These muffins are more healthy than your average muffins. They’re made with brown rice and almond flour. Which offers redeeming whole grain nutrients and extra fiber.

The muffins are also naturally sweetened with agave or maple syrup, which give subtle and sweet syrup flavor to the muffins.

Last but not least, apple sauce instead of vegan butter and it works as a egg substitute too. You can also use mashed banana instead of the apple sauce with apple sauce is not your thing. It will however give the muffins a subtle banana flavour.
