Blueberry Spelt Muffins

Made the batter a couple nights in advance; froze it in the muffin tin, removed from the tin once frozen (easy when gently pried with a butter knife), and put the “muffins” into a freezer bag. Put a few back into the tin when I was ready to bake this morning. Had read that baking time should be extended by 10 minutes for pre-frozen batter, but the original baking time proved sufficient.

This recipe is for one dozen, but unless you overload the cups, it makes more like 14 in my experience.

  • 4 T canola oil, plus more for greasing the pan
  • 1/2 C honey or agave nectar
  • 1/3 C unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 C fresh orange juice
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 2 C spelt flour (or whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 2 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 2 C fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin or line with paper muffin liners. In a large bowl, mix oil and agave nectar. Stir in applesauce, eggs, orange juice and vanilla. In a second large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir flour mixture into oil-egg mixture until just combined. Gently fold in blueberries. Spoon batter into muffin cups and bake until a toothpick or knife inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean—about 30 minutes.
