Black Sesame Spelt Muffins

Labels: { , , }

Great as a lunch box filler, for potlucks or really any time, these simple muffins are moist, tender, flavourful and relatively healthy too. Using toasted black sesame adds distinctive flavour and aroma to them.

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Line a 6-hole muffin tin with paper liners. Sift together the flour and baking powder. Beat butter until soft. Beat in sugars until fluffy and light. Beat in egg and vanilla extract.
  2. Fold in 1/2 of the flour mixture with a rubber spatula to combine. Now mix in almond milk. Then add in the rest of the flour mixture and black sesame seeds. Fold until the batter is combined. Divide the batter among 6 muffin liners. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in center of muffins comes out clean.

This sounds fabulous. The black sesame and spelt should make a great combination and pronounced flavor. Great recipe Angie, I'm going to have to make this.

Angie, I'm loving the black sesame seeds in these muffins! I try to eat as much of them as I can for their health benefits. I've traditionally seen them in savory preparations so I'm so excited to try them in a sweet muffin!

I imagine the sesame gives these muffins such a great flavour, like the sound of the nutty spelt too!

Every afternoon, I crave a piece of bread to fulfill my cravings for carbs. Looks like I'll have to switch to your muffins in the future! I never knew what splelt flour was and just looked it up. Looks like it's healthy although the online research says refined spelt flour is lower in carbs than 'ordinary splelt.' (I'm learning all the time)!

Julie 20/11/19 07:50
