Mum’s Magic Muffins

My mum loves muffins. She knows exactly what she likes and is often disappointed by many recipes leaving her not satisfied. I designed this EPIC muffin recipe for my mum. They are filling, delicious and pack an awesome amount of healthy fats and protein. The recipe uses Xylitol which has no impact on your blood sugar. Try making a batch of these muffins and storing them for a simple on the go breakfast.
