I had some spelt flour on hand and for some inexplicable reason wanted to make muffins specifically using this flour. I’ve never baked anything with spelt except for some dog treats so I really don’t know why I had the sudden urge to make muffins with this.
I used a banana chocolate chip muffin recipe from Jae Steele’s book Get It Ripe. It’s a great recipe and it’s vegan to boot. No dairy means I can serve these up to my niece who is among the growing population of kidlets that seem to be allergic to something. There’s also no granulated sugar that’s used, just some maple syrup to sweeten the batter up. I used 70% Lindt chocolate chopped up and gave the muffin lovely big chunks of chocolate. If you really want something to stand out, ditch the chocolate chips and chop the chocolate yourself. It’s much much better.
This muffin is definitely a winner and gives me a reason to keep spelt flour in stock.
