These 5-ingredient muffins are my favourite go-to as they are not only delicious and moist but they are fluffy, gluten-free and naturally sweetened with banana and maple syrup making these a healthy treat!

As a busy bee, like many of you out there, I wanted to create a recipe with minimal ingredients that only takes 5-10 minutes to make. These muffins freeze very well so double my recipe below to make a larger batch so you always have some on hand.

Remember it is key to make simple healthy treats, like these muffins, that will stay fresh in your bag or desk drawer for easy, hassle-free snacking.

 

Enjoy! x

There is something about warm baked apples topped with crunchy crumble that makes me drool.  It is one of my favourite winter desserts and when you see how simple it is to make it will quickly become yours too! I also love apple crumble because it is made with simple ingredients that you likely have in your kitchen.

I have taken the classic apple crumble recipe and swapped out the ‘not so healthy’ ingredients for more natural options.

By using brown rice flour in place of all purpose white flour, this winter dessert is gluten-free. I have substituted coconut oil for butter and naturally sweetened the dessert with maple syrup and coconut sugar.

Enjoy this warm, comforting and incredibly delicious Winter dessert! Serve with Coco whip for an extra treat!
