Brown rice muffins are a nice change from the ordinary and are great with added fruits and berries of your choice.

1 cup cold cooked short grain brown rice (see below)

1 cup sifted flour (whole wheat, you can also experiment using

alternate flour choices: Bob's Red Mill has a great

substitution chart located on the website)

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. sea salt

2 tbsp. honey

1 cup milk (cow’s, almond, soy, or rice)

2 eggs beaten

4 tbsp. melted butter

Add ½ cup of berries or chopped apple and 1 tsp cinnamon

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt

Combine milk, eggs, butter, honey and rice.

Quickly combine the dry and wet mixtures. DO NOT OVER BEAT, as this will make heavy muffins.

Pour into 12 buttered muffin tins.

Bake in a 425 oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Makes 12 muffins.
