I generally suck at baking and I’m relatively new at baking with spelt so I was absolutely convinced that these were going to turn out like hockey pucks but you know what? They didn’t. They were great.
The berries added a nice moisture and sweetness, the chia seeds added a little crunch. And while these are rather dense and calorie laden muffins, they aren’t heavy on your stomach and are just filling enough.
