If you have eggnog on hand (especially if you made this Homemade Eggnog Recipe), you’ll find that these muffins can be thrown together very quickly. They taste just like Christmas if you ask me!
Quick Eggnog Muffins
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour (I use freshly ground hard white wheat)
3/4 cup sucanat
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup eggnog
2 teaspoons rum extract (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Stir together flour, sucanat, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Add melted butter, eggs, eggnog, and extracts. Stir until well combined. Scoop batter into 16 paper lined muffin cups. Bake in a 400° for 15-22 minutes or until muffins are golden brown.
Makes approximately 16 muffins.
The rum extract in this recipe is optional, but it sure does add some great flavor! These are a perfect addition to your Christmas brunch. And did I mention they are easy to make? :)
