I love a good muffin- they’re the perfect little sweet, but sorta-healthy snack or quick one-handed breakfast (we like to serve them with a little something on the side, like eggs or a smoothie- but sometimes, you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do, mama!). I also love finding nutrient dense alternatives to regular old’ white flour, like almond flour and coconut flour– or even meat! (just kidding, but these are really good– for dinner!). My latest obsession? Cassava flour!

It’s naturally gluten-free, grain-free and delicious- it has a similar texture to regular flour, a little more chewy- but firm and it’s also a little more fiber-rich than regular flour (it’s made from the Yuca root) which makes it a great filling option.

I’ve been working on perfecting my basic recipe- so you can experiment and make your own favorite combo! Scroll down for three of my favorites!
