These simple sweet honey muffins are sweetened with a little bit of agave (or honey). They are melt-in-your-mouth good!!
Soft and sweet
When looking for a good recipe to share, I look for things like *How yummy does it look *How easy is it to make, and *Does it have the word Grandma in the title? Ok, not that last one, BUT I would bet you money that if it does have the word Grandma in it, its GOOD. And we LOVE to bring you GOOD recipes.
So, when I saw these “Grandmas Honey Muffins” I knew I had to try them! After all, we love muffins! After putting my little spin on it and making sure they were perfection I turned to my tasters. 🙂 Everyone loved these simple and sweet honey muffins!!
They are light and fluffy and, with a little bit of butter, are melt in your mouth good! We decided to try out agave (in place of honey) in this recipe and I’m so glad we did. They were perfectly sweet. We also decided to lower the oven temp to 350, since nothing ever seems to come out good baked at 400 degrees. I hope you decide to try these out, you’ll be happy you did.
Making Sweet Honey Muffins
PREP. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
DRY INGREDIENTS. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
WET INGREDIENTS. In a separate bowl, combine egg, milk, butter and agave. Stir wet ingredients into dry and mix just until moistened.
BAKE + SERVE. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until golden and baked through. Cool 5 minutes then remove to a wire rack. Serve warm.
Tips + Storing Info
I know you are going to absolutely love these muffins! They would taste perfect served warm from the oven with some butter, jam, or even cinnamon butter like the one we use in our Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls recipe.
If you are looking for a good substitute for the milk in this recipe – coconut milk would be a great substitute, but feel free to try almond or soy milk as well.
STORE well covered on the countertop for a few days.
To FREEZE, wait until the muffins are completely cooled and put them into a freezer container or Ziploc freezer bag. When you are ready to eat them they are best thawed at room temperature or popped into the microwave for 20-30 seconds on high heat.
