My walnut muffins have walnuts incorporated three different ways. Great if you have too many lying around that need to be used.
Here's a recipe to get your week started.
With an abundance of walnuts leftover in my pantry it was only natural that I would put them to use on the blog.
It had been ages since I had produced some kind of muffin recipe so here is todays creation.
Triple walnut muffins.
In case you're curious they're "triple" because they have a combination of walnut meal, roughly chopped walnuts and a walnut crumble!
Three times the walnut flavour!
I'm still going through my spelt flour "phase" and these triple walnut muffins contain a combination of white and wholemeal spelt flour, olive oil, yoghurt and a myriad of warm spices.
Autumn is sort of here so these are my celebratory treat!
Enjoy them with a glass of milk, a "cuppa" or just on their own (smeared with butter of course!).
Enjoy your week and I'll see you soon.
