Whole Grain Kitchen Sink Muffins are healthy and packed full of good things like walnuts, dried cranberries, coconut and orange zest. They are sweetened with blue agave instead of sugar and made with sprouted wheat flour.
Sprouted wheat flour is made from wheat kernels that have been allowed to sprout. Once they have sprouted, they are dried and ground into a whole grain flour. Sprouted wheat flour is nutrient rich. Sprouting starts a chemical change to the grains so they have more vitamins and less starch than whole wheat.
This easy recipe is put together in one bowl, no mixer needed. They only take 20 minutes to bake and are a great breakfast warm from the oven.
Sprouted wheat flour can replace all purpose flour in the same ratio to make things a bit more healthy. You could also just replace part of the all purpose flour.
