While I try not to consume too much added sugar, sometimes it is fun to have a little treat. I made these for a friends birthday and while they are still generally healthy, they do contain coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is really just sugar, but it is supposed to have a lower glycemic index than refined sugar; it looks and tastes like brown sugar though and it doesn't make food super sweet as refined does. I was very pleased with these muffins and I think they would make a great treat for kids, or a grab and go breakfast! While all of my recipes are gluten-free, you can still usually replace my gluten-free items/ingredients with whole-wheat flour, etc. Make note: If you DO want them to be gluten-free, make sure you purchase gluten-free oats/gluten-free oat flour.

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
