Putting together poppy seeds & Nutiva hemp seeds was the best idea ever and no, I’m not a drug dealer. I had no clue these flavors would work so well together…These muffins turned out to be so good!
I am always on the hunt for the best available products to try (nutritionally speaking of course) so I was super excited to try Einkorn, an ancient grain that is the most ancient form of wheat that has not been hybridized or denatured in any way. It’s higher in vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein than the typical whole wheat flour products you see on store shelves. “Einkorn is a rare gift, untouched by modern influence.”
Jovial Foods sent me several different products to try and I’ve already broke into all them. I substituted wheat berries for this quinoa recipe, added almond butter to their cookies and tried their pasta. Trying this flour on the other hand, was the true test of this ancient grain. Could it make a moist and fluffy muffin? Well…. yes… it did and all 6 of the muffins I made last night have all been deliciously consumed!
