White House Honey Oat Muffins

Pin

 

While I was on vacation, I had taken a vow not to cook any new dishes unless and until really necessary. I have so much of drafts to cover and somehow I want to finish them off by this year end, however looking at the way things are, I don’t think I will meet the deadline. At the moment, I am going back to my old posts and seeing which needs updates, but I am taking it slow so that I don’t over do myself. πŸ˜€ But I had to adjust the vow a bit when I saw the mail for this month’s Fantastical Food Fighting challenge!

 

Sarah mentions that since September is the “National Honey Month” in the USA, the theme would be – no prizes for guessing – honey! We had done a honey post for MFBC a few months ago. I love honey as an ingredient and couldn’t wait to do the challenge. I browsed through my drafts but unfortunately, I didn’t have any recipe that used honey extensively. Most of them had just a couple of tablespoons and that wouldn’t qualify as a “honey recipe” as such. It is then I searched through my bookmarked list and found this link that I bookmarked a few years ago.

The name is intriguing, isn’t it? The creator of this recipe, Spike Mendelsohn was “inspired by the new bee hive in the White House” to make these lovely breakfast muffins. Β I was a little doubtful about the quantity of rising agents used in this recipe, but still ahead with it, since I didn’t want to tamper too much with the original recipe. The recipe also has ground coriander added along with the cinnamon, which I avoided, since coriander for me is only for curries and I can’t imagine how it would taste in a muffin. If you are daring, go ahead with adding 1/2 tsp and I guess it should be fine, considering there are many who have tried the recipe.

 

These muffins are on the mildly sweet side. In fact, it was perfect for us. Another thing is to avoid eating them as soon as they are out from the oven – they weren’t really good! In fact, the taste of the soda was prominent. But as it sat through the whole night, it tasted amazing the next day morning, and the day after too. You can prepare these muffins and keep them on room temperature for three days, so it was basically our afternoon tea time snack for three days till it got over. πŸ™‚

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup wholewheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 large eggs

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Keep a 12 muffin pan ready, or like I did, 8 large muffin liners.
  • Whisk all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Whisk together all the wet ingredients till well combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold in totally moist.
  • Divide equally into all the muffin pans, filling it to around 2/3 of the liners. Bake for around 20-30 minutes till done. The big muffins were done in 30 minutes.
  • Take out of the pan and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack.

Notes

The original recipe had 1/2 tsp coriander powder added to the dry ingredients. If you want to add, please go ahead.

    Oooooh! They look lovely! I love using honey in place of sugar in my recipes. To tell you the truth, my kids don’t even notice, plus my pastries taste even sweeter! I’d say I’ll give this a while with some cream cheese on top. πŸ˜‰

      Unfortunately, my elder one always catches the honey and wouldn’t touch it… but since the adults love honey, my bakes get saved… hehe… Thank you so much Raya… πŸ™‚

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Thank you so much Meemfay…

  22. I think I would have left out coriander too – what a weird ingredient to add into a muffin!? Love how tall these muffins look – I typically make my muffins the night before we would eat them, so this sounds like a wonderful recipe to try πŸ™‚

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      That is exactly what I thought too! Thank you so much Sarah… They were tall as they were baked in bigger muffin cups… πŸ™‚

  23. I am just coming across your blog for the first time. It is a pleasure seeing deliciousness scattered around. Lol. This sounds healthy and delicious. I just might try it.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Thank you so much Aisha… hope you keep coming back…

  24. Love the flavor,healthy muffins

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Thanks Suja…

  25. 3 DAYS!!! These tasty amazingly tall muffins stayed in your house for 3 days. I bet these will last for 3 hours in mine:). We can devour it day and night. Love honey in baked goods, it gives this amazing taste and flavor.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Haha… houses are different, yeah Amira! In my house, even a chocolate cake sits for three days… the interest of eating it the first day goes lost as it sits… so I try not to bake often, since I tend to eat up all that I bake… hehe… Thanks a lot dear…

  26. Yummy! I love oat muffins, we make them often. Do you think I could use brown rice flour too? How did you get the long muffin size????

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      I am not sure about the rice flour, maybe you could try, but I am sure the baking time would differ. Those cups that I purchased are big muffins… Thanks a lot Afra…

    Aww what an easy recipe. I don’t really like cooking/baking but my daughter loves to bake and is getting a little bored with the same old cake mix from the shop so this will be perfect for us. I think we will try it with the coriander and see how it tastes. Thank you for the recipe πŸ™‚

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Awww… try different recipe, hopefully you will get to love baking… πŸ™‚ Thank you so much Fateem…
