Orange Poppy-Seed Muffins

One of my biggest inspirations when making soap is food.  Apparently, anything that I love to eat, I’d also love to slather on my body.  So when I developed the Orange Poppy-seed soap recipe, it gave me quite a craving for some muffins.  Which I was glad to oblige with some baking.

I’ve experimented like crazy with my sprouted flour.  Unfortunately, I’ve had a lot more failures than successes.  Mostly, I blame the 1:1 ratio that I used for all my grains and legumes.  Really, I’ve been working on an Ezekiel bread recipe but I think I’ve got to boost the grains’ ratio vs the beans to get the texture right.  But first – we’re using up the sprouted flour mix that I’ve already made . . .

When I tried this with 100% sprouted flour, the texture was too crumbly and heavy so I recommend adding in all-purpose or bread flour to lighten it up.  With this recipe, I used our sprouted flour but you can definitely substitute a regular whole wheat flour or even just use 100% all-purpose.
