Seeds muffins

Those muffins are made of seeds only. Their main ingredient, which actually holds everything together, is the psyllium husk powder. Those seeds are very good to your health their help with weight lose, help to maintain the proper level of cholesterol... to read more about them look here
The idea to make them came to me when I baked the the life - changing loaf of bread. Although it is said that this bread may be eaten either  with sweet or savoury topping the coconut fragrance make me to think about coconut seed muffins. 

Ingredients for 12 mini + 2 regular size muffins:
  • 60g sunflower seeds
  • 60g desiccated coconut
  • 70g rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp psyllium husk powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 200ml water

Preparing those muffins is extremely easy.
Prepare the mini muffin tin. If the muffin tin holes are not coated with non stick layer then the holes need to be slightly greased. Set aside.
Place the sunflower seeds, coconut, oats, psyllium seed powder, salt, sugar into a big bowl and stir them well. Melt the coconut oil and stir it into the seed mixture. Then stir in the water. Spoon the mixture into prepared earlier muffin tin pressing the seeds into each hole tightly. 
Set aside the muffin tin overnight or for at least 2 hours. This time is needed for psyllium husk the expand and form a gelatin - like mass which will hold all the seeds into shape.

Preheat the oven to 175C. Insert the muffin tin into preheated oven for 10 - 15 minutes and bake until golden. Then remove from oven shake out the muffins onto flat baking tray and bake them for another 15 minutes.
Enjoy :)
