Spelt orange poppy seed muffins are not too sweet, zingy, moist and delicious.
If you are not into spelt flour, this orange poppy seed muffin recipe is easily adaptable to add your choice of flour. This muffin recipe is a 'one bowl, quick mix, quick bake' ready in 35 minutes from start to finish. In my video, I used a combination of white spelt flour and wholegrain spelt to make them a little healthier. Feel free to make this muffin recipe with your favourite flour or what you hand in your cupboard. If you'd like to use self-raising flour (the UK and Aust.) please omit the baking powder.
These spelt orange poppy seeds muffins are not only fluffy and moist on the first day but stay moist for a few days.
