No-Added-Sugar-or-Fat Breakfast Muffins
1 cup Kamut flour*
1 cup crushed bran flake cereal
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup dried apple pieces**
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup dried cranberries**
1/4 cup raisins**
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds**
1/4 cup sunflower seeds**
1/4 cup walnut pieces**
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup (or so) real fruit juice (I used half pear juice, half mango-orange juice)
A great breakfast for people on the go!
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease the tin slightly with a vegan oil or margarine.
2. Except for the fruit juice, which should be added last, add all ingredients together. Add enough fruit juice so that the mixture is moist, but not soupy. Spoon the mix into the muffin tin so that each well is almost full.
3. Bake for 25 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out of a muffin clean.
This recipe has no added fat or sugar... so it certainly won't taste as rich and as sweet as most muffins do, but are are essentially common breakfast foods compacted into a teeny-tiny package.
*Note: the flour type may be varied. **Note: all of the seeds, nuts, and dried fruits in this recipe can also be varied.
Source of recipe: I made this one food by combining several foods that I normally consume in the morning.
