Applesauce Spelt Muffins
I found this recipe in a cook book called ‘Enightened Eating’, Nourishment for Body and Soul by Caroline Marie Dupont. I modified it by reducing the maple syrup a little and by adding the flax. This muffin recipe is low in sugar, high in fibre and tastes great! If you are drawn to this recipe, perhaps you struggle with food intolerances?

- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup applesauce
- 3 tbsp grapeseed oil or coconut oil melted
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
- 2 cups spelt flour
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp lemon or orange zest
- 1 cup raisons
Preheat oven to 375. Line 12 muffin tins or 34 mini muffin tins. Mix wet ingredients, raisons and flax seeds, and set aside. Combine dry ingredients and then add wet ingredients. Fold together. Spoon batter into muffin tins. Bake for 20-25 minutes for large muffins and 12-15 for mini muffins. Let cool before removing from tins. Enjoy!
Spelt flour is a whole grain flour similar to whole wheat flour but it is less refined, higher in protein, lower in calories, easier to digest due to low gluten content but lower in fiber. This flour is not suitable for those with celiac and/or wheat intolerances however it is a great substitute for whole wheat when baking.
