Sprouted Spelt Vanilla Cardamon Muffins

These delectable muffins magically seem to vanish the moment they are out of the oven and cool enough to eat.

Sprouted Spelt Vanilla Cardamon Muffins

1 cup One Degree Sprouted Spelt Flour

1/2 cup almonds, ground

1/2 cup organic cane sugar or coconut palm sugar

2 tablespoons One Degree Flax Seeds, ground

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons double-acting aluminum free baking powder

7 tablespoons coconut oil

1 1/2 teaspoons cardamon, ground

1 teaspoon vanilla paste

1/2 – 3/4 cup almond or soy milk



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a muffin pan.

In a bowl, combine the sprouted spelt flour, ground almonds, sugar, ground flax seeds, salt, and baking powder.

In a separate bowl combine the coconut oil, vanilla paste, cardamon and soy or almond milk. Gently stir wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, be sure to work quickly. Add more milk if necessary.

Divide batter among the muffin tins and place in the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.

Let cool slightly before removing from muffin pan.


Yield: Approximately 6 muffins


  1. These look great! As I am not vegan, can I substitute an egg for the 2 T. flax seed? Or is there another alternate substitute?


    • Hi Anna, Substituting an egg in this recipe should work just fine. 1 tablespoon of flax seed to 3 tablespoons of water is generally the equivalent to 1 egg. I hope you enjoy them! Happy baking!

  2. What is vanilla paste?

    • Hi Jaclyn, vanilla bean paste is an easy alternative to using whole vanilla beans as the paste includes the vanilla pod seeds like you would get if scraping out the vanilla bean. If you don’t have it you can substitute pure vanilla extract. Happy baking!
