So today on the "semi-live" I went all in with these muffins and my word are they delicious! I made them gluten-free, lactose-free and sugar-free, I personally don't mind the sugar but I know a lot of you who follow me aren't fans of it, so I stayed away for this recipe and it still tastes divine!
What I love about making these healthy treats is the fact that everyone can eat them, and for those of you who are watching your weight, these simple and clean recipes will not leave you with that guilty feeling at all. The last thing we want is to feel angry at ourselves after we eat something and low-key resent ourselves for "stepping out of line".
I won't do much talking today but rather let the images do the talking because they really do taste as good as they look. Hope you are all enjoying my "semi-lives" and hopefully soon I'll be doing actual lives to get your questions and feedback!
Have a good week and happy baking!
