cut up or mashed (banana, carrot, cranberries, berries, pineapple...)
  • 1 tsp extract
  • Nuts, chocolate, coconut


Mix the wet into the dry. Add the "mix-ins."

Bake in a 350* oven for 30 minutes for regular sized muffins or less for minis.

I test 20 minutes into baking with a toothpick inserted in the center- if it comes out clean it is done. Perfect every time.

I forgot about this recipe until I had company recently and I got raves. Truly, raves. The first time was banana with granola. This time, cranberry with chocolate and coconut flake. Yum. Half of my kids love chocolate chip muffins and the other half loves blueberry.  As I said, half in the freezer, or sharing, and half for you. Enjoy!

    I love these “do your own thing” kind of recipes. I do it all the time to try and eliminate a lot of added sugar and increase nutrition. These look delish!
