recipe time!

in my continued quest to live, look and feel great, i find ways to create recipes that are friendly for a fit and low grain/low-sugar life style. one of my favorite morning treats are muffins. they are just scrumptious when most on the inside with a hint of toasted texture on top. this delicious recipe contains only almond & coconut flour, natural occurring sugars and healthy fats to make it a delightful and super healthy treat. the autumn flavors prepare us for the close of summer. enjoy! 

kabocha muffins

3/4 cup almond flour
