In trying to be successful at “sugar-free”, you may have found that what helps the most are fabulous “go-to” recipes that fit your lifestyle and are perfect for all occasions. Keeping up a healthy diet needs reinforcement, no matter how long you’ve been practicing sugar-free alternatives. These healthy and simple muffins are a great treat to add to your rotation.
If you’re beginning to incorporate sugar-free foods into your diet, transitioning into heartier, healthier foods like these muffins can help. These are packed with staple ingredients like applesauce and bananas to help sweetened without adding a lot of other sweeteners to the recipe. Hearty oats and wheat flour keep this recipe nice and filling. Half the battle with staying sugar-free is making sure you don’t go hungry. These muffins will surely help with that!
We love the taste and texture of these nutrient packed muffins. They make the perfect snack muffin or “grab and go” muffin. Be sure to top them with coconut oil, jams, raw honey or a little extra sprinkle of cinnamon when you’re home to enjoy them. Kid-approved and delicious as can be!
