Plant Based Protein Packed Berry Muffins

Sponsored by Sacred Sun Cooperative

A breakfast blessing or post workout treat! These muffins satisfy your taste for something sweet and fuels your body mineral needs.

Farm fresh, nutrient packed ingredients give these muffins all the strength they need! The story behind the flour used in this recipe is that Sacred Sun Co-op grew winter peas right next to the rye at their farm. When it was time to harvest the rye, the crop of peas somehow got mixed in. Rye is an ancient grain filled with fiber, iron, potassium and more. Combined with the protein content found in peas, this is truly a unique farm fresh offering.

Servings: 6 medium size muffins

Cook Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

2 cups Prye flour from Sacred Sun Cooperative (or your flour of choice)

1/2 cup Hemp seeds

1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats

3/4 Coconut brown sugar

2 tbsp Sea moss gel

1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1 1/2 tsp Salt

2 tsp Baking Powder

1 1/2 cups Coconut milk

2 tbsp Maple syrup

2 cups fresh Berries (I used a cup each of blueberries and blackberries)


Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together; flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and a half cup of brown sugar. (Sifting helps combine ingredients, remove any impurities, and breakdown any clumps).
  3. Grind hemp seeds to a fine meal with a blender or food processor. Add to dry ingredients and mix. 
  4. Make a well in the middle and add in all the wet ingredients except the melted coconut oil. Combine slowly but thoroughly. As everything begins to come together, add in the coconut oil and mix together. Fold in your rinsed berries slowly. Let mixture rest while we prepare the baking sheet.
  5. Lightly oil a muffin tray. With your fingers, make sure all of the surface area is covered. Next, sprinkle a few teaspoons of flour over the muffin tray.
  6. In a medium bowl, mix together the leftover brown sugar with the rolled oats, and 2 tbsp of coconut oil.
  7. Pour your batter in to the muffin tray. Be sure to fill the tray no more than half way high with batter. Top the muffins with the sugar and oat mixture. Place in the center of your oven and bake for 25 minutes.
  8. Check the bread at 25 minutes to see if it has cooked all the way thru to the center. Use a toothpick or a clean small knife to see if any batter sticks to it when you poke it in the center. Keep it in the oven an extra 4 – 8 minutes if it needs to cook through any longer.
  9. When done, let the muffins cool in the tray for at least 7 minutes. Then pop them out on to a cooling rack and let them cool another 10 minutes till serving.

Plant Based French Toast with a Twist!

Spiced Plant-Based French Toast with Raspberry Compote

Today we bring you a refreshing take on a classic breakfast dish, french toast. Made with fresh milled, local bread from two different bakeries here in town. One loaf is a simple whole wheat, similar to the regular store bough loaves, while the other is loaded with dried fruit and walnuts. Freshly ground spices add another dimension to this recipes batter. With the vibrant raspberry compote to top it all off. Try this recipe as another special brunch option for your loved ones.

Servings: 3 – 4

Cook time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

8 – 10 slices of your favorite fresh baked bread (I bought mine from the local bakery and it was stuffed with goodness; hard red wheat, apricots, apples, golden raisins, walnuts, and sea salt)

3/4 bottle of Just egg

2 – 4 cups fresh raspberries

1 tsp whole allspice

1 tsp whole star anise

1/2 tsp whole clove buds

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

Maple syrup (to taste)

2 tbsp powdered sugar (optional)


Recipe

  1. Rinse your berries and add to a medium-small pot with a half cup of water. Bring to a boil, then turn heat to medium-low. Use a wooden or rubber spatula to prevent any berries from sticking or burning at the bottom of the pot.
  2. Add whole spices to mortar & pestle or a spice grinder. Grind till they come in to a fine powder form.
  3. Add Just egg to a wide bowl. Add in spices, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk together till evenly mixed.
  4. Using a serrated knife, slice your loaf of bread in to half inch thick slices. Dip bread slices in to batter mixture, then flip and coat the other side. Place on to a plate till all slices have been battered.
  5. Heat a medium-large skillet on medium-high heat for a couple of minutes. Add two slices of bread at a time. Cook on each side for 3 – 5 minutes, on medium heat. Medium light brown coloring on the slices lets us know the batter is getting cooked all the way through; this the perfect time to take them off the heat!
  6. Check your compote. It should be thick, not runny. Feel free to add a couple tablespoons of maple syrup, a splash of orange juice, and a pinch of salt to your compote. Though this is all optional and not required, this brightens the flavors of the berries.
  7. Plate your french toast with all the slices cut in half, topped with a few dollops of the fresh berry compote, and powdered sugar sprinkle for the classic look. Enjoy with a drizzle of maple syrup and enjoy!

This recipe is so simple yet rich in flavor! In 30 minutes or less, prepare this heart warming breakfast for your family or significant other.
