I’ve discovered the most perfect muffins ever, thanks to GNOWFGLINS! I mentioned last night that I was soaking some whole wheat flour in preparation of baking these bad boys. This morning, while munching on the first half of breakfast (a bowl of Ezekiel raisin cereal), I baked up these muffins. I could not wait until they cooled – they smelled so good!
They tasted as good as they smelled! (You can see one muffin missing in the photo above…. it’s in my tummy!) The perfect muffin. Whole wheat goodness, soaked for optimal mineral and nutrient absorption, and ridiculously tasty – the perfect combination of sugar and spice (and everything nice).
You can find the recipe here: GNOWFGLINS Basic Soaked Muffins
I used the spices suggested by Wardeh in the recipe (cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg) and added raisins. I soaked whole wheat flour with organic raw apple cider vinegar overnight (about 12 hours). The only modification I made to the recipe was to use half of the recommended amount of coconut oil (as I’m watching my calories!). I think next time I will cut back a little on the sugar – these muffins are definitely sweet! Still, I’m going to call these the perfect muffins, because my goodness, they’re good!
I’ll be freezing half of the batch in ziplock bags, as it’ll take me a while to get through 12 muffins.
