Breakfast anyone?

?

I got a pack of frozen blueberries after reading they are just as good for baking as fresh blueberries.? Blueberries are expensive this time of the year but I wanted to start the year right by getting more of the Super Foods in our diet.

Okay, part of the reason I chose frozen over fresh is because?I?m a confirmed tightwad.? Even if fresh blueberries are available at the supermarket, I?m buying them frozen at half the price of the fresh ones just because I? find it ridiculous to spend twivce as much?for something that should have the same nutrients and give me the same results in my cooking.? I found a Bluberry Muffin Recipe online that didn?t use a lot of sugar and came out tasting really good.? Here?s that recipe:

?

1 and 3/4 c. all purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder (2 tsp. if you are over 3,000 ft)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. Olivio margarine
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
3/4 c. non-fat milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. frozen blueberries
Preheat oven to 400F.? In a large bowl, put the frist three ingredients and stir.? In a second bowl, mix the sugar and butter together using your fingers until they are mixed.? Beat in the egg, milk and vanilla until smooth.? Pour into the firts bowl? Stir until just mixed, a little lumpy.? Don?t overmix your batter, your muffins will become heavy.? Fold the blueberries lightly into the batter.
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full.? Bake for 20-25 minutes until just nicely browned.? Makes 16 muffins.

TIP:? Stay away from shortening sprays.?Most of them have chemicals (Propylene glycol)?that can seriously harm you and your family over time.? Use muffin paper liners instead.
