Sourdough Blueberry Maple Muffins

sourdough_blueberry_maple_muffin

Using a bit of discard these sourdough blueberry maple muffins are easy to make and great for your digestion!

My husband has been keeping sourdough starter in our house for about nine months. It’s been a fun challenge creating recipes using the starter/discard. Some recipes are a bust; like a chocolate cake I tried to make once that was too heavy on coconut oil. It was so not good.
Most of the time we’ve had pretty successful recipes.

Although sourdough is still a white bread, there are a few reasons we like to bake with sourdough starter/discard.
1. It’s the lowest in sugar content and packed with more minerals than other white breads.
2. There are prebiotic thanks to lactic acid- making it easy for digestion and good for your gut.
3. It’s PACKED with protein! One slice of sourdough bread has more protein an egg. (source)
