One thing I love about springtime is when we occasionally drive out of the valley, through the beautiful mountain canyon, to visit my side of the family. We usually go on a Saturday, so brunch is a must, and since we live about an hour away from my folks, I like to bring muffins to share because they are easy to prepare, easy to travel with, and tasty to eat.

When I worked in a bakery, I always had friends ask me about the muffins. “How do you make all of those muffins?” they would ask. Well, believe it or not, at the grocery store bakery I worked at, we used cake mix for the muffins and just mixed in different “add-ins” or flavors. They weren’t the healthiest of muffins.

In my mind, if you’re eating muffins for breakfast, they should be lightly sweet with a fluffy texture, and these muffins are both of those things. The “sweet stuff” I used was C&H® Honey Granules. I wanted a taste of honey without the sticky mess, and since C&H® Honey Granules is a free-flowing mix of pure cane sugar and honey, you can substitute it for some or all of the granulated sugar called for in recipes.

We enjoyed these muffins by slicing them open, spreading some butter inside and sprinkling a little extra C&H® Honey Granules on top with the easy pour canister. Delicious! C&H® Honey Granules go great in tea and oatmeal too.

 

In case you are nervous about converting C&H® Honey Granules in place of honey, the sweetness of C&H® Honey Granules is equal to 1 ½ x that of honey. So 1 ½ tsp of Honey Granules = Sweetness of 1 tsp Honey. If you want to substitute it for fluid honey: 1 cup liquid honey = 1 cup C&H® Honey Granules + ¼ cup additional recipe liquid.

C&H® Honey Granules is sold where I live, but if they don’t sell it in your area, look for Domino® Honey Granules, the sister brand of C&H®.

 

I liked using the C&H® Honey Granules dry, like I would have used sugar for these muffins, and the honey flavor pairs so well with the almond. My kids fought over these muffins, so I am definitely bringing them to Saturday brunch. I’m sure my family will gobble them up just the same.
