- 2 cups whole grain spelt flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar (I use organic cane sugar)generous 1/2 cup honey (leave it to me to run out of sugar) 1/3 cup raisins1/2 cup chopped prunes
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water, mixed and set aside for 5 minutes)
- 1 & 1/4 cup shredded zucchini (leave skin on), packed
1 tbsp lemon zest 2 tsp fresh lemon juice2 tsp. lemony stuff (?) 1 tbsp pure maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener) No oil1/3 cup olive oil 1 & 1/4 cups non-dairy milk (I used vanilla almond milk)1 cup whole cow's milk
- Cinnamon Streusel topping:
2 tsp non-dairy margarine/butter1 tbsp Artisana Pecan Butter, 1 tbsp coarse sugar (like turbinado)1 tbsp sugar, 1 tbsp flour, 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 400F according to Angela's directions - my oven still sucks and this is the last recipe that I'm baking in it! Seriously, I'm not baking anything else until I get a new oven. It keeps messing everything up! Mix the flax egg and set aside.
Oil a regular-sized loaf pan and then line it with parchment paper so you can easily pull out the loaf when cooled.
Line a muffin pan.
2. In a large bowl, whisk the dry ingredients (flour, powders, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg,
prunes, and walnuts).
3. In another large bowl, combine the wet ingredients (flax egg, shredded zucchini,
lemon zest & juice
lemony stuff, honey
little) sister [who turns 20 today, yay for Big Sis!] says that if the whole medicine thing doesn't work out, I can scare small children for a living. So what would that make me, in professional terms? A clown? The Boogeyman? Lady Gaga?
4. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until just mixed. Be careful not to overmix the batter as spelt flour is delicate. I might have over-mixed - whoopsies!
5. Spoon the batter into prepared
muffin pan and spread out evenly. Prepare the cinnamon streusel and then sprinkle on top. Bake for about 37-40 minutes at 400F or until toothpick comes out clean. Trust Angela with this step, my oven was a total fail, as usual - overdone on the top, underdone on the bottom!
