Paula Deen's Apple Raisin Muffins - Adapted into 4 Mini Bread Loaves With added Nutrition - by Karen

So, a friend of mine suggested this recipe, and since we just picked apples straight from the tree, I decided to give it a go.  I used 2 large Gravenstein apples, switched things up by adding half craisins half golden raisins, added toasted almonds instead of walnuts, swapped out all purpose flour for half white whole wheat and half sprouted whole wheat flour, then finally, added a tablespoon each of chia seeds and hemp seed hearts, just for added nutrients.

The original recipe is HERE

I started by bringing the first set of ingredients to a boil.  Then I took it off the stove and let it cool.  This was 1 cup water, 2 cups sugar, 2 cups grated Gravenstein apples, 2 sticks of butter (2 cups), 1 cup golden raisins, 1 cup craisins, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1tsp. fresh grated nutmeg, and 1 tsp. ground cloves.

While I let this mixture cool, I warmed the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit, and toasted one cup of raw almonds for 4 minutes (just until you can smell almonds).  I cooled the almonds, chopped them coarsely, and placed them in a large bowl.  To that bowl I added 1 Tbsp. chia seeds, 1 Tbsp. raw hemp hearts, 1.75 cups white whole wheat flour, 1.75 cups sprouted whole wheat flour, and 2 tsp. baking soda.

With a wooden spoon, I simply mixed the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients which had cooled.  I evenly divided it into my 4 loaf pan, and baked it for 55 minutes at 350 degrees.

The unique ingredients I added can be investigated by clicking on their text below:
