Coconut oil and coconut palm sugar blueberry muffins
They are dairy free!
Now let’s start with blueberries...... often referred to as a superfood, brain food etc. These little gems are pretty much the kings of antioxidants. Blueberries are believed to contain the highest antioxidant capacity of ALL commonly consumed fruits and vegetables.
The antioxidants in blueberries seem to have benefits for the brain, helping to improve brain function and delaying age-related decline. Other studies have shown that blueberries have anti-diabetic effects, helping to improve insulin sensitivity and lower blood sugar levels.
So when it comes to blueberries feel free to over indulge, have them daily if you can add them in your juices, smoothies or like now in your morning muffins!
Coconut palm sugar.......
Fit Soul Kithen are proudly in partnership with Mother Nature who provide the best organic coconut palm sugar, which is healthier sugar alternative.
Coconut sugar over refined white table sugar is that it’s natural and not refined. That means coconut sugar retains its vitamins and minerals, which include vitamins C, B1 B2, B3, and B6, as well as calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. Coconut sugar also contains much less fructose (3 to 9 percent) than does white table sugar (50 percent), which is an advantage if you want to keep your fructose intake low.
