Recipe for baked milk in-office allergy challenge

Baked Milk muffins

Ingredients (makes 6 muffins):

Wet ingredients

  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg* or 1 1/2 tsp egg replacer if child is allergic to egg (Note: We use Ener-G brand egg replacer)

Dry ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour (wheat)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder


1. Preheat oven to 350F. Bake muffins only in an oven that is completely preheated to 350F.
2. Line a muffin pan with 6 muffin liners.
3. Stir together the liquid ingredients until well combined: milk, canola oil, vanilla extract, egg or egg replacer (although the egg replacer is a dry ingredient, please add at this step). Set aside.
4. In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt, baking powder).
5. Add liquids ingredients to dry ingredients all at once and gently stir with a wooden spoon (about 15-20 light strokes) until wet and dry ingredients are just combined. Do not overstir. Some small lumps may remain.
6. Divide the batter into the 6 prepared muffin liners. Depending on the size of your muffin tin, you may need to fill the muffin liners all the way to the top.
7. Bake 30-35 min or until golden brown and firm to the touch. A knife or toothpick placed in the center of a muffin must be dry. Cool completely before serving.

Any changes to this recipe must be approved by your doctor or dietitian.

If you make more than 6 muffins, please note how many muffins you made and bring at least 2 muffins with you on the day of the challenge.
