Gluten-Free Orange Yogurt Muffins – a delightful fragrant muffin with a tart, refreshing taste of orange. These gluten-free muffins make perfect everyday snacks.

What is in this healthy orange yogurt muffin?

The muffin recipe has only two flours. Almond flour and sweet sorghum, both flours are a powerhouse of nutrition, protein and fiber. To keep the muffin moist, I added olive oil and yogurt. So this is an olive oil muffin, there is no added butter. For the flavour and additional sweetness, I added fresh orange juice and orange zest. These two ingredients are what makes these muffins so tasty. And of course, a little vanilla never hurts. For sweetness, I used pure maple syrup, so no refined sugar in this recipe. To make the muffin extra light, I added eggs.

The recipe itself is super easy ๐Ÿ™‚ These nutritious and tasty muffins freeze beautifully, making them perfect for a large batch. So why not enjoy them fresh and freeze the rest to warm for a quick midday snack.

One of the things that I love about this gluten-free orange yogurt – the muffin is packed with protein. This means it will keep your hunger at bay and energized for hours. They are great just after a workout or midday when you lack energy. Honestly….the muffins are perfect for any time of the day ๐Ÿ™‚
