Coconut, sultana, hazelnut and chocolate muffins


150 g semi-whole wheat flour
100 g whole oat flour
50 g coconut flakes
50 g golden flax seeds, finely ground
2 tablespoons cornstarch, GMO-free
a pinch of whole sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
60 ml extra virgin olive oil
110 g rice malt syrup
130 g coconut milk
150 ml oat milk, unflavoured and unsweetened
2 handfuls of sultana raisins, soaked in filtered water for 10-15 minutes then drained
a handful of hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
100 g dark chocolate (70% cacao), coarsely chopped

Makes about 12 muffins.

Coconut, sultana, hazelnut and chocolate muffinsDirections

Preheat oven to 180° C. In a large bowl, combine the wheat flour, oat flour, coconut flakes, flax seeds, cornstarch, salt, baking soda and baking powder and stir to blend. In another bowl combine olive oil, rice malt syrup, coconut milk, oat milk and whisk well. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir gently until the ingredients are combined but don’t over mix the batter. Add the raisins, hazelnuts and chocolate and stir just to make sure they’re evenly incorporated into the batter. Fill the muffin cups or muffin tray with the batter, using a spoon. Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and a toothpick or knife inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from the oven, let cool for a couple of minutes, unmold the muffins and place them on a wire rack to cool.

I keep seeing mention of sultanas on blogs lately. I’d never even heard of them before. I guess they aren’t sold around here, but they sound amazing.

Mihl, thank you! I too loved every single ingredient :)

Alessandra, una cuoca come te sprovvista di teglia da muffin?!

Bianca, I’m sure you have them, maybe you call them raisins?
