Healthy homemade millet granola gives a crunchy topping and nutritional boost to these tasty spelt muffins. The plums and yogurt help keep them moist longer and they freeze well. Enjoy these muffins for breakfast or anytime you feel like a snack.

  • 125 g Wholegrain spelt flour
  • 125 g Refined spelt flour
  • 70 g Raw sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 70 ml Walnut oil
  • 150 g 3.5% Plain yogurt
  • 1 Large egg, lightly beaten
  • 180 g Millet granola
  • 220 g Plums, stoned and diced
  1. Whisk wholegrain spelt flour, refined spelt flour, raw sugar, salt and baking powder together in a mixing bowl.
  2. In another bowl, mix walnut oil, plain yogurt, and egg until combined. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture, stirring until barely combined.
  3. Fold in 120 grams of granola and diced plums. Divide the batter into a 12-cup muffin pan and top with the rest of granola. Bake for about 20 minutes until the tops are nicely golden brown and crunchy.

Lena 24/8/12 20:50

These muffins are great for breakfast, and they are not to sweet. But I think it is enough to eat one of them, because after that I was full. They pleased me the best the second day. Thank you for this recipe.

Priscilla | ShesCookin 24/8/12 23:25

I still have a few plums left from a growers tour that are a little overripe and would be perfect in muffins - love your array of spelt recipes, Angie.

Hi Angie, lovely muffins. I think I can have 2 or 3 no problem, got coffee?
