Un-nutty Apple-Blueberry Muffins
I thought of making sweet apple pancakes last night. I felt like I was sapped of all my energy after hours of cleaning my computer station (yes, cleaning is such a long and tedious process for me) so I need some sugar to fuel up my tired body he he he. But I saw a bag of frozen blueberries in the fridge so I opted to make muffins instead and just add apple into the mix. I remember seeing a picture on a food site of nutty apple blueberry muffin-lots of blueberries and little pieces of apple with walnut topping. I don’t even need a recipe for this after making so many blueberry muffins in the past. Basically, it is preparing the dry and wet ingredients separately then mixing them together, fold in berries and top with crumbs or nuts. But nobody’s perfect in this world! I forgot my nut topping and I don’t know what happened because when I tasted one- I knew I won’t get the fuel I need from the muffins because it tasted like it was devoid of sugar. Thank God for whoever thought of glaze so I was able to salvage the muffins by drizzling them generously with glaze. They’re un-nutty, but just perfect for my need. Here’s how to make them
