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 allrecipes.com.
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:
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!
