11 diners 1h 30m Breakfast Difficulty low Additional features: Cheap cost, Baked recipes Ingredients:
- 150 grams of whole wheat flour
- 150 grams of brown sugar or brown sugar
- 70 grams of olive oil (or 120 g of sunflower oil)
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder (baking powder)
- 1 lemon (zest)
- 3 eggs
Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
Beat the eggs with the sugar until fully integrating these ingredients. Keep in mind that the more airy the dough is, the fluffier the whole-grain muffins will be, so beat vigorously. If you can use electric rods better.
Trick: You can substitute brown sugar for panela or any sweetener you like.
Add the oil and the lemon zest and keep beating at medium speed. For this recipe we will not use the juice, since the zest already provides enough aroma, but in case you want to also add the lemon juice we recommend adding 20 more grams of oil.
Trick: You can also use orange zest, cinnamon powder or vanilla essence to flavor your whole-grain cupcakes.
Sift the flour with the baking powder directly on the dough. Being whole flour, you will have small remains that will not be sieved, incorporate them equally. Mix with the same rods or a spatula.
Trick: You can use another type of whole wheat flour, such as whole spelled flour.
Cover the container with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for 1 hour in the fridge, this will finish settling and the wholemeal cupcakes will be fluffier.
After the resting time, preheat the oven to 180 ºC with heat up and down. While heating, place paper cupcake capsules in a mold designed for these types of buns and fill the molds occupying 3/4 of its capacity.
Trick: If you do not have a silicone or metallic mold, you can use two paper capsules per cupcake to make them more rigid and not deformed.
You can sprinkle brown sugar on top, add dark chocolate chips, chopped nuts, oat flakes or leave them as is. Bake the whole-grain muffins for 20 minutes or until you see that they are ready, since depending on each oven the time may vary.
Trick: Take the stick test to see if they are well made inside. You just have to prick a cupcake with a wooden toothpick and check if it comes out dry.
Let it cool on a rack to prevent the base from getting wet. This is a very effective trick to keep that fluffiness inside.
And ready! You can already enjoy these delicious wholemeal muffins during breakfast or snack. As you can see, there are some fluffy, tender and very good whole-grain muffins. Also, they are much healthier than traditional homemade muffins, so you can consume them more often. Of course, if you follow a diet to lose weight we recommend reducing the amount of sugar or opt for panela, which is much healthier.

Wholemeal Muffins – Calories
The number of calories depends on the ingredients used. For example, if you use brown sugar instead of brown sugar, you will have more calories. Likewise, oil is also an ingredient that adds calories, despite using little. 100 grams of wholemeal muffins like the ones we have prepared contain about 300 calories.
One way to reduce caloric intake and make whole-grain muffins healthier is by using brown sugar and substituting the oil for a plain yogurt without sugar. In this case, we recommend using 2 eggs instead of 3. And if you want to make your wholegrain sugar free muffinsRemember to use plain yogurt, olive oil and add 50-70 more grams of flour.

- Vegan chocolate ganache
- Peanut butter
