Healthy Gluten-Free Sugar-Free Flax Muffin With Raisins everyone will love. The sweetness in these tasty muffins comes from ripe bananas, freshly grated apples and raisins. The flax adds plenty of fiber, and the almond flour and eggs add protein. For added fats, I used a splash of extra virgin olive oil, making this a dairy-free muffin. This recipe is perfect for when you have over-ripe bananas or extra apples sitting in your fridge. A gluten-free, sugar-free flax muffin I consider super healthy! 

You asked, where do I get my recipe ideas?

I often receive emails from you asking where do I get my recipe ideas. An excellent question! In January, I focus on super healthy recipes. After the holidays of indulging in rich, delicious meals and desserts, starting the New Year with healthy food is essential. When I focus on healthy eating, it is all about cutting back on sweeteners, fats, carbs and calories. Sometimes I add a hearty, comforting meal to mix things up a bit like when I did the Instant Pot Spaghetti Bolognese. But overall, it is all about delicious and healthy 🙂 Other times, I look in my fridge and see what I have the most of. For example, this sugar-free muffin. I had too many bananas that were ripening too fast, and my fridge was packed with organic apples. Bananas and apples are a perfect combination for a muffin recipe because you don’t have to add a sweetener. Adding raisins to the mix made the muffin even sweeter and tastier. But mostly I focus on produce that is in season and start there. I also research the latest trends and health tips and try to incorporate those in my recipes. But, it is my family that inspires me the most, because they come up with fresh ideas and foods that they love. So I combine their ideas with my personal touch, and that is how it happens. I hope you enjoy my recipes, and please email me with recipe ideas or foods you would like to see. I am always happy to hear from you.
