Blueberry Muffins

The beginning of August is blueberry season. One of my favourite feast foods for this time of year is blueberry muffins or bread. I made these this morning with blueberries harvested from my land, and local oil, eggs, maple syrup and milk purchased through our CSA or a local market.

Blueberry Muffins
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp coarse salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk or soymilk
2 eggs
1 cup blueberries

Mix the dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl mix the maple syrup, oil, mil and eggs together. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture. Mix the ingredients in a few swift strokes. Add the blueberries (and more milk if the mixture seems dry.) and mix in a couple of strokes. Spoon the mixture into prepared muffin molds. Bale at 400F for 20 minutes.
