If you are looking for some healthy after school treats or a quick grab and go breakfast (or just healthy tasty treats in general! lol) these muffins make the cut!
No Sugar or oils either! A few simple ingredients (some you may even have on hand – like that old banana that you are thinking throwing away!) I added apples in mine but get creative and add whatever fruit you like or have available. Think blueberries, strawberries, pear…..
I also sprinkled a bit of cinnamon on top – yum! If there is a nut allergy in the house swap the almond flour for whole wheat flour or even gluten-free flour. I have not personally tried it that way but I am sure it will be just as delicious! Also, you can make your own almond flour by processing 1 cup of almonds in your food processor (but do so in intervals to avoid making almond butter.) 1 cup of almonds will give you about 1 cup of almond flour.
If you make them please let me know or tag me on IG @cherisemazur.
Happy Healthy Eating!
