With Trevor and I eating healthier in January, I wanted to find a muffin recipe that didn’t have any processed sugar in it. I’m trying to limit the sugar intake of the kids pot holidays since they had too much! Anyone else?!?
Of course, I found an amazing one by Half Baked Harvest! It uses honey and bananas as the natural sweeteners. And while I used ap flour, you could easily use any other kind of flour in these too. The only thing I changed from her recipe was I used mace instead of all-spice because that’s what I had on hand.
These are absolutely delicious. Make them! you won’t be sorry!
