Strawberry Breakfast Muffins//gluten-free, low-sugar, high protein, (Vegan option)

Starting spring off right with freshly picked local, strawberries. These beauties taste so much better than store-bought! But if store-bought is all you have access to, I promise these healthy tasty treats won’t disappoint.

RECIPE:

2 cups almond flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp himalayan sea salt

4 TBSP butter, melted (coconut oil for VEGAN)

shy 1/4 cup honey (local is best) [coconut sugar for VEGAN]

3 TBSP sweetener of choice (added for stability/can use Truvia, Pyure, any baking blend sweetener OR sugar)

2 tsp Vanilla extract

1 cup chopped strawberries

4 eggs (or flax eggs=4 TBSP flax seed ground + 8 TBSP warm water set in bowl, mixed and let sit until it gels for VEGAN)

1/4 cup water

1/4-1/2 cup coconut sugar (for sprinkling)

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Line a mini muffin pan, or regular-sized mufin pan with muffin liners. Chop, and wash strawberries in small 1/8″ cubes. In a mixer bowl add butter (or coconut oil), water, eggs (or flax eggs), honey (or coconut sugar), and Vanilla. Blend until incorporated well, about 1-2 minutes. Add almond flour first, then baking powder, and salt. Slowly stir together and add strawberries before completely incorporated. Use a cookie scooper to pour batter into mini muffin tins, or larger spoon to pour mixture into large muffin cups. Sprinkle each muffin with a little coconut sugar.

BAKE the minis for 13-15 min. And larger ones for 18-20 min or until no longer jiggly when you gently shake the pan. Let cool in pan for 5-10 min and then invert on to cooling rack. Enjoy with your favorite hot or iced beverage! Store in fridge for up to 4 days or freezer for up to 1 month.

Lover of life, my husband Chad, and our three kids. I love cooking and baking low-sugar, but still delicious, foods for my Chad who’s a diabetic. We leave room for occasional indulgent foods too! Constantly on the hunt for natural, alternative ways to incorporate to stay healthy. Saved by grace. Lastly adventure and spontaneity are everything...oh, and coffee too.
