7. Sugar-Free Coconut Muffins

These muffins are indeed the AllDelicious healthier version of the regular milky and sugary ones. This time we substituted the sugar with xylitol, the sweetener extracted from trees and other plants, especially from birch. They’re no-flour and dairy-free, too. We went for a coconut theme, so we only used coconut milk and coconut flour. Yummy and healthy.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods, and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it. However, in time I kind of built on this habit and, slowly but surely, I began to turn toward the Mediterranean cuisine and, occasionally, even the Mediterranean diet. I am a curious and inquisitive person. So, pretty soon, I started trying to recreate what I’ve tasted or seen. At first, this proved to be hard work for my better half, as she supervised my new experiments. But lately, the results really started to show, so wish me luck!
