It was a fun morning with a bit of chaos in the mix and this recipe came to me, by chance. I was making muffins, something healthy to have on hand, and something dairy free. And while beginning the recipe, which would include oat flour, I thought of our Hidden Rose Tea (all organic like the others, and this one with 2 types of white tea and baby organic rose petals). It is aromatic, a bit earthy, and naturally sweet. So, here it is – a recipe with a base of oat and spelt flours and the Hidden Rose blend ground in a spice grinder and added to the mix! This harmonious mixture, new recipe is easy to make, and a good one to share on Valentines Day or any day of the year.
Blend together with a whisk:
1/3 cup nut-milk (I used hazelnut milk)
1/4 cup walnut oil (or your choice of oil)
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons (or more) natural vanilla
1/4 cup Turbinado sugar
Add and blend:
1/2 cup oat flour (or ground oatmeal/make your own flour)
1/2 cup spelt flour
1 tablespoon Leaf & Ardor Hidden Rose tea (1 T once ground in a spice grinder)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
A pinch of Himalayan sea salt
A pinch of ground nutmeg
Pour into cupcake paper-lined muffin tins. Sprinkle each with a few rose petals. Bake at 350˙ for approximately 10 minutes. Makes 8 scrumptious and healthy muffins.
