When temperatures plummet to record-breaking lows (-3 this morning in sunny NC) this is the best thing to do. These muffins are satisfying without being too sweet. Serve warm with plenty of sweet cream butter.
*2 cups high quality AP flour
*2/3 cup whole wheat flour
*1/2 cup brown sugar
*4 teaspoons baking powder
*1/2 teaspoon sea salt
*2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
*1 cup raisins
*1/4 cup golden flax seeds
*6 Tablespoons melted coconut oil, olive oil or butter
*2 fresh eggs
*1 cup whole milk or buttermilk
*cinnamon sugar for crumb top
Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin with butter or coconut oil.
Mix dry ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl, including raisins and flax seeds.
Whisk wet ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Blend into dry ingredients until just fully incorporated. Spoon batter into muffin wells. Sprinkle liberally with a mixture of brown sugar, white sugar and cinnamon. Bake on middle oven rack for about 15 minutes or until a wooden test stick comes out clean.
Gently dislodge muffins from tin with a knife and transfer to wire cooling rack. Serve with butter and honey.
