It’s that time of year again, when the days are getting shorter and the flavours are getting warmer. These muffins are so simple and you’ll be dreamy about the fall days, where as you walk down the street you hear the crunch, crunch of the colourful leaves that have fallen under your feet, you’ll be dreaming of cooler nights and comfort food at home. These muffins have lots of warming spices in them, like cinnamon, ginger, and pumpkin pie spice.
These delicious muffins also loaded with hemp hearts, which are one of the only foods in the world that have the ideal ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids. These little gems are great for hormone balancing and give the muffins a nice nutty flavour, not to mention a bit of a protein boost.
To make these babes paleo or grain free,
substitute all of the oat flour for
coconut flour and add an extra egg.
These mini bites are nut free, soy free, dairy free, refined sugar free, and most importantly gluten free. However, they are so delicious you would never know that they are even the tiniest bit healthy!
