These muffins are made with coconut flour, a great gluten free alternative. But you don’t need to have an intolerance to enjoy these muffins. Thanks to the Greek yogurt in them, these tangy muffins are light, fluffy, and moist.

Not only are they great tasting, but they’re also great for you! Coconut flour is a good source of fiber, they’re naturally sweetened with coconut sugar, and are kept low calorie and refined oil free by using cashew butter in the place of oil.

Now, you may look at the recipe and think “half a dozen eggs? Do I look like a hen to you?!”. Regardless if you have feathers or not, all those eggs are necessary. Coconut flour needs eggs to help give it rise during baking. If you’re vegan, this unfortunately means you cannot replace them with an egg substitute like a flax egg. I have plenty of other vegan goodies on the blog to make though. Like these Single-Serve Strawberry Crisps . Get baking!

These make a great meal prep option for breakfast or a snack on the go. Pack a couple in your bag with some fruit or hard boiled egg and you’ll be set until lunch. They also freeze well. I like to make a double batch and freeze them for whenever I’m having a busy morning.
