TRAINING SUCCESSFUL PRACTITIONERS

Simple Paleo Chocolate Muffins

paleo-muffins

Ever since I cut out wheat and gluten from my diet, baking for others and special occasions has been challenging to say the least and some results have been outright disastrous. I’m sure anyone who has tried to bake without the traditional cake ingredients you will know what I’m talking about! That’s why, when I put this recipe together and found it really worked, I knew I needed to look no further. It contains no gluten, grains or refined sugars, my kids love them, and if you add a chocolate and creamed coconut icing, they become the perfect birthday cake replacements.
