Happy Holidays lovely people!
Whilst we are surrounded by cheer and bright lights all around us, we can all get run down and tired from all the shopping and extra preparations at this time of year…so have a go and whipping up my quick walnut and maple syrup muffins. They’re hassle free yet super tasty and gluten-free, no compromise on flavour here guys. What’s more, you’re getting all the sweetness of the maple syrups but none of the processed sugar you may find in other muffins, the walnuts also provide that wonderful crunch and will fuel you up for many hours. All you need is:

Handful of walnuts, chopped up
3 tbps of maple syrup
Pinch of Himalayan salt
1 ½ cups of ground almonds
¼ cup of melted coconut oil and ghee
1 tbsp of ground cinnamon
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp of baking powder
½ tsp of grated nutmeg
1 cup of almond milk

Preheat your oven to gas mark 4 or medium high and simply beat your maple syrup, oil (or ghee if chosen) and eggs until thoroughly beaten. Next, fold In your ground almonds, ground spices, salt, baking powder and alternate with your milk. Fold in until just combined and scoop out your batter into your muffin cases and bake for no longer than 20 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy these muffins guilt free and hassle free!
Happy Baking!
