I do not know if I have told y’all this yet, but I am an Earl Grey addict and I do not plan on stopping.
I have this obsession with the black tea, and I do not know when it quite started, but I just know that I need a cup a day, even if the only cup I can get is decaffeinated.
The idea for these delicious Earl Grey Lavender Muffins came from my birthday last year when I attempted a veganized version of earl grey cupcakes. I loved the way those sugary delights tasted, and I wanted to attempt to make a breakfast version for myself.
So, I set out on a mission to try to make a delightful muffin that was full of good-for-you ingredients and, of course, earl grey tea. And I did. This muffin came out so good that all of the rest of them were gone the second day. That is what I call a success!
I started with putting my oats in the food processor and grinding them up to make my own oat flour (I like my a little chunkier than the store-bought processed flour). Then I added all my dry ingredients to a bowl and mixed well. Next, I added all my wet ingredients to another bowl and mixed well. Lastly I added the wet ingredients to the dry and combined.
I lined a muffin pan and poured about 1/4 of a cup of the batter in each one. I ended up making nine muffins.
Then, I baked them for 25 minutes until they passed the toothpick test.
There it is, the perfect earl grey lavender muffins. (This is may favorite brand, Twinnings ) Take this recipe to enjoy with your family as I have with mine.
