The last several years we have had an amazing crop of plums! We only have a couple trees but they have been very plentiful. We’ve eaten them fresh, frozen them and dehydrated them. As we have experimented on how to use them up we discovered that they taste fantastic in muffins! They bring extra fiber and a different flavor that is really fun. You are going to love them!
Muffins make great grab and go snacks or quick and healthy breakfasts. We always feel better when we have them on hand! Have a couple with an Easy Peasy Green Smoothie or some Easy Peasy Green Juice and you have a nutrient filled breakfast.
½ cup prunes
water, enough to cover
¼ cup coconut oil
½ cup buttermilk
½ cup honey
1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. real salt (make sure it’s real salt not table salt or it will be too salty)
½ cup chopped nuts
Place prunes in a small saucepan and cover with water. Cook on medium-low heat until the prunes soften. Let cool. By this point most of the water should be boiled out. If it isn’t pour it off. In a food processor combine cooled prunes, coconut oil, buttermilk, egg and honey. Process until the prunes are finely chopped. Add dry ingredients and nuts and pulse just until combined. Don’t over mix. Scoop into paper lined muffin tins (with an ice cream scoop for easier cleanup). Bake at 375º for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Makes 12 muffins.
