Almond Wheat Germ Muffins

Total Time

There's a couple wheat germ muffins here on 'Zaar, but none quite like this. I love wheat germ! Recipe is from the La Leache League International cookbook "Whole Foods for the Whole Family" and credit goes to Maureen Onstott of Jacksonville, Florida and Shannon Stieglitz of Norcross, Gerogia.

I wanted to try this recipe because it had no sugar or flour in it. This recipe is the most healthiest, easiest and delicious snack/treat I have baked so far! I use coconut oil instead of butter. I may add some dried apricots next time.

So good! I made as written, used a non-fat powdered milk and loved them!! I left out the coconut, but imagine that would have been nice too. At 18 minutes in my oven the edges were really starting to brown, but the texture was perfect for me. I did have a little trouble getting them out of the pan after letting them sit for 10 minutes, so next time I'll most likely use those little muffin cups. Thanks for posting, these are wonderful.

Great breakfast treats with lots of good-for-you ingredients. The batter is very thick and chunky, especially with the addition of coconut. At 20 min, mine were starting to burn so I'd suggest checking at about 15 minutes. Thanks, Roosie, for another healthy treat!
