I love Muffins but they are usually pretty sugar laden and have a high fat content. These little beauties however are packed with goodness. Guilt free and from my ‘Saint’ recipes ( I will also post the ‘Sinner’ version, they are chocalicious)

So easy to make, great to get the kids involved.

Ingredients:

40Ml Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – if you haven’t used this before you are in for a treat. It is one of my favourite things to work with

1 tsp vanilla extract

5 tablespoons maple syrup or agave nectar

100g spelt flour

100g Rye flour

4 tablespoons of bran

4 tablespoons of ground almond

4 chopped dates

4 Baby Green Walnuts – If you haven’t used these before then I can highly recommend them. They are soft but still have a great texture. They are also sweet so you don’t need to add refined sugar. I found mine at http://www.veritavita.com

5 tablespoon of mixed nuts and seeds ( I toasted walnuts, pumpkin, sunflower and pine nuts)

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of bicarb

1 teaspoon of baking powder

I avocado mashed

2 tablespoons of water to loosed the mixture

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ( thats how easy it is) and mix together. Do not over mix! 

Spoon into muffin cases and bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. I baked on 160. Depending on the strength of your oven you may need to go higher. However, it is OK to bake them on a lower heat for longer.

 

Enjoy!

 

If you toast the nuts and seed it releases the oils and brings out the flavour
