People always say how they dread Mondays & I used to say the same thing. This doesn't apply to everyone because many of us do not work M-F, 9-5 jobs any longer (or ever). Today is Thank God It's Monday Day. So in honour of this day here is why I appreciate, if not love (I know it's hard) Mondays.

The obvious restart. Especially when the previous week went horribly wrong. Or you just didn't hit the goals that you wish you did. Monday is also a chance to learn from went wrong & try to make the new week better.

Whether that is snapping at a co-worker last week and on Monday having more patience. Or having your work week scheduled on a Sunday. This may include filling out your planner, meal prepping and having your clothes pressed & ready to go for the week.

Do you love or hate Monday's? If you love them, I'd love to hear why? If you hate them, what do you find so terrible about them?

Healthier Blueberry Muffins

Prep Time: 7 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

6 standard size muffins

Healthier Blueberry Muffins

Ingredients

  • 1-1.5 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup milk at room temperature, or substitute soy, nut or coconut milk
  • 1 egg at room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp melted butter or melted coconut oil or vegan substitute
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Prepare your muffin tin, if needed. Non-stick is easier.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F/190°C.
  3. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl & set aside.
  4. Lightly beat the milk and egg.
  5. Add it with the remainder of the ingredients, minus the blueberries.
  6. Mix or beat lightly just until the dry & wet ingredients are blended.
  7. Fold in blueberries. You can leave a few to place on top of the batter.
  8. Evenly divide the batter. Place the extra blueberries on top.
  9. Bake for about 15-17 minutes. Your oven times and temperatures may vary. Check doneness after 12-ish minutes.
  10. Let sit in baking pan for 4-ish minutes. Turn out & cool on wire rack.
  11. Serve at room temperature or warm.

Notes

These blueberry muffins freeze very well. Wrap securely and freeze for up to 3 months. You can defrost on the counter. Heat in the oven to warm, wrapped in foil. Or microwave for 15-20 seconds to warm.

You can use lime or orange zest for a different flavour or if that is all that you have on hand.

I like to keep orange and lemon zest, wrapped well, in the freezer so I have it ready to go at all times. It keeps well for about six months. Or dry the zest, storing in an airtight container. Rehydrate with a little water before adding to the recipe.
