Moist & Delicious Wheat Germ Muffins

What you need: 

1 cup nondairy milk
1-1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/4 cup (heaping) wheat germ (I used Hodgson Mill Cinnamon and Flax brand)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 small ripe banana, mashed
1/2 cup applesauce

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Measure soy milk into a small bowl and add cider vinegar. Let sit while you measure out the other ingredients.
3. In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients (flour, sugar, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt); thoroughly mix. Add the mashed banana, applesauce, and nondairy milk-vinegar mixture; stir until well mixed, but don't over mix. Fill muffin pan.
4. Bake in oven for 20 to 25 minutes (depending on your oven). Let cool and enjoy!

This is a great recipe!! I used whole spelt flour instead of whole wheat, and for the sugar, I used 1/4 cup of raw sugar and 1/4 cup of molasses! I also added unsweetened coconut. Mmmmmm...!! I will definitely be keeping this scrumptious muffin recipe, thanks!


Yummy muffins.

I modified them a little by using mostly whole wheat pastry flour and a little regular whole wheat flour because I didn't have a full two cups. I'd make these again but add some dried fruit (probably blueberry).

They were a good basic muffin but there wasn't a strong distinctive flavor.
