This recipe popped up in my reader this morning - Cardamom & Sunflower Muffins from Green Kitchen Stories. I had everything except the cardamom. A quick google search told me that it is food sacrilege to substitue anything for cardamom - but I did. You can feel pretty good about these muffins. The "flour" is ground nuts and seeds and they are sweetened with honey. And like they mention - these muffins are very light. I could eat four or something. A few notes:
-I forgot to toast the sunflowers. I will next time but all went well regardless. -I used my coffee grinder. Chop the walnuts into small bits before grinding. -My cardamom substitution was 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground cloves, 1/2 tsp ground ginger. -They taste bang-up with jam. I'm going to add a slice of cheddar next (trust me!). -I used the four leftover egg yolks to make aioli.
