Easy SUGAR-FREE Oat & Berry Muffins

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

I’m thinking if you can make sweet yet sugar-free muffins that are healthy enough that they would work for either snack or healthy breakfast, that’s a winner in my book – how ’bout you??

Easy SUGAR-FREE Oatmeal & Berry Muffin recipe, healthy as well as sweet enough that they would work for snack or healthy breakfast. #TexasHomesteader

TAMMY’S NOTE: This No-Sugar challenge documents Ashley’s 30-day attempt to remove PROCESSED SUGAR from their diet.  This challenge allows her to use natural sugars such as fruit, honey or true maple syrup. Therefore it’s not meant for a diabetic alternative, simply a personal-health challenge for her. 

Y’all remember several months ago Ashley was a guest poster who shared her journey of going a full month without any refined sugar in their diet. 

During that challenge she discovered many ways of delighting the palate with sweet treats that didn’t include any refined sugar. (This recipe was included on her Week THREE update so be sure to check it out below)

From Ashley:  I don’t want to take credit for being creative enough to have created these from scratch.  I have researched ways others have made sugar-free desserts and modified different ingredients to my own tastes.  I just cannot pinpoint the exact starting points for these recipes.

This refined sugar free muffin is healthy enough for breakfast, delicious enough for dessert! #TexasHomesteader

    These muffins were super easy to make and obviously healthy. But they weren’t quite sweet enough for us. I’d like to try again and add some stevia, and maybe bump the flavor with some cinnamon too.
