This past weekend was dark, cool and rainy, which kept us inside for the most part. When confined to the indoors my three year old daughter and I love to bake. It gives us an activity to do together as well as a snack to have afterwards.
These banana muffins made with sprouted spelt flour and coconut oil will not disappoint. The sprouted spelt flour is nutrient rich (in their more digestible forms), high in protein and full of flavour. The coconut oil is easier to metabolize than other oil products and also has a wonderful flavour.
Pour yourself a cup of coffee, kick back and enjoy these delicious and healthy muffins!
