My Dairy Free, Healthy, Blueberry & Raspberry Muffins

Good Morning 🙂

I haven’t posted in a while as I have been on holiday, but since arriving back home I have come up with a few recipes which I wanted to try and share with you.

I have been really craving sweet things in the afternoons at work recently, so instead of buying overpriced, sugar and fat loaded muffins, I wanted to try and create a healthy muffin alternative that my vegan followers can enjoy too. I decided to make Dairy Free, Whole-wheat Raspberry and Blueberry Muffins. These are two of my favourite fruits, which are full of vitamins and are the perfect size for muffins too. This recipe is really easy too so you don’t need to be an experienced baker to try.

This recipe makes 8 muffins, which will last for up to a week in the refrigerator and can be frozen. Low in fat content, my vegan raspberry and blueberry muffins only contain 160 calories, which is around 1/2 of the calories you will find in the popular coffee baristas… including the skinny range! Whole wheat flour provides you with fibre which aids weight loss by keeping you fuller for longer, and Vitamins B1, B3, B5 which provide all round health boosting. Whole wheat flour is also higher in both protein and iron, making this vegan muffin the perfect post/pre workout snack.

Why don’t you try these low fat, dairy muffins for when your craving something sweet?
