you can take the owl out of Maine, but you can't take Maine out of the owl - here are some muffins made with Maine's state berry!
1 cup milk (I have used almond milk; I currently use oat milk)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg (alternative: one flax egg [1 T flaxmeal (ground flax seeds), 2.5 T water]
2 cups flour (I used an all-purpose gluten flour)
1/3 cup sugar (I used coconut sugar)
3 teaspoons baking powder (alternative for those with corn allergies - 1 teaspoon baking soda, 2 teaspoons cream of tartar)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup blueberries (I used thawed, well drained frozen blueberries. other options include fresh or drained canned blueberries.)
heat oven to 400° F.
grease only the bottoms of 12 medium muffin cups, or line with baking cups.
beat milk, oil, vanilla, and egg.
stir in flour, sugar, baking powder (or alternative), and salt until flour is moistened. (batter will be lumpy.) (I used a hand mixer the first time, but I've used a fork since, because the mixture stuck to the hand mixer's beaters in an annoying manner.)
fold in blueberries. (I found a rubber spatula helpful for this stage.)
