Today I am trying something new. I am making Amaranth muffins with Aronia Berries. These muffins are bursting with protein, fibre and minerals and they taste so so so nice.
When Erbology approached me to try their Amaranth flour and Aronia Berries I got very excited and immediately said yes. I love trying new things and always challenge myself to come up with tasty and easy recipes. This is where these Amaranth Muffins with Aronia Berries come in.
What is Amaranth flour?
Amaranth is a unique plant and a powerhouse of fibre, protein and other nutrients. It's naturally gluten free and has a lovely nutty flavour. It contains all 9 essential amino acids including lysine, an essential amino acid which is lacking in most plants. Amaranth is not a new "trendy" food. It has been around for centuries. It's nature's superfood. In this recipe I combined the amaranth flour with spelt flour to give it a lighter texture.
What are Aronia Berries?
They are deep purple berries loaded with vitamin K, C, manganese and other amazing nutrients. They are mostly known for their anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant health benefits. They have mild sweet flavour with a bit of tartness.
These muffins are packed with wholesome nutrition… and they taste lovely too, so they give you the best of both worlds!
If you whip up a big batch at the weekend, the extra muffins can easily be frozen for meal prep, to have on hand any time a craving hits.Try serving them with my Pumpkin Spice Latte or this Dalgona Coffee. Also if you are looking for a good muffin tins, these ones are the one I use.
