Sprouted Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a standard 12-cup muffin pan; or line the pan with papers, and grease the papers.

  2. Whisk together all of the dry ingredients. Set aside.

  3. In a separate bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the vanilla, vegetable oil, and buttermilk or yogurt.

  4. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring just to combine, then fold in the blueberries.

  5. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them nearly full. A slightly heaped scone and muffin scoop of batter is the right amount.

  6. Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with coarse sparkling sugar or cinnamon sugar, if desired.

  7. Bake the muffins for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle of one of the center muffins comes out clean.

  8. Remove the muffins from the oven, allow them to cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then transfer them to rack to finish cooling.

  9. Serve the muffins warm or at room temperature, and store any fully cooled leftovers, loosely wrapped, at room temperature.

Tips from our Bakers

  • Want to reduce the sugar in these muffins? Use 1/2 cup (3 3/4 ounces, 106g) brown sugar. The muffins will be less tender and less sweet, with a more pronounced wheat flavor.
