Chase away the winter blues with “blue-brrry” mini muffins

Anyone else love to bake on a snow day?  Here is a recent favorite!

Blueberry Spice Mini Muffins


1/4 cup extra light olive oil

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup water

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 1/2 teaspoon

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon each of ground cardamom, ginger and grated orange peel

1/2 cup milk (non-dairy milk works, too)

1/2 cup frozen blueberries

Cinnamon sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 24 mini muffin cups with wrappers. In a large bowl, cream oil and sugar until light and fluffy. Combine vinegar with enough water to equal 1/4 cup, and beat into sugar. Stir in vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, salt and spices. Gradually add dry ingredients to the liquid, alternating with the milk and beating well after each addition. Toss blueberries with the remaining flour, and fold into batter. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake for about 18 minutes, or until a pick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
