Recipe ReDux: Honey Chai Muffins

I love muffins, but I prefer to make them myself rather than buy them as most manufacturers and restaurants make a cupcake and then call it a muffin. I'm not fooled!

I was at a friends house flipping though a cupcake cookbook (does anyone else love reading cookbooks as much as I do?) when I came across a honey chai cupcake recipe. Voila! I was inspired to remake the recipe into a version I could be proud of.

Chai-Honey Muffins
Makes 10 muffins
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 3 chai tea bags
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line muffin cups with paper liners or spray with non-stick spray. 
  2. Place tea bags in boiling water and let steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags, squeeze excess tea and discard (did you know you can compost tea bags?)
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, mix flour, oats, baking powder and salt. 
  4. Melt butter in a microwave-proof dish. Add eggs, honey, tea and vanilla extract. Whisk until thoroughly combined.
  5. Add liquid ingredients to try and mix until just combined. If you over-mix muffin batter, the muffins become tough. Using a scoop, divine batter evenly in your prepared muffin pans. Bake for 15 minutes or until puffed up and browned. 
  6. Enjoy with a mug of chai tea.

      1. We make muffins at least once a week. And I drink chai weekly - hot or cold! So these are definitely going on our rotation!
