Plum Einkorn Streusel Muffins | © 2017 |

A mildly sweet streusel topping with hazelnut meal adds a sweet crunch and extra flavour to this plum muffin. It is quick and easy to toss together and a winner for an afternoon coffee or tea break. If you like, dress up these muffins with a drizzle of a sweet glaze, like basic powdered sugar icing or white chocolate glaze for extra richness and sweetness.

StreuselMuffin Batter
  • 80 g Einkorn flour
  • 40 g Hazelnut meal
  • 15 g Coconut sugar
  • 50 g Butter, chilled and cubed
  • 170 g Butter, softened
  • 50 g Coconut sugar
  • 2 Eggs, medium
  • 1 tsp Vanilla powder
  • 250 g Einkorn flour
  • 3/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 250 ml Kefir
  • 350 g Plums, stoned and diced
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan or ramekins with paper liners.
  2. Combine all the ingredients for the streusel in a bowl. Using fingertips, rub together until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Set aside while you make the muffin batter.
  3. Cream the softened butter and coconut sugar in a bowl. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla powder. Whisk together the einkorn flour and baking soda. Add half of the flour mixture to the butter mixture and fold until just incorporated, then add in kefir and finally the rest of the flour mixture. Fold until well combined. It is very important not to overmix the batter or muffins won't be tender and soft.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cups and top with a few pieces of diced plums. Sprinkle the crumble topping over the plums. Bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 minutes to cool before transferring to a wire rack to cool slightly. | © 2017 | | © 2017 | | © 2017 |

I bet these delicious muffins don't need the extra sweetness from an icing - I wouldn't want to cover up the wonderful flavors. Plums are a fantastic fruit!

I just love a streusel muffin and I also adore plums, such an underused fruit in North America. In Europe there are so many dishes that incorporate plums, savory and sweet. I love how you incorporate einkorn into the recipe, so healthy.

mjskit 19/6/17 02:27

If I ate muffins, these would be the kind I would want to eat.
