Morning Glory Muffins (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/ Refined Sugar free)

I can not seem to keep these muffins in my house very long. I guess that is a compliment to the chef.
One of my friends tried them and said that each mouthful was tantalizing. She told me that she savored every bite, tasting all the different flavours. I said that when I finish my cook book she can write my recipe reviews.

Morning Glory Muffins

One thing I can say is that I have never tasted a better morning glory muffin.
I hope that you agree… Let me know.

  1. Hi Sandi,
    I’d love to try this, but I need to avoid flax. Can it be substituted with something else in this recipe?

      • Thanks so much for the speedy reply! I have so many foods to avoid, it gets overwhelming. I have only just discovered your recipes- I’ve made the 5 min choc cake a few times now, and it was so good even my husband and mom (who don’t have food allergies) both loved it. I love that your recipes aren’t complicated and don’t require hard to find ingredients. I can’t wait to try more recipes! Thanks for what you’re doing!
