The flavours of almond milk, coconut, raisin and poppy seed pair nicely in these jumbo spelt muffins, that are sweetened with erythritol and coconut sugar. Feel free to substitute spelt flour with the regular wheat flour.
Erythritol is a sugar substitute that looks and tastes like sugar, yet has almost no calories. It is available in both granulated and powdered forms. It is approximately 70% as sweet as sucrose and is safe for people with diabetes.

Poppy Coconut FillingBatter
  • 350 ml Almond milk
  • 30 g Coconut sugar
  • 70 g Erythritol
  • 2 tsp Grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 30 g Coconut oil
  • 200 g Poppy seeds, ground
  • 50 g Desiccated coconut flakes
  • 150 g Raisins
  • 200 g Spelt pastry flour
  • 80 g Wholegrain spelt flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 50 g Coconut sugar
  • 50 g Erythritol
  • 1/3 tsp Salt
  • 50 g Olive oil
  • 2 Small eggs
  • 220 ml Kefir
  1. Place almond milk, coconut sugar, erythritol, lemon zest, cinnamon, coconut oil, ground poppy seeds, coconut flakes in a saucepan. Bring it to a simmer. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes. Stir in raisins. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F.
  2. Whisk together flours, baking soda, coconut sugar, erythritol and salt in a mixing bowl. In another bowl, whisk together olive oil, eggs and kefir until well combined.
  3. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the egg mixture. Mix until just incorporated. Divide half of the batter into 6 jumbo muffin cups or 10 regular ones. Fill each muffin with 1 tablespoon of poppy mixture. Save the rest of the filling for other recipes. Now cover them with the rest of batter.
  4. Bake the muffins in the middle of the hot oven for 30 minutes if using the jumbo muffin pan, and 20 minutes for a regular one, until nicely golden brown.

Love poppy seed muffins! I'm curious-does the erithritol also measure like real sugar?

Angie's Recipes 12/1/17 07:55

Eva Taylor 16/1/17 23:27

These muffins look wonderful and I am assuming they are quite healthy too. I had not heard of Erythritol before but I'll look it up. Usually, I am not a fan of synthetic sweeteners (not even sure if it is synthetic) but I'll definitely research it as I'm always looking for lower calorie options.

Claudia 17/1/17 02:07

These are scrumptious, Angie. And you introduced me to a new sugar substitute. I love using almond milk - and since my son-in-law is lactose-intolerant - I use it more and more. Muffins are pure comfort in January.
