Lunchbox Muffins

June 16, 2013

I find an important part of making low additive eating easy is being organised. A great way to do that is making just one or a few snacks at home and putting them in the freezer.

So, here is a very forgiving recipe for you to try out! It is based on a Failsafe recipe called “Margie’s Lunchbox Pear Muffins”.  I make a sweet and savoury version at the same time so I have two bowls on the go at once! I’m a fan of making a double batch of both and freezing them.

Now the SWEET version of the recipe does have sugar – so I know it won’t suit everyone!  In which case I’ve also put in a link below for Tania Hubbard’s coconut flour, date & cinnamon muffins as well – because they are delicious!
