Cranberry Blueberry Chocolate Muffins

This is a simple recipe for muffins by Shanti Ellis, they would make a great breakfast or dessert or just a great healthy snack

Cranberry, blueberry, chocolate muffins

I’m *not* a baker, but these muffins are very easy to make, and they got rave reviews from the people I shared them with today.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

1 1/2 cup of flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of orange juice
1 egg (or one scoop of vanilla or plain yogurt)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 handful of cranberries (halved)
1 handful of blueberries (whole)
1 small handful of chocolate chips

Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together.  Set aside.

Mix the oil and sugar until smooth, which doesn’t take long since it’s powdered.  (You can use regular granulated sugar, but the mixing takes longer, and I find it affects the texture of the muffin.)

Add one whole egg to the oil and sugar (after washing it off!)  Mix thoroughly.  Then add the orange juice.  Stir into the flour mixture and then add the berries and chocolate.

Fill to about 2/3 each compartment of a muffin pan (make sure to grease it first so they come out without tearing), and then bake them for 20 to 25 minutes (or until they’re lightly golden on top).

Done!  : )
