“Do you love orange cranberry muffins?
Our 8 year old wanted to try making orange cranberry muffins the other day and I had everything we needed, so we threw together this quick version and they turned out really goooood! All 24 were gone by the next morning. I used my usual method of combining a few different recipes depending on what I had on hand and what I thought would be a good combo of nutrition and deliciousness. Even though this isn’t a recipe using soaked grains (read more about why soaked, sprouted or sourdough grains are better for us here), I did use real food ingredients like these:
- Einkorn flour, one of my favorite alternative grains – we don’t use much conventional wheat these days.
- Organic oranges, since citrus crops are usually heavily sprayed with chemicals.
- Unrefined natural sugar, which is why these muffins are darker in color than the ones you might have had in the past.
- And of course gads of my favorite real foodie ingredient: pastured butter! Why is it my favorite? Well, besides that it makes everything taste better, pastured fats are high in nutrients, AND healthy fats helplower the glycemic index of sugar and grains, which means they help to limit the huge blood sugar spikes that you normally get with those foods. (This is good not just for diabetics, but for all of us to limit weight gain and other nasties, cool, huh?)”
