 Muffins are definitely a guilty pleasure, but what if we told you that we have a muffin recipe that isn’t only on the healthier side, but is also ridiculously easy to prepare and needs very little cleanup. This recipe is dairy free and it also replaces part of the flour with almond flour, which results in a denser (and healthier) muffin.

They also contain healthy plant oils and nuts, full of the essential omega 3 fats and fiber, dried cranberries, carrots and ginger rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and healthy plant compounds. True, we do use eggs, minimal quantities of whole wheat flour and added sugar in this recipe, which means that you won’t be able to survive on these muffins exclusively ,  but we stand by the belief that it’s still a good idea to stick to healthier alternatives, especially when you’re craving sweets so badly your hand is reaching for cookies as you read this.

As is the case with all of our recipes, this recipe can be prepared in 1 bowl and it’s ready in a blink of an eye (sadly also gone in a blink because they’re so delicious). Finally, here is the recipe:

Cooking time: 30 minutes
Servings: 12

To prepare this recipe, you will need:

Dry Ingredients

½ cup (50 g) almond flour*
2 cups (250 g) whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
