You can also make these muffins with normal wheat flour. I just prefer spelt for a low gluten option.
If you use self-raising flour just add 1 tsp baking powder rather than 5 tsps!
5 tsp sounds like a lot of baking powder but believe me you don’t taste it once muffins are baked.
As a serving suggestion, tomato and a few greens like baby spinach go well.
My husband and I actually ate them this way for dinner... yes muffins for dinner - that was a first and we really enjoyed them warm and crispy!
