Sugar Free Banana Coconut Muffins

Andrea Falcone Recipes Leave a Comment

Confession! I kinda get a little perturbed when I see a recipe or food product labeled improperly! The amount of conversations I’ve have with product manufacturers about “sugar free” not really being “sugar free” when there are sources of honey, maple syrup, etc in their product and how it’s misleading to the consumer is endless. And really, there is nothing wrong with putting a little sugar (whichever form) into your baked goodness, BUT I did figure I would produce for all of you something to have on hand if you did want something that had no added sugars in it! I hope this muffin recipe becomes a favourite for you and your families as it has quickly become for us!
