I’m always looking to add more whole grains and sourdough into our diets. I think milling soft white wheat for these muffins is just perfect. It has a nice crumb and soft texture and still has the whole grain. I added cottage cheese also for protein since these were a breakfast item.

I love using my freshly milled soft white wheat because it has less gluten. It works well for quick breads like these. I get lots of my grains from my friends at grainworks.   If you don’t have any soft white wheat you can substitute any whole grain flour for it.
