As the weather cools, I finally feel like baking again!! For years we have made large batches of muffins for the freezer because I don't fix breakfast anymore. Since I am following the Trim Healthy Mama.(affiliate link) eating plan I have been converting family favorites to be sugar free. Everyone IS SUPER glad that this Sugar Free Spice Muffin recipe is just as good as the original.

Why sugar free recipes keep me feeling good!

When I focus on good fats, protein and low glycemic carbs I feel so good!  I don't get that sugar spike and crash any more.  Plus I definitely have to keep my reputation with the kids as chief of the sugar police here.  Not really but we do try to limit how much sugar we eat.

But a girl needs a really good muffin with crunchy sweetness on top occasionally.  Now I love chocolate Muffins in a Mug (I use xyitol in this recipe) or this Chocolate chip version but there is something about these Spice Muffins that get me ready for fall and the cooler weather. 

Healthy doesn't mean it tastes bad

There are tons of benefits from using sprouted grains in your baking.  My favorite is that the carbs are reduced and that means I can have toast and sandwiches without spiking my blood sugar.  I like to pair these muffins with an egg white omelette, turkey sausage or on-plan yogurt to get the protein to help balance out the carbs in the Spice muffins. 

Trim Healthy Mama's:  these muffins are low enough in fat that you can add a small amount of butter(1 tsp) and stay in the E range. 

Mmmmm butter plus cinnamon in a sweet muffin?  Perfect breakfast for me!

Yes my stone is broken but thankfully it still works in two pieces!!!
