Healthy gluten-free muffin packed with bananas, pumpkin seeds, apples, raisins, carrots and chia. This muffin recipe has no added sugar, fat or dairy, making this a healthy allergy-friendly recipe. For extra flavour, I added a splash of fresh lemon juice and pure vanilla extract. The mouthwatering muffin is moist with plenty of texture. I especially love the crunchiness of pumpkin seeds. What I love about this gluten-free muffin is that for sweeteness, I used only fruit, so keeping this muffin extra healthy. There is no added fat, which also cuts back on the calories.
Why not start your day with something that not only tastes delicious but is packed with healthy nutrients. This healthy gluten-free muffin will keep you full and energized for hours, and this is why I named this recipe a morning glory muffin.
