Lil' Joes Wheat Berry Muffins

These are a family favorite of ours and hopefully they'll become your family's favorite too!


3 c coarsely ground Joseph's Grainery Hard Red Wheatberries
1 c boiling water
1/2 c oil
1/2 c honey (or 1 c sugar)
2 eggs, beaten
2 c buttermilk
2 1/2 c flour (extra credit if you use flour ground from your Joseph's Grainery Wheat)
2 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 c craisins, chopped
1 c walnuts, chopped

Directions:  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grind wheatberries to the consistency of cornmeal (A blender works well for grinding wheatberries, try grinding just 1/2 cup at a time - we used our small cuisinart food processor and that worked well too).  Pour boiling water over the wheatberries and let sit awhile to soften them.

Blend honey (or 1 c sugar), oil, eggs and buttermilk, then add softened wheatberries. Add dry ingredients. Fold in craisins and walnuts.

Drop spoonfuls into greased or paper-lined muffin tins.  Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Makes 2 dozen.

You can also make these with Soft White Wheat Berries
