Blackberry Muffins with Oatmeal Crumb Topping

Some of my very favorite muffins are these Strawberry Muffins with Oatmeal Crumb Topping. Seriously the best strawberry muffins on the freakin’ planet. So since it’s the height of the blackberry season, I decided to fiddle with it and use blackberries instead. Good job me. It did not disappoint. Since I’m going to freeze both strawberries and blackberries, I’m going to have a heck of a time choosing which one of these recipes to bake all year because these were just as good! Decisions, decisions.

blackberries

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1 1/4 cup blackberries, chopped
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

crumb topping recipe

Crumb Topping

1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 tablespoons butter, cut into bits
1 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Blackberry Muffins with Oatmeal Crumb Topping

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 F. Line muffin tins with baking cups or grease tins with cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Add oil, egg, and milk and stir until there are no lumps. Fold in blackberries and set aside.

In a separate bowl mix together the ingredients for the crumb topping with your fingers {or a fork if you don’t like to touch your food} until nice and crumbly.

If you have major OCD like me, use a 3 tablespoon cookie scoop to fill your muffin tins. But if you’re like the normals of the world, just fill the tins 2/3rds of the way full and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.

Bake for 20 minutes or until they are lightly browned.

Cool slightly and serve warm.

This recipe makes approx. 12 muffins, and these freeze exceptionally well!

I’ve changed my shopping habits a bit this week. With all of the end of the year/graduation activities around here, our eating schedules have been totally off.

Food Waste – How Much Food Does the Average Family Throw Away in One Year?

  • Like on Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Print Friendly and PDF
  • Pin It

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own. The food in this story was donated. For more information, see my disclosure policy.

food waste in America #SaveitsundayI recently teamed up with Glad Food Protection to take the #SAVEITSUNDAY pledge to not only help eliminate food waste in my own kitchen, but to show you some cool and creative ways you can reduce food waste in yours.

What is the #SAVEITSUNDAY pledge?

Well basically, it’s about loving food more and wasting it less, one day at a time.

When I started this challenge and partnered with Glad, I really thought I understood how much people {myself included} were wasting. I didn’t. I had never quite grasped what it really looked like. Until now.

grocery shopping tripAmerican families waste about 25% of the food and beverages they buy annually. That’s a fact. The estimated cost of food and beverages thrown out by the average American family each year is around $1,500. Sadly, that’s a fact too. FIFTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS. That means people are throwing away and wasting more food than I’ve spent in an entire year to feed my family. Blows. My. Mind.

It’s easy to turn the other cheek and ignore the problem until it’s staring you in the face. Until you see what $1,500 in food waste looks like. Until one thousand five hundred dollars’ worth of food is sitting in your kitchen. It’s overwhelming really. And it’s a wake-up call I hope echos to each of you.

When I ventured out with Glad’s education grant for $1,500 to see exactly what this amount of money in food waste looks like, I wanted to make sure I covered all my bases. I know we all shop differently. We all frequent different stores and have different eating habits and spend our food budgets differently. So I shopped at 10 different stores, spending $150 at each on a variety of food products.

Grocery Outlet Shopping TripGrocery Outlet - I was able to get the biggest bang for my buck here. I had to pick through a lot of scratch and dent items and ignore expiration dates a few times, but I was able to get a solid variety of items.

winco shopping tripWinco - Winco continues to be my favorite non-couponing store to shop at. Huge selection. Great stock. Excellent prices. I bought a few higher ticket items here including bulk sugar, salmon and a few hams.

walmart shopping tripWalmart Super Center - I’m not typically a Walmart shopper, but I knew, because they are the nation’s #1 retailer, I had to put them on my list. Lucy the Puggle Dog couldn’t have cared less about what I bought there, with the exception of that pineapple.  Pretty sure she thought I bought it for her.

pike place market shopping tripPike Place Market – The most expensive trip, but one of my favorites. All of the products I purchased were local. I knew where every item was grown, processed, packaged, etc. Everything was organic and non-GMO {well, except maybe those cookies and the pasta sauce}.

vitacost shopping tripAmazon Grocery – A random assortment from Amazon. A little of this and a little of that. Shopped in my pj’s so it was my favorite buying experience, as always.

vitacost shopping tripVitacost - Vistacost.com is a great site for getting specialty and organic products shipped right to your door. Shipping is always free if you spend more than $49, so that didn’t cut into my $150, and there were some great sales on some great products.

costco shopping tripCostco -  I had a plan going into Costco so I wouldn’t blow the entire $150 after getting distracted by all the awesomeness in the store. I stayed focused and, as a total bonus, had a full lunch consisting of a bunch of random samples. Score!

Filbert Acres Puyallup WashingtonFilbert Acres in Puyallup, Washington- Filbert Acres grows according to organic standards & specializes in quality pork, vegetables, strawberries, cut flowers & pumpkins. I just hit them up for meat, but they have an awesome CSA shares program that features the best, freshly harvested produce. I even got to hang with the farmer/owner too!

filbert acres heritage porkHeritage Pork- This is all the meat I snagged from Filbert acres. I’d say that’s a great haul of quality meat for $150!

trader Joe's Shopping TripTrader Joe’s - I just love Trader Joe’s. It’s healthy organic foods at Winco prices. Sweet!

whole foods shopping tripWhole Foods - I was a little worried I’d only be able to walk away with an item or two from Whole Paycheck, ahem, Whole Foods. But I was able to make my $150 spread a little further than expected. Plus, I know the quality of the products purchased here is excellent.

#SaveitSunday Food WasteAnd there you have it. Grand total of $1,500 in food. That’s what it looks like. Now that might not look like the type of foods you waste, but I guarantee you’ve chucked something pictured in that image above. The magnitude of that food waste was shocking. That’s the average amount of food you, me and our fellow Americans waste every year. It’s appalling.

Once I began to grasp what $1,500 worth of food waste actually looked like, I began to get angry; at myself for not being more diligent and at our country in general for not caring more. I began to realize that, if we would just take a few extra minutes a day, or just be a bit more mindful, almost every last bit of that food could be saved. Simple things like properly protecting your fresh foods the day you buy them with food protection products like GladWare and ClingWrap, which have minimal costs, can help you save in more ways than one.

food wasteCan you image what it would look like if even a portion of the readers on this site decided to really make an effort to reduce or eliminate food waste?  I know so many people who are struggling just to put a meal on the table and so many more who don’t even think twice about tossing unwanted, and perfectly usable food just to create space in the fridge. What if we found a balance there? What if the ones with excess or even simply enough made a few small changes, and suddenly, there was plenty to go around?

It’s not that far fetched of an idea. And it can start with you. {FYI - The food in this story was donated.} :)

family renewal shelter tacoma

By saving and preserving that $1,500 in potential food waste through proper food storage protection and mindful eating habits, we could instead bless charities like the Family Renewal Shelter {shown above with their therapy dogs} and Local Food Banks. Bins upon bins, representing annual food waste, instead driven to be donated to those truly in need.

I’m up for the #SAVEITSUNDAY challenge. Will you join me?

Happy monday everyone, how was your weekend? On saturday The Girl, Lucy the puggle dog and I took a 4 mile walk around the harbor. We stopped by the post office to mail a letter on our walk and ended up walking around town with a mystery package someone had mailed us. Ha! Lucy came home and crashed on the couch {Yay!} so it was a good trip. :)

The weather has been a little wonky lately, raining one minute and clear skies the next, so my garden chores have been a little random lately.

Hope all is good in your neck of the woods, have a great day.

Have you ever noticed that if you buy an expensive toy for your dog that they’ll destroy it in a day or two, but if you get a free one from a garage sale or some other random place, not only does it last forever, but it becomes their favorite toy?

How does that happen anyway?

Lucy has been playing non stop with her little freebie monkey for over a month now. Sure his ears and tail have been nibbled off, but Lucy plays with him non stop.

Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Store and Cafe

Bobs Red Mill Whole Grain Store and Cafe

This past weekend The Girl and I decided to take a quick road trip to Portland, Oregon. One of the places we decided stop in and check out along the way was Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Store.  The store features pretty much EVERY Bob’s Red Mill product–even the hard to find ones.  It doesn’t hurt that you can smell freshly baked goodness throughout the entire store either. ;)

Bobs Red Mill Whole Grain Store and Cafe

You can also take a tour of the manufacturing facility and check out the whole stone grinding process.

Their claim to fame is that they still use traditional quartz millstones to grind their grains at cooler temperatures.  It is supposed to protect the nutritional value of the grains.  They are also leaders in the gluten free game.  They dedicate separate packaging and equipment just to ensure that their products are safe.

bobs red mill picture

Bob’s Red Mill got its start in the mid 60′s when Bob Moore, the founder, read a book about stone-grinding techniques.  He originally started out in California, but when he and his wife decided to retire to Oregon and he stumbled upon a mill for sale and Bob’s Red Mill as we know it was born.  He’s been totally committed to preserving that idea of providing healthy trust-worthy products and doing the right thing by people.

Bobs Red Mill Whole Grain Store and Cafe

In fact, on his 81st birthday, instead of retiring and selling the company, he announced that he was leaving the company to his employees.  He split the shares and now they all have an invested interest in the company.  Pretty cool, if you ask me.

Bobs Red Mill Whole Grain Store and Cafe

We stopped off at the cafe {because let’s face it, it’s the right thing to do} and the food was great. So if you are ever in the area {it’s only about 10 minutes from Portland}, you should totally stop in.
