Honey-Kissed Baklava Muffins

I am happy. That is all. Many thanks to the Edible Perspective. The only changes I made from the original recipe were swapping margarine for butter and using store-bought buckwheat flour instead of making it fresh.

Muffins:

  • 1/2 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 3/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons ground flax meal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk, or soy, 2%, etc.
  • 1/2 cup clover honey
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons dairy-free margarine, melted and slightly cooled

Filling:

  • 1 1/4 cups chopped unsalted pistachios and walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons clover honey
  • 2 tablespoons diary-free margarine, melted
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Topping:

  • Honey to drizzle, about 1 teaspoon per muffin
  • 1/3 cup chopped unsalted pistachios and walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons dairy-free margarine, melted and slightly cooled
  1. Preheat your oven to 350* F and line 1-2 standard muffin tins with 12-16 liners. (I ended up putting my extra dough into a small 4×4 inch baking dish.)
  2. In a large bowl stir together the oat flour, buckwheat flour, almond meal, flax, cinnamon, powder, soda, and salt. In another bowl whisk together the eggs. Then whisk in the applesauce, milk, honey, and vanilla until fully combined. Wait to add the margarine.
  3. In another bowl stir all of the “filling” ingredients together until fully incorporated. Set aside.
  4. Whisk in the 1/4 cup melted butter to the wet ingredients then pour the wet into the dry and stir or whisk until just combined [when you no longer see dry flour]. Fold in the nut mixture and portion into muffin liners about 3/4 the way full.
  5. Bake muffins for 17-22 minutes and test with a toothpick for doneness [slightly moist, not sticky]. Let muffins cool for about 7-10 minutes.  Keeping muffins in their liners drizzle a small amount of honey over each muffin, then a sprinkle of nuts, then another small drizzle of honey, and then about 1/2 teaspoon melted margarine over each.  Let fully cool.  Muffins will firm and hold together once cooled.

NORTH/CENTRAL EUROPEAN: Blueberry Coffee Cake

I think that if I post any more recipes from Simply in Season, I just may be in trouble. This is my variation on their recipe.

Cake:

  • ¾ cup spelt flour
  • ¾ cup kamut flour
  • 1/3 cup fructose or sweetener of your choice
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups blueberries
  • 1 tsp lemon peel
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup soymilk
  • ¼ cup Earth Balance margarine

Topping:

  • ¼ cup fructose or sweetener of your choice
  • 1/3 cup spelt flour
  • 1/3 cup walnuts or other nuts (chopped)
  • 2 TBSP Earth Balance margarine
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

1. 1. Combine the flour, sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.

2. 2. Gently fold in the blueberries and lemon peel.

3. 3. Whisk together the egg, milk, and margarine in a small bowl. Add to flour mixture and stir carefully. Batter will be stiff. Spread into greased 8 x 8-inch baking pan.

4. 4. Mix together the ingredients for the topping until crumbly and sprinkle over batter.

5. 5. Bake in preheated oven at 425˚F until top is light golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Try it with warm milk poured on top.

FUSION: Carob Clusters

Though carob comes from the Mediterranean, I don’t know if they imagined eating it this way.

Angela, we ate these daily the month before my wedding. You always know how to cheer me up with food. We did have a hard time waiting from them to set. Sometimes we just had to put them in the freezer to speed up the process.

1 cup carob chips
1/3 cup peanut butter
½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans

1. Place carob chips and peanut butter in a small bowl and melt in microwave (or in a double boiler). Stir until evenly combined.
2. Stir in nuts and quickly drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper.
3. Let set until hard. Store in refrigerator.

For a different taste, replace nuts with ½ cup raisins or ½ cup rice crispies.
