Healthy Blueberry Muffins for ADD

Healthy Blueberry Muffins for ADD
When I was a child, one of the neighborhood moms would make blueberry muffins. They were so delicious! Now, I realize that as tasty as they were, they weren't the healthiest food for kids to eat. That being said, every child deserves a good blueberry muffin!

Power your family's brains with these nutritious muffins. My healthy blueberry muffins are one way that you can give your child with Attention Deficit Disorder, or any child, a blueberry muffin that is a taste sensation and loaded with nutrients. It?s a win-win!

Healthy Blueberry Muffins for ADD

Ingredients:

1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
2 cups sprouted grain whole wheat flour
1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup plain vanilla malted milk powder (optional)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup loosely packed brown sugar or turbinado sugar or stevia, to taste
1/2 cup canola or grapeseed oil
2 eggs
1 cup plain Greek yogurt mixed with 1 cup warm water and stirred until smooth
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/2-1 pint fresh blueberries, washed and rolled in flour until coated. (I used about a quarter cup of flour.)

Method:

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl

Slowly stir water into the yogurt, stirring until it is smooth.

Beat the oil and egg together

Combine the wet and dry ingredients until they are just mixed. Fold the blueberries in gently until combined.

Spray muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon the batter evenly into 24 muffin cups and bake at 350 degrees F. for about 23-25 minutes. The muffins will pull away from the tins. Test with a toothpick or piece of spaghetti. It should come out clean. Makes about 24 muffins.

I've found that there are times when I get distracted and let a box of blueberries settle into the fridge for a bit too long. They aren't bad, but I don't feel good about eating them raw. Nor do I want to throw something so expensive into the trash or out to the squirrels. So, it's blueberry muffin time at our house. The next time you have those blueberries that have to be used right away, try these muffins. They are great nutrition to support good brain functioning that improves the negative symptoms of ADD.
