Snickerdoodle Muffins

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup apple sauce
2 teaspoons oil
1/2 cup agave nectar (or 1/3 cup sugar)
2/3 cup almond milk (or skim milk)


1 tablespoon whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar (or sucanat)
1 tablespoon butter (or coconut oil)

Combine wet ingredients, combine dry- mix together until just combined. Place in prepared muffin tins (usually only get 9 miffins). Mix brown sugar and flour together, cut in butter. Sprinkle over muffins. Bake at 400 degrees until done :)

We like this for breakfast or a yummy snack. Sometimes I have the healthier options, sometimes I don't. It's healthy enough for me even without the fancy stuff. Note: Walmart now carries agave. Em, did you ever find out if it was a better deal at wally's or costco? They don't carry it at Sams here. I think Costco in general carries more healthy products than Sams Club. Bummer.

Other note: I love my new wheat grinder. I can make whole wheat pastry flour with it! Also- I know whole wheat flour is more expensive to buy than white flour at the store but if you have a wheat grinder- making your own flour is SO much cheaper than both. I am ordering wheat through the cannery and it's like $7.00 for 25 lbs of wheat. Awesome. I am also ordering beans. Of course all of this is pretty easy for me to say as someone gave me my wheat grinder.

Last note: Did you know you are supposed to keep whole wheat flour in the fridge? Keeps the nutrition longer. It won't go "bad," in the cupboard, but it will lose some nutrients.

Love you guys!

ps- Kate we are having your veggie quesedillas for lunch today! I'll let you know how it goes!
