Hemp Seed & Berry Muffins
I'm going to apologize in advance for the measurements in this recipe….
Truthfully I am terrible with recipes. I save hundreds of recipes from IG or online that I never make and with my own cooking I rarely follow anything. Including my own recipes haha. They are usually different every single time. Depends on what I have in or how rushed I am or if I'm just curious and want to see how something works in place of something else. Really my blog is to help ME remember but I do also enjoy sharing with all of you too!
I made these amazing muffins tonight literally because I'd already heated up my oven to cook squash for supper and I didn't want to waste all that "heating up." Seriously. I actually do this ALL the time. "My ovens on so I might as well keep going," is what goes through my head until it's 2am and I'm still cooking or baking at which point, "angela you are a crazy person" replaces the former thought. True story.
Anyway. Here is the recipe for these as best I can recall:
3 cups organic flour
1/2 cup cane sugar (see pics)
1/2 cup apple sauce
Tsp baking soda
Tsp baking powder
1 cup hemp seeds (I used cinnamon. If using plain hemp seeds I suggest adding a tbsp of cinnamon to your mix)
3 cups berries (I used a combo of raspberries, blueberries and diced strawberries)
2 flax eggs (ratio: 1 heaping tbsp flaxmeal to 3 tbsp warm water. Mix and let sit for about 10 min or until "gooey" consistency forms)
Drizzle of olive oil (I used Butter from Evoolution)
-Preheat oven to 350F
-Grease or line muffin tin or mini loaf pan
(Please don't use canola oil spray. Its just terrible🙈but that's another post…)
-Make your flax egg and let sit while you gather your other ingredients
-Mix all ingredients together except berries
Your dough will be thick and look like this
-Once your ingredients are thoroughly mixed gently fold in berries just until combined. It's ok if some of them get smashed but ideally you want to keep them as intact as possible.
-Bake for 30min or until golden brown
Let cool and serve ❤️
