Lemon Blueberry Millet Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Millet Muffins

I have been experimenting with new grains and my latest discovery is MILLET!

Slightly larger than an uncooked quinoa seed, millet is a gluten-free cereal grain eaten throughout Asia and Africa.

Millet can be soaked and cooked like oats for a nourishing porridge, puffed like rice and made into bars, or left uncooked and added to baked goods for a satisfying crunch.

The latter was the plan for these muffins.

I wanted something for breakfast that had a granular crunch while still being soft and muffin-like.

*Note, I believe not soaking the millet means less bio-availability of nutrients.

**If you like the granularity of coarse grind cornmeal, you will like these. The mouth feel is definitely sandy.

DIRECTIONS

Line a jumbo muffin tin. [Chlorine-free ‘jumbo baking cups‘]. These can be surprisingly hard to find in a store. This brand is pretty clean and does not stick to inside of muffin tin, or to the muffin itself.

Mix millet, oat bran, sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.

Whisk eggs, vanilla, vegetable oil, lemon zest and milk in another bowl.

Add wet to dry; mix until combined. Let sit for a minute.

Fold in blueberries.

Scoop into jumbo muffin tin.

Bake 350 F at convection setting for 30 min or until toothpick inserted runs clean. 

**These muffins do not rise much, but they are Satya approved.
