Morning Glory Muffins

Ok, not to brag, but I think I nailed this refined sugar-free morning glory muffin recipe! That’s why I just had to get this recipe out to you ASAP! These muffins are light, soft, satisfying, and full of all of the best tropical flavors to transport our tastebuds and mind to a tropical island during work. Plus, they are full of warm cozy spices that remind you of fall. Is fall anyone else’s favorite season?

Although I am a big fan of all of the NOW Real Food® sweeteners, the monk fruit sweeteners are by far my favorite. I have been using them for as long as I can remember. I love them because they are calorie-free, have no icky after taste, can be used in literally anything (hello yogurt bowls, oatmeal, coffee, smoothies, muffins, cheesecake, bagels, etc.) There is no limit to how and where you can use these. 

My favorite coffee shop hack is taking one of these with me in my purse and saving money on those expensive coffee syrups. The bottle is just 1 oz, so it travels nicely! Plus, the flavor options are endless! I used the vanilla monk fruit on this recipe, but we also have quite a few with the pumpkin spice on the site. Oh, let’s not forget the chocolate (makes a mean mocha coffee), and their new caramel flavor is unreal! For my friends who aren’t into flavors, they also have unflavored as well. 

All of the flavors are organic, zero calories, vegan, keto-friendly, gluten-free, etc. They literally work for any diet lifestyle. Now, do you see why I love them so much?

Ok, back to the muffins! 😂 I paired the muffins with a little (you guessed it) vanilla monk fruit-sweetened cottage cheese and fresh cherries to make a full meal. But, feel free to serve the muffins alone, enjoy them as a snack, or even dessert. They are great for meal prep, the beach, travel, daycare for the kids (just make sure the nuts are extra small or left out), and a grab ‘n go snack for a muffin and coffee date with your girlfriends. 

I think we can all agree that muffins are extra easy, extra convenient, and extra, extra delicious! So, grab your vanilla monk fruit, head to the kitchen, and start enjoying these muffins! I promise you won’t regret it! 

 

P.S- these also freeze really well!
