Another sugar-free, butter-free, healthy bake! Made this for a friend who wasn’t feeling very well a while ago. A great breakfast muffin or guilt-free snack on the go! I love the citrusy scent from the orange, and the natural sweetness from the orange juice and honey. My kids loved them, and so did I. Perhaps the next batch I will try to make it with oat flour! If you are like me who is quite particular about how my kids eat, especially when it comes to junk food and sugary treats, then this is one recipe that you should try.
