Sneaky Honey Wheat Muffins

Still going on the whole food diet.  Sunday is usually my day to make a big breakfast and I was craving muffins.  After a quick internet search I found a Pumpkin Wheat Honey Muffin recipe at

I liked the recipe but made a few modifications.  

I know the kids would have preferred chocolate chips in them.  
They seem to want them in whatever I can put them in.  
Waffles, pancakes, muffins.  
Those little nuggets of chocolate heaven make anything taste better.  

But since we are trying to be good this week, I left them out.  
I also have a boy who doesn't like raisins in stuff, so I left those out too.  
I think they would totally work for these muffins, craisins too.  
Again, this time I left them out.  

The muffins are still good all by themselves and have a powerful ingredient list.  
I hope you like them too.

Sneaky Honey Wheat Muffins

Since I'm feeding 7, I doubled the original recipe.  
I'll give you my version.  
It made 18 regular muffins, and 16 mini muffins.

Soak 3/4 cups pitted dates in water for about 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grind 2 cups white wheat and 1 cup buckwheat

Drain most of the water off the dates and puree with the following:
1/4 cup molasses
1 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 cup applesauce
1 cup honey

In mixing bowl mix:
3 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Mix together then add:
2 eggs
and rest of liquid puree.
Mix until dry ingredients are absorbed

1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup raisins (optional)
1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Prepare muffin tins with paper liners or spray with cooking spray.
Spoon batter into muffin tins filling 2/3 full.

Bake for 18 minutes.

Let cool slightly and enjoy!

Pumpkin, Dates, Applesauce, Whole Grains, and Honey.  
Super yummy. 
Super healthy!

  5. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually
    something that I think I would never understand. It seems
    too complicated and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
