Good Morning! Muffins

The whole point of these muffins is to get away from commercial breakfast bars, huge sugary store-bought muffins and all that processed crap. I've been working on Karen's 8-Grain Cranberry Muffins, refining, adding this and that. This muffin is less crumbly and has more whole grain goodness - I've made changes to flours, sugar, and oil. I do like this version - a lot!

2 TB ground flax seed mixed with 3 TB water, mix & let sit
3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1/4 cup spelt flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup agave syrup
1/4 cup walnut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup Bob's Red Mill 8 Grain Cereal
1-1/4 cup soy milk
2 tsp of vinegar
1/3 cup dried Craisins, chopped

Add vinegar to milk and let sit a bit and then add cereal to milk mixture. Let sit for 30-45 minutes.

Mix dry ingredients in small bowl, mix and set aside.

Add, oil, vanilla, and sugar to milk mixture. Add flax seed mixture. Mix. Add the dry ingredients till just blended and add cranberries.

Bake in 375 degree oven for 15-25 until lightly browned. Keep an eye on the muffins; they seem to brown more with the agave syrup.
