Healthy Gluten Free Breakfast Muffins

Ingredients

1 and 1/4 cups (157g) Blends by Orly Sydney Blend
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup (60ml) pure maple syrup
1/4 cup (50g) lightly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup (125g) plain nonfat Greek yogurt
2 Tablespoons (29g) melted coconut oil, slightly cooled
1 egg white, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup (90g) mini dark chocolate chips

Preparation

Heat: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two muffin pans with nonstick cooking spray or fill them with muffin/cupcake liners.

Mix: In a large bowl, mix together the Sydney Blend, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk the maple syrup, brown sugar, yogurt, butter, beaten egg white, and vanilla together until there are no lumps. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until all ingredients are combined and you have a smooth batter. Fold in the mini chocolate chips. Fill muffin cups halfway so that they have room to rise.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. If your oven has hot spots, be sure to rotate the pans during bake time. Remove pans from the oven. Allow muffins to slightly cool before enjoying.

*Muffins stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for 5-7 days. Muffins can be frozen up to 3 months.

Recipe Yields 3 dozen muffins.
