These are not your normal morning muffin. Time to step outside the box, and try something different. These muffins are sweetened with fruit flavors, and filled with so many healthy benefits. If you love your muffins super sweet, just top your muffin with your favorite jam or jelly. They are a perfect start to your day, Orange Almond Morning Muffins!
With my diet restrictions, it has been fun exploring new ways to bake, or cook. These muffins exclude any sugar, and use the sweetness naturally from oranges and bananas. The orange almond muffins are filled with protein from the garbanzo bean and almond meal flour, AND they still look fluffy and hearty!
Just like any recipe here at the cafe, you can easily alter the recipe. Instead of the half cup of banana, you could use sugar. Also, instead of garbanzo bean flour, you could use your all purpose flour. Now personally I would not change a thing, they are that delicious!
