Ezekiel Muffins

"Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself..." Ezekiel 4:9a

Ezekiel Muffins

Here's a wonderful recipe from Bread Beckers. My mother-in-law, Sheila, taught me how to use her whisper mill and we made the muffins together. This recipe makes delicious muffins for breakfast or anytime! We added blueberries that I had picked.

*Recipe makes 12 large muffins.

Combine the following whole grains in the whisper mill to be ground:

* 2-1/2 cups hard red wheat
* 1-1/2 cups spelt or rye (Biblically spelt was used, Ezekiel 4:9)
* 1/2 cup barley (hulled barley)
* 1/4 cup millet
* 1/4 cup lentils (green preferred)
* 2 Tbs. great northern beans
* 2 Tbs. red kidney beans
* 2 Tbs. pinto beans

Mix all of those grains very well. Take 2 1/4 cups of this flour to make your muffins.

Preheat the oven to 400 for muffins.

Muffin ingredients:

2 & 1/4 cups of freshly milled flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1/2 cup oil ( I use olive oil, can use other)
1/2 cup honey (I measure oil first, then I measure honey in the same measuring cup. It makes the honey come out easier.)

Measure dry ingredients into mixing bowl. Add liquids and mix just until well blended. Drop by spoonfuls into greased muffin tins. Bake at 400 for 15 min.
To make them blueberry: Add 1 & 1/2 cups of berries and 1 tsp. cinnamon

  1. Excellent - used homade yogurt in place of buttermilk, and everything else just as posted, along with the blueberries. Thank you!
