These are wonderful for anyone who is gluten-free and/or anyone who has blood sugar issues. They are also just good for anyone who likes muffins! They are a good source of healthy fats (almond flour, coconut oil), they have fiber to help keep you full (almond flour, banana, berries if you add them), and they are much better for blood sugar control than your traditional muffin. I recommend playing around with the toppings – I’ve been really into blackberry/dark chocolate as well as a peach/dark chocolate combo.
Make these muffins as part of your food prep for the week, and keep them in your fridge so you can grab one an easy breakfast or snack. As I mentioned, I recommend pairing them with a little nut butter and/or Greek yogurt and some fruit for a complete breakfast/snack.
