Raspberry Spelt Muffins

posted by Estelle February 14, 2012 4 Comments

I wanted to make some muffins for my girls for valentines day morning, so I grabbed some frozen raspberries and these muffins were born!

Raspberry Spelt Muffins

2 tbsp Chia seeds
6 tbsp water
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp maplle syrup

2 cups spelt flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup frozen raspberries

Pre-heat oven to 350ºF
Put the chia seeds and the water in a bowl to sit for a few minutes, it will form a gel. The chia seeds and the water act as a binding agent just as eggs do so you can use this when you want to substitute eggs in a recipe. 1 tbsp Chia seeds + 3 tbsp water = 1 egg.

In another bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

Now add coconut oil (I melted mine first), applesauce, maple syrup and vanilla to chia seed mixture, mix well.
Add wet ingredients to dry and mix just until moist, be sure not to over mix. Fold in quinoa and raspberries. The batter will be quite thick and sticky. Pour in muffin tins and bake for 30 mins.

Grease a large cookie sheet.
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl then cut in the butter until it is crumbly
Mash the bananas with the milk, vanilla and honey
