Muffins are a fantastic food for snacks, parties, or breakfast on the run. They're easy to make, and can be frozen and taken out as required. They can be very healthy but be cautious of muffins that you buy at bakeries, cafes and supermarkets, which are often heavily sweetened with enough sugar to outweigh any other potential benefits of a muffin. These gluten free muffins contain no added sugar - just the natural fruit sugars, and are a good source of protein, fibre, healthy fats, and essential nutrients including potassium, iron, vitamin C and vitamin B6.

The finished product


Simple. Delicious. Nutritious.

Tips
The fruits provide enough sweetness for me but if you absolutely need more, add a tablespoon of honey or agave syrup.
Over-mixing your batter can make your muffins dry and tough.
Don't fill your muffin cases more than two thirds or they won't rise well.
Adding some chopped walnuts, or nuts of your choice adds a great textural and nutritional element.
If I'm home, one of my favourite ways of eating a muffin is to cut it in half and lightly fry in a little ghee until crispy and golden.
