For some, “getting baked” means over-indulging in your partying agent of choice; forgetting it all and let the day flow by until mañana. Naturally, I didn’t resort to anything illegal but I’m thinking there ought to be a law against muffins this moist and tender and bursting with fruit. No, they don’t taste like commercial baked goods – partly because I used less sugar. They’re also free of preservatives and contain no unpronounceable ingredients. I think they’re better but I plead guilty to bias.

Blueberry Spelt Muffins

Blueberry Spelt Muffins

These muffins were born of fresh blueberries, butter, eggs, spelt flour and whole cane sugar (I used Sucanat). It’s the spelt that gives these muffins a slightly nutty, grainy taste. Between using less sugar and the high-fiber, nutrient-dense flour, these muffins could serve as a healthier, homemade alternative if you’re really jonesing for something sweet to munch. See Whole Foods for the  Blueberry Spelt Muffins recipe. I found helpful ideas for modifications in the comment section. Might be worth taking a look.

    I must try that! Oh, and I totally agree – nothing, but nothing compares to homemade.
