Happy LOVE Day friends! Spreading the love today with some heart healthy muffins, full of fibre and antioxidants.
I have always had a sweet tooth and I also love to bake, so naturally I like to create healthy sweet treats.
I am pretty much obsessed with homemade scones, so these muffins are a play on scones. Similar to scones they aren't super sweet and great with a warm beverage.
Give these a try and take some time to enjoy them with some of your loved ones. <3
Makes 12 scone styled muffins
1 + ½ cups whole wheat flour
2 tbsp. hemp seeds
1 tsp. cinnamon
Sprinkle of salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ cup vegetable oil
½ cup plain coconut yogurt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. maple syrup
¼ cup almond milk
¼ cup shredded coconut
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
¼ cup dried blueberries (add more if you'd like).
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a bowl mix vanilla extract, beaten eggs, coconut yogurt, milk, maple syrup, and vegetable oil. In a separate bowl mix together flour, hemp seeds, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and baking soda. Add liquid mixture to dry and mix together well.
Fold raspberries, dried blueberries, and shredded coconut into batter. This will be a very thick mixture (like scones).
Line muffin tins with paper or grease tins.
Bake for 23-24 minutes or until a golden brown colour!
Enjoy with a warm beverage!
