Healthy Dessert Ingredients

Oat Flour: I think that oat flour is the best flour for baking healthy muffins. It mixes very well, gives you the fluffy bakery texture you know & love, and there is gluten free oat flour that is perfect for those with food allergies

Honey & Maple Syrup: I like to use honey and maple syrup in place of sugar when baking healthier treats

Spices: We use a lot of spices in our healthy baked goods to add flavor. Cinnamon, ground ginger and nutmeg are always in our pantry

Baking powder & baking soda: help your muffins and other baked goods puff up.
