Moist Spelt Blueberry Muffins
Moist Spelt blueberry muffins are a slightly healthier alternative to wheat muffins and gentle on your digestion. This spelt blueberry muffin recipe is super moist, with a combination of white spelt and wholegrain spelt flour, light brown sugar, soured cream and is what I call a 'quick bake'. My blueberry muffins are quick they only take 15 minutes to whip up using the muffin wet and dry method, then 20 minutes to bake.
Takes = 15 mins
Bakes = 20 mins
Makes = 6 large or 8 smaller muffins
- White Spelt Flour – 75g (1/2 cup + 3 tbsp)

OVEN preheat 170˚C fan and position rack to the lower third of the oven, and prepare your muffin tray by greasing or using paper cases.
WHISK all dry ingredients; flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and sugar
COMBINE all wet ingredients; oil, eggs and soured cream. Gently fold in 100g blueberries.
SCOOP into tray 2/3 full for smaller muffins, a full paper case for larger muffins. Then top with extra blueberries before baking.
BAKE for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool for at least 10 minutes. The muffins taste best to enjoy cooled and not straight from the oven. Even super moist the following day.
