Gluten free Coconut Muffins

Gluten free muffins photoWhen you crave something sweet it is important to not be tempted to go straight for that sugary hit. But when you have planned in advance and want to have something delicious to serve to your guests this is the perfect treat.

Gluten free muffins can be delicious

 

These coconut gluten free muffins naturally contain no gluten, sugar, flour or yeast and best of all taste amazing. They have no synthetic sugars or commercial gluten free flours that tend to have an ingredient list longer then an essay. When baking gluten free, keep it simple and don’t get sucked in to the gluten free craze and buy processed products that are by no means healthy.
