Sprouted Spelt Muffins

Plate of lemony blueberry banana muffins

We are 6 weeks into the quarantine of 2020 and Phil and I, like most of the world, are craving more comfort foods!  To loosely quote a line from the movie Julie and Julia, “in a world where nothing makes sense you can take milk, eggs, chocolate and sugar and make a chocolate pie.”  and so, when we have stress we eat…and sometimes cook :0)

We are sick of being fat.  Seriously sick of it.  The “quarantine 15 has got to go!”  But…there is still the ingredients for Lemony, Blueberry, Banana Sprouted Spelt Muffins and so, like an alcoholic who takes one last drink before they quit…I made these amazing Lemony Blueberry Banana Sprouted Spelt Muffins.

And. They. Are. Good.  Lemony Blueberry Banana Spelt Flour Muffins.  I got a “Hankering” to try my hand at a recipe for these after buying one at a high end bakery in town that was well…disappointing.  Stick in your throat dry and the lemon flavor was barely noticeable.  I worked hard at making these moist and flavorful.

We will eat a few, bless our neighbors and remember, when the time is right again, this yummy treat…probably saved for company who are afraid of health foods like celery.

It is a little healthier!

Sprouted Spelt Flour is full of nutrients, and hasn’t been genetically modified.

Kefir is also a nutrient dense fermented milk (think buttermilk).

Organic Cane Sugar…well…it’s better than regular sugar.

But there are Organic Blueberries!  Yes!  and Bananas and they are SUPER lemony.

Enjoy.  And then get back on track.  Be Nourished 4 Life!

Oh, by the way…to assist in removing our quarantine fat we are riding bikes, playing basketball and RUNNING LINES!  Yikes!  and on Monday (yes, Monday)  we will do a 21 day cleanse to break our addictions and begin to nourish ourselves!

Instructions

  • In your stand up mixer or electric mixer beat together mashed bananas, eggs, sugar, melted butter, lemon juice and vanilla until well blended.

  • Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes.
  • Check. If tops are firm, remove from oven and allow to finish in the muffin cups (out of the oven) for another 5 minutes. If tops are soft, leave in oven for another 5 minutes.
  • You can use regular wheat flour or Bob’s Red Mill One to One gluten free baking mix for spelt flour and sprouted spelt flour.

Notes

Frozen blueberries make the best muffins. Toss in flour to help them stick better in the muffins.
You can use a baking tester to check the muffins to see if they are done in the middle.
