Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Preheat oven to 400°. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, wheat germ, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips.
In a large bowl combine remaining muffin ingredients. Beat with an electric mixer until well combined. Add dry ingredients and mix to just combine. Divide batter between 12 lined muffin cups.
Place streusel ingredients into a small food processor and process until crumbly. You can combine these ingredients using your fingers if you do not have a processor.
Spoon the streusel topping over muffins. Bake for 20 minutes or until muffins test done. Remove to a rack to cool.
