Seedy Saturday… Seedy Muffins

But first… a bathroom update: The shower is tiled (hurray!), the glass has arrived and is waiting to be installed. The only thing standing in the way of the glass: grout and the tiling of the shower floor… next weekend for sure! (double hurray!) Oh, and it looks like it’s time for me to sand the doors and apply some varnish; yes, I do help with the renovations. I’ll have to tell you about the staircase some day…

This past weekend, we trudged off to our local seedy Saturday. It wasn’t a huge event, but it was just the right size when you have a pre-schooler in toe. I went with one mission: to find some pea seeds for the pea teepee I’m planning in my daughter’s vegetable garden. Mission accomplished. I also bought:

  • lettuce mix (I had success growing lettuce in an old wheelbarrow last summer and plan to do the same again this year)
  • edible flower mix, which I plan to grow in a large container
  • lemon cucumbers for Mo’s garden
  • yellow beans, also for Mo’s garden and to share with Gramma

I guess we are also going to grow some beans. The lady running the kid’s craft area set us up with some beans so that we can see how a seed turns into a plant. Hopefully they grow or we will learn how bad I am at growing things from seed! We also did some seedy art!

A couple weeks back I hinted at a seedy muffin recipe. I really enjoy these muffins. I found it on this website. I should mention that this is the perfect recipe if you want to involve your little ones. My daughter had a great time carefully putting the seeds on the top of each muffin before baking. I did a little tweaking to the recipe. Here’s what I did:

Super Seedy Muffins

Seedy Muffins

  • 1-3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2  tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds (plus more for the top)
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower seeds (plus more for the top)
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin seeds (plus more for the top)
  • 2 tablespoons hulled millet
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups 1% yogurt
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a muffin pan with paper wrappers. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt; whisk in sesame, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, millet and flaxseeds.

In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, honey and oil. Pour over flour mixture; stir just until combined (do not overmix).

Spoon into 12 lined muffin cups. Sprinkle with extra seeds, if desired. Bake in centre of oven until skewer inserted in centre of muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack.
