This recipe is a wonderful treat perfect for a high-carb day. Delicious, healthy, and totally adaptable to your tastes!
I love to share recipes, but there are some important tips I want to share when reading and testing out a recipe for yourself. INGREDIENTS MATTER! Even the healthiest of recipes can be left open to unhealthy and even toxic interpretations when it comes to ingredients listed.
Some of the ingredients are listed as you should look for them in the store however, there are some ingredients that take more consideration. Take a moment to read through the ingredient list and see my notes below. This will give you some insight so that you can execute recipes cleanly and healthfully.
2 C Einkorn All-Purpose Flour
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
½ Tsp Sea Salt
2 Eggs (Vital Farms Organic, Pastured)
½ C Organic Raw Cane Sugar
¼ C Organic Maple Syrup
1/8 Tsp Organic Pure Stevia Powder
4 Tbsp Organic Unsalted Butter (Vital Farms)
¾ C Organic Plain Greek Yogurt
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and stevia powder.
- In a separate bowl whisk together eggs, maple syrup, Greek yogurt and melted butter.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and gently fold until just combined.
- Scoop into muffin tin, 2 tbsp for mini muffins or ¼ C for regular muffins.
- Top each muffin with desired add-ins – chocolate chips, blueberries or diced strawberries are our favorites. (Alternately, you can gently fold add-ins directly to the batter if you are sticking to a single flavor, or divide batter into separate bowls and gently fold in multiple add-ins.
- Press toppings gently down into batter. I just top after scooping to save dishes. 😊 )
- Bake for 10-12 minutes for minis, 18-20 minutes for regular.
- When you purchase Einkorn Flour, make sure you are getting 100% Einkorn.
- For eggs, you want organic, pastured, and ideally verified non-GMO.
- Regarding yogurt, you should look for yogurt that is from 100% grass-fed cows (which usually are raised organically), whole fat, plain (beware! sometimes “plain” does mean sweetened, but not flavored; we want plain unsweetened), organic would be best. In a perfect world, it would also be from A2 cows. Greek is simply thicker. Some of the liquid is strained out, so it’s more concentrated. You can always strain yourself if you need thicker yogurt.
Taking time to review a recipe’s ingredient list ensures that you can make the healthiest decisions for yourself and your loved ones so that you can ALL stay “Forever Young” feeling together!
p.s. As a small bonus, I have an additional note about cookware: Avoid aluminum – it’s a neurotoxin and builds up in the body, wreaking havoc at the cellular level. Toxins accumulate especially in fat cells, and the brain is mostly fat. An alternative would be stainless steel, baking stones, or maybe silicone.
