Berry Muffins (wheat-free, vegan)

Perhaps you have an easy Sunday, or perhaps you’re having a formal afternoon tea party. In either case, some muffins are a great idea.  Often we find muffins are too bland, or too dense, and when you go into veganizing or wheat-free options the moisture and bready texture seems to suffer along with it.  We have you covered- sweet, moist, tart, doesn’t fall apart… but isn’t like biting into a sponge.  Please note: SPELT flour is used, making them wheat free (debatable) but NOT gluten free.  Feel free to substitute your favourite GF flour mix, but you may want to add in some hearty flours like a coconut to give you some stronger textures.

Preheat to 325 degrees, and set aside 3/4 cup of frozen berries (we use a mix of raspberries and blueberries, but any will do at about that size). See that picture? That’s why frozen, reduce the hollow space around the berries, while keeping them moist and full of flavor. Save some money, get peak season (ie better nutrition), and they’ll keep until you need ’em.
