Lemon strawberry muffins – glutenfree and sugar free
I am not necessarily all about eating glutenfree or sugarfree and especially not when it comes to baking. On the contrary; I think – to be honest – that sugar is just very delicious. But I know a lot of people eat sugar free and don’t use any grains and I like a good challenge.On top of that I am doing the I quit sugar challenge myself right now so the perfect time to experiment with these muffins. I do use honey which is officially not allowed on the IQS program. I am just saying…
The result? It’s a good muffin. I used my favorite muffin recipe and replaced some of the ingredients with other things. It’s a good breakfast muffin that is far less sweet than you are maybe used to. It a tiny bit dryer than would I would like, but the topping with the greek yoghurt and the lemonhoney and vanille gives it just that bit extra that it needs. The topping is more acidic than your average buttercream but better for the hips too! 😉
You can easily make different varieties for these muffins by adding blueberries in it or raspberries. The lemon flavor could be a little more pronounced for my taste. So more lemon zest for the next time. I already added extra to it in the recipe below.
