Recipe by jennifer in new jersey
These are my 4yr old daughter's favorite muffins that we make. I am posting these for the nutrition info. They are moist and not overly sweet. The recipe is very versatile. For the yogurt, I use this new ogranic yogurt from Wegmans Grocery store which is called "Super yogurt" as it has pro biotics and pre biotics but those nutrition stats wont be listed as this site probably wont recognize a specific name brand's nutritional aspects. I have made this recipe using what is listed below for the flour, flax, wheat germ mixture and I have also been successful using only 1 1/3 c whole wheat flour and 1/2c of the flax meal, wheat germ mixture. We have made them with carob chips once, chocolate chips another time and blueberries and walnuts as well; those are just our additions, but I am sure that anything would go well in these muffins.
- 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1⁄3 cup mixture of ground flax seed meal, and
- wheat germ
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 egg, well beaten
- 3⁄4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
- 2 tablespoons organic skim milk
- 1⁄3 cup honey
- 1⁄4 cup hazelnut oil
- 1⁄4 cup carob chips
- chocolate chips
- coarse sugar, in the raw for sprinkling on top before baking (optional if you need them sweeter)
