Muffin Monday - Sunflower Wheat Muffins

Was today a busy day? It's 8 p.m. and I'm just getting our Muffin Monday post up. Yes, it was a busy day. BUT, it was a terrific day! We got in a full day of lessons, we made applesauce, we listened to a history lecture on castles, we read about the Vikings, we watched two Math-U-See video lessons, and we did get around to baking this week's muffins around 4 p.m. These really are delicious -- enjoy!

Sunflower Wheat Muffins
inspiration here
makes 12 muffins

1 c. + 1 T. shelled, unsalted sunflower seeds, divided
2 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. sea salt
1 egg
1/4 c. butter, melted
3 T. raw honey
1 c. milk

Preheat oven to 375F and grease muffin cups with coconut oil or line with paper baking cups.

Measure and stir together the flour, baking powder, 2/3 c. of the sunflower seeds, and sea salt in a large mixing bowl.

Measure 1/3 c. sunflower seeds into food processor and process until finely ground; stir into flour mixture.

In a small bowl, beat egg. Stir in oil, honey, and milk. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir just until blended; don't over mix your muffin batter! Fill prepared muffin cups about 2/3 each with batter. Top each muffin with a light sprinkling of sunflower seeds.

Bake 15 - 20 minutes until lightly golden; check with a toothpick to be sure they're done. Cool slightly before removing muffins to a wire rack.

Bon appetit!
