1½ C spelt flour

½ tsp sea salt
2 eggs, or 2 tsp soy lecithin as an egg substitute
1 C almond, oat, rice, or soy milk

Preheat oven to 400º F. Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, and then add milk, oil, sweetener of choice and vanilla. Beat well. Gently fold in dry ingredients. Add fruit and stir just enough to moisten, do not over mix.
Fill 12 oiled or paper lined muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Store in lightly closed container for one day, then seal well and keep in refrigerator for 3-4 days. Alternatively, freeze upon cooling and defrost muffins as desired. Enjoy plain or cut in half and spread with a layer of coconut or almond butter.
