Healthy Double Apple Muffins


While in PA the other weekend I enjoyed a kid free grocery shopping trip to Wegmans, where upon I found this:

sprouted wheat (1 of 1)

I thought this sounded so interesting. I have read a little about sprouted foods and that was my impression – that it was easier to digest. Thought it would be cool to try it out in some recipes and see how it worked.

I used just this for the flour component of these muffins and they were light, springy, moist and just about as perfect as a healthy muffin can get. The double apple refers to both the grated apples and applesauce you put in these little delicious bites.

I would love to write more about these but the children have won today. And it is only 2pm. But when your 4 yr old wakes you at 4:45am, and then subsequently the rest of the house when his request for the iPad is denied, 2pm feels like 10pm.

Double Apple Healthy Muffins
Makes dozen regular muffins, with 10 mini muffins with the leftovers. You could do all mini or more big ones. I find little people eat the mini more willingly and don’t waste as much. If you don’t have sour cream substitute yogurt. Or if you have buttermilk use that in place of the sour cream and milk.
  • 2 cups sprouted whole wheat flour (or spelt flour, whole wheat pastry flour, white whole wheat flour)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds or flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 1/2 cup low fat milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 apples grated on cheese grater
  1. Oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together dry ingredients, flour through chia seeds. Make a well in the middle, add wet ingredients and whisk them together in the middle, then incorporate dry ingredients. I like to use as few bowls as possible.
  3. Into greased muffin pan – bake big ones 25-30 minutes, mini ones 12-15.
