Soaked Flour Whole Grain Frozen Berries Muffin Recipe

Yum! My kids loved helping me make (and eat!) some delicious soaked-flour berry muffins we adapted from another recipe. They helped me mix, measure, and add the largest berries to the center of each muffin. My daughter liked to see the top of the berries poking out, while Son #1 wound up pushing them all the way under.

Working carefully, helping together

Soaked Flour Whole Grain Frozen Berries Muffin Recipe

(Makes 2 dozen muffins)

4 cups fresh ground white wheat flour
1/4 cup fresh ground oat flour
1/4 cup fresh ground Kamut
1/2 tsp yeast

1 1/2 cups yogurt
1/4 cup milk

1 to 1 1/2 cups Rapadura or Succanat

4 eggs, beaten, room temp
7 oz (200 ml) coconut oil, liquid
4 tsp vanilla extract

3 1/2 cups frozen mixed berries

Mix together flours, yeast, 2 TB Rapadura, yogurt and milk and allow to sit, covered with cloth, overnight on the counter.

The next morning, prepare muffin pans and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Stir together eggs, coconut oil and vanilla extract.

Mix berries and remaining sugar into flour and yogurt. Add in egg mixture and stir until combined.

Fill muffin cups and bake for 25-35 minutes.

Watching the muffins bake ... "Are they done yet?"

Variations:

Reserve 24 large berries and put them in the centers of each filled muffin cup.

I used 1 cup succanat, but the original recipe called for 1.5 cups of sugar and would be sweeter that way.
Delicious Berry Muffins and raw milk!

Do you think this might work for a scone type muffin?
