These aren’t just any old muffins! I’ve done a few things to bump up the nutritional value to set them apart from other muffin recipes. Here’s what makes these muffins better for your health and for your waistline:
I used cooked quinoa! This increases the muffin’s protein power and adds complex carbs to keep you energized and full.
I took out the refined flours and used almond flour. This also increases the protein of each muffin and adds complex carbs. It also makes these muffins 100% gluten free!
I used a small amount of wholesome sweeteners – ZERO refined sugars! This is super important when it comes to avoiding weight gain and sustaining your super power energy levels.
I used a full cup of shredded zucchini. This is excellent fiber!
I used mini chocolate chips sweetened with stevia rather than refined sugar. This means that the total sugar count for each muffin is tiny, while the enjoyment factor is through the roof!
I used mini muffin tins. This is one of the BEST ways to control portion sizes! So you get to enjoy a delicious morsel without taking in too many calories.
