Carrot & Poppy Seed Muffins

Carrot & Poppy Seed Muffins


This no added sugar recipe has a much lower GI than any normal muffin recipe.  It has added protein, due to the almond meal we add so it is a great way to start your morning.  You can replace the SR flour with gluten free SR flour for those with dietary preferences, and these muffins make a great satisfying snack when the kids get home from school!

  • ½ cup almond meal
