TWD: Great Grains Muffins


By the time you read this, I'll be back in Singapore to celebrate Chinese New Year with my family! Just before I left for my trip, I baked 1/4 batch of these Great grains muffins. I do not have cornmeal on hand but I decided not to buy a pack just for this recipe, as I know that it will probably never see the light of the day again after being used once. So I substituted the amount called for with wheat flour. Dried cranberries and walnuts were added to the muffins too.

This yummy muffin recipe is chosen by Christine of Happy Tummy for TWD this week. If you want to give the recipe a try, hop over to her blog!

Happy CNY! These would make a great snack on the trip, and I think they were very flexible--I changed the proportions of the grains a bit too.
