Pomegranate White Chocolate Muffins

When I was a kid, I never ate breakfast. Pretty much ever, unless I was famished, and then I would snag a packet of Pop Tarts on the fly and eat them in the car on the way to school. (For anyone wondering: I did really well in school. And never starved to death, obvs.)

In college and after, breakfast was always coffee. When it was purchased from Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks, I often got a pastry to eat alongside– of course.

It wasn’t until recently– until David and I were both working from home– that I started eating savory, egg breakfasts. Filling and healthy, I’ll be honest: I miss my baked good breakfasts and sweet treats in the morning.

So, I pulled up a recipe for a muffin base, and began tinkering, ending up with these delish Pomegranate + White Chocolate muffins!

  • 2 cups AP flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder (I can’t tell you how much I love Clabber Girl!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup veggie oil
  • 6 ounces white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  1. Preheat oven to 400*
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar until well combined.
  3. In a smaller bowl (or, hell, even the measuring cup itself) mix together the milk, oil and egg.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir gently until just combined.
  5. Add the mix ins (coat with a tablespoon of flour if your paranoid about them sinking to the bottom of your batter) and stir the batter once again until well combined. Let sit for a few minutes, to let the baking powder react with the acids in the milk & seeds so your muffins will get nice and puffy.
  6. Scoop into muffin cups and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden on the top. Check with a toothpick to make sure they’re done!
The muffins come out light and fluffy, and absolutely the right amount of sweet. The pomegranate seeds don’t burst when cooking, so you’ll still have little crunchy bits to bite into when eating. SO yummy!
