My husband loves the Seinfeld show, to be honest, about 11 years ago, when I first met him, I wasn’t a big fan, I mean I could watch one episode, maybe two, but watching the same one twice or even multiple times sure wasn’t for me! Or so I thought, the characters slowly grew on me and I started to like it, then I too learned most of the jokes our friends were making referring to the show and finally I started to take part in the conversation.
Remember the Seinfeld episode where they go to the coffee shop with their own maple syrup and they are told the maple syrup would be confiscated next time they bring it to the coffee shop because the coffee shop doesn’t accept food from outside? Well, we had a good laugh about that when I suggested bringing these muffins for little Sara and Georgia.
Anyway, at the risk of getting the little muffins confiscated I brought each girl one and I am happy to say that no one really cared about me bringing food from outside and I am even happier to say that I think they gave me their seal of approval.
These muffins are not very sweet, if you have a sweet tooth increase the sugar to about half a cup or more if you prefer.
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup Sucanat or brown sugar
- ½ cup yogurt or buttermilk
- ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil or virgin coconut oil
- ¾ cup spelt flour
- ½ cup quinoa flour
- ¼ cup arrowroot powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- Pinch of fine sea salt
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 ½ cups frozen blueberries
Preheat the oven to 350F, line a muffin tin with 6 jumbo or 12 medium muffin liners.
In a bowl mix the dry ingredients, set aside. Whisk the eggs with the Sucanat for about a minute, add the yogurt or buttermilk and olive oil, slowly incorporate the flour mixture using a spatula, and do not over mix the batter as it would make the muffins dense and tough. Fold in the frozen blueberries and spoon the batter in the prepared muffin cups.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffin comes out clean; the baking time will vary depending on the size of the muffin cups.
