Blueberry and Chia Spelt Muffins

Healthy treats are my favourite things to make and my four children seem to enjoy it too! My love of healthy treats is due to the fact that I enjoy the challenge of making something that tastes amazing that is also great for the body! My Blueberry and Chia Spelt Muffins definitely tick both of those boxes and don’t take long to make.

Blueberries are a tasty superfood that are perfect for using in muffins because of the colour and the flavour that they provide. They are so good for you because they contain high levels of antioxidants that work to protect our bodies and prevent cell damage. Research also suggests that blueberries can improve your memory and cognitive function when eaten regularly. As with all foods, I would recommend the organic kind for maximum health benefits but if you can’t get hold of them then regular blueberries will still do wonders for your body!

To make a delicious batch of my muffins for yourself you will need the following ingredients:

2/3 cup coconut palm sugar
1/3 cup honey
2 Tbsp. chia seeds mixed with 6 Tbsp. water (allow to absorb for 10 minutes)
1/2 cup almond milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups spelt flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

IMG_1005First you will need to preheat the oven to 180C/375F. Next you must line a muffin tin with paper muffin liners. Then, in a large bowl, add in the coconut sugar and then stir in honey, chia mixture, almond milk and vanilla.

In a second large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Then stir the spelt flour mixture into the chia mixture until it is combined well. The next stage is to gently stir in the blueberries. Finally, spoon the batter into muffin liners and then bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. This should take about 30 minutes. You can then leave to cool briefly before you enjoy or even share!
