Spent Grain Muffins

Yes, it's another spent grain recipe.
When ya got 'em, ya gotta use 'em, right?

These muffins were hearty, had tons of texture, and I really liked the flavor; they weren't too sweet.

Like the granola, I didn't dry these grains first; I just drained them.

If you find yourself with two tons of spent grains, give these a try.

Spent Grain Muffins

1 1/4c. Buttermilk
1 1/4c. Spent Grains, well drained

In a glass bowl, soak the grains in the buttermilk overnight on the counter.  Put a tea towel over the top of the bowl.

The next morning, preheat the oven to 400F.
Spray muffin pan with non-stick spray or use cupcake liners.

Add to the soaked grains:

1 1/4c. Flour
1 1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt
3/4c. Brown Sugar
1/4c. Butter, cubed
1 Egg

Mix until combined then add:

3 Tbs. Flax Seeds
1/2c. Dried Fruit, use whatever kind you like as long as the pieces are small

Mix well.

Bake at 400F for 15 minutes.
