Hearty Whole Grain Muffins
Fantastic muffins! I was looking for a healthy muffin recipe, and happened across this one. I'm glad I did! I made a few changes and modifications though to make it just that much more healthy and to accommodate with what was in my cupboard.
I didn't use any white flour, I use all whole wheat. You can add lecithin and it will be just as soft. I didn't even use that though. I didn't have any wheat bran, so I just doubled the toasted wheat germ. I added 3 heaping tablespoons of rolled oats and about 1 heaping tablespoon of chia seed. I used the whole egg to boost the nutrient and protein content. I substituted 1/2 of the vegetable oil with unsweetened applesauce. I did not sprinkle any sugar on top.
Next time I'd like to add ground flax seed and maybe some walnuts.
I was pretty skeptical of the kiddos enjoying them, but the 3 year old ate at least 3, the 5 year old ate about 4, the teenagers were surprised to actually enjoy them so much, I ate...too many... .
Great recipe! Thanks for sharing!!
