Recipe: Kefir-Soaked Muffins

Soaking the flour in kefir gives it a bit of tang, breaks down the fiber present in the grain, and even lends a bit of lift due to the naturally present yeasts in kefir.

Use the simple base recipe to create a multitude of variations. Add fresh or dried fruit, tossed in flour so they don’t sink, and gently mix into the batter. Or add nuts or chocolate chips for something special.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups whole-grain flour
  • 2 cups milk kefir
  • 2/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 4 Tbsp. melted butter

Instructions:

  1. The night before baking the muffins, combine the flour and kefir in a large bowl. Cover and let rest at room temperature for 12-24 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  3. Mix all other ingredients into flour-kefir mixture. Mix just until combined.
  4. Spoon batter into muffin cups that have been buttered or lined with paper liners.
  5. Place in preheated oven and bake 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife comes out clean when inserted into center of a muffin.
