  • 2 cups spelt flour (sprouted - or all purpose white)
  • 1 cup cane sugar (or brown sugar - not packed)

  • .50 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg

  • Preheat oven 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the spelt flour, brown sugar, salt and baking soda. Mix ingredients with a dough cutter
  • Add the egg, milk, yogurt and olive oil. Mix with rubber spatula until just combined.
  • Add chocolate chips and fold in with a spatula. Be careful not to overmix
  • Line muffin pan with parchment paper cups
  • Spoon the dough into the cups. I fill the cups to the top
  • Place muffin pan into the oven and bake for 20 minutes until the tester comes out clean
  • Let muffins cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing them and placing them on a wire rack

Helpful tips
  • If you don't have spelt flour, a good substitute is all purpose, white flour.
  • I usually use brown sugar but I only had really dark sugar so I used cane sugar. Use whichever sugar you prefer.
  • I don't like to sift my dry ingredients together unless I really have to. Instead, I use a pastry blender to break up any chunks and to mix them together.
  • You don't have to use two different kinds of chocolate chips, but I love combining big 60% cocoa Ghirardelli chips and chocolate chunks.
  • Be careful not to over mix the batter. I mix just until almost combined before I fold in the chocolate chips.
