I’ve made a lot of muffin recipes over the around four years that I’ve been baking, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is probably the best one I’ve ever made.
I found the recipe from Ambitious Kitchen, but I altered it quite a bit. I love bread, and I love zucchini bread. And blueberry muffins. And chocolate chip cookies. And, well you get the idea. And these muffins are like zucchini bread, blueberry muffins, and chocolate chip cookies all rolled into one healthy, low calorie, vegan, and sugar free muffin. Oh and did I mention that its made with low gluten einkorn flour? I might have had four muffins the second time I made them🤫.
So not only is it amazing for your taste buds, but your body will also thank you for the nutrients and protein in it. These can be made vegan or with a couple eggs and honey for some extra protein. I’ll put both ways to make it in the recipe. I hope you enjoy!

- One full squirt of hazelnut stevia ( it enhances the sweetness of the maple syrup/honey)
