10 Tasty Sugar Free Muffin Recipes

Sugar Free Muffin Recipe

I absolutely love muffins, but did you know an average muffin contains a whopping 37-55g of  sugar depending on the size and flavor of it?

With our daily recommended intake of sugar for women being only 25 g (6 tsp.) and for men 37.5g (9 tsp.) our intake is easily exceed in just one medium blueberry muffin!

So my response to this madness, is to make our own sugar free muffin variations so we can still enjoy in the deliciousness without the sugar overload.

What does that mean? It means swapping a standard muffin recipe that contains heaps of sugar, for a recipe that’s gluten free, dairy free, egg free and contains no refined sugar.

Still same great taste but with half the calories, half the sugar intake and half the negative effects of a standard muffin recipe.

So with this said allow me to introduce to you the 10 best sugar free muffin recipes. Not only are they good for you, but they taste freaking amazing.

Just before you read the recipes, I want to let you know some of the ingredient substitutes you could make in case you’re not comfortable with the ingredients I use:

The Following swaps:

  • SweetMe can be swapped for Erythritol, Granulated Stevia, Isomalt, xylitol, honey, or coconut palm nectar
  • Coconut oil can be swapped for Butter, Olive oil, Apple Sauce, banana and even avocado
  • 1 Flax egg can be swapped for 2 egg whites, 1 whole egg, ¼ cup silken tofu, or 1 banana
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk can be swapped for any milk you desire!
  • Quinoa, buckwheat, coconut and almond flour can all be swapped for standard gluten free flour, self-raising flour etc.
  • Avocado/ Pumpkin can be swapped for banana, applesauce, potato, sweet potato, applesauce, Coconut butter, almond butter, peanut butter or black beans
