This week I decided to make a batch of blueberry muffin’s. Slowly we are starting to get fresh blueberries in larger containers making it worth while to buy them fresh.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups of whole wheat flour

1/2 cup of spelt light flour

3/4 cup cane sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 cup oil – safflower, coconut – melted

2 large organic eggs

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/4 unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup greek yogurt

2 cups blueberries

1/2 cup chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line and spray 12 cup muffin tray or use silicone liners. In a bowl mix both flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt. In a separate bowl mix together eggs, vanilla, unsweetened almond milk and greek yogurt. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Do not over mix!

Add in the blueberries and then after scooping batter into 6 muffin cups add the chocolate chips for the other half of the muffins.Scoop in the remaining batter into muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes or until firm to the touch. Take out and cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack for another 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!

I must say I really enjoy watching Gordon Ramsay’s cooking show called Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Cooking. It is a completely different side of him from his other cooking show Hell’s Kitchen. He includes his children in the show who are a delight to watch. This muffin recipe was inspired by him. I added spelt flour to the recipe and used milk with lemon juice instead of buttermilk. I also spilt the batter in half and added chocolate chips because not everyone likes blueberry muffins.

INGREDIENTS

2 ripe bananas

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup spelt light flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp sea salt

1/2 cup brown or cane sugar

1 1/4 milk with 1 tbsp lemon juice or buttermilk

1 large organic egg

1/3 cup light olive oil

3/4 cup fresh blueberries or frozen thawed out

DIRECTIONS

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12 cup muffin tray or use the silicone muffin cups. Mash bananas with a fork and set aside. In a bowl mix flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Make a well in the centre and add milk, egg, oil and bananas. Mix until incorporated. Fold in blueberries and scoop into muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden on top. Cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
