Tuesdays With Dorie – Great Grains Muffins

by Jessica on February 1, 2011

Great Grains Muffins

After all the Christmas cookies, sugary cakes, brownies and pies that we enjoyed over the holidays, I was super-excited to see these Great Grains Muffins come up in the TWD rotation. I decreased the all-purpose flour a bit/upped the whole wheat, added chopped pecans and a quarter-cup of rye flakes that were leftover from a batch of granola that I made a few weeks ago to end up with some beautiful and yummy muffins. At 7 WW points, they’re a little high, but when paired with a big travel mug of coffee, they make for a very filling & good-for-you breakfast – one that’s perfect to grab on your way out the door when you’re late to work! Not me, of course… I’m just talking in general. 😉

Rye flakes…I’ve never baked with those. They sound interesting. Your muffins look great!

I choose to ignore the WW points – I enjoyed these so much that I am keeping all of mine for me!

I bet they were fabulous with the rye flakes! I loved these too.

The muffins look great in the picture. Good for you for calculating the WW points, too. Just started back last week and I like the new program. Free fruit!! Yahoo! :). Anyway, I just had a nibble of these and they were quite tasty. Keep up the good work!

Beautiful pictures of the muffins! I think these make a great breakfast!

Wow, 7 WW points? That does seem like a lot, especially since I don’t know if 1 would keep me full all morning 🙂 Your muffins look terrific Jessica!

Have a great day.

15 Karen February 2, 2011 at 9:35 pm

You photos are perfect of these muffins. Good to know the points on them. 🙂


16 Leslie February 3, 2011 at 12:52 am

A muffin for breakfast seems like such a splurge, but these are a very rational choice. Yours look delicious (and perfect with coffee!)

I love the craggy topped look to your muffins. Mine didn’t rise much. I totally changed them up though and added banana in place of the butter. They were still good.
