Little Monster Muffins (flour-free)
|Muffins says: Eat Me!|
I used to love baking cookies - and one of my favorite cookies to make was Monster Cookies... but if you make the original recipe it's loaded with sugar - which is part of the reason why they tasted so dang good. Now I've reduced the sugar and used a sweeter sweetener: honey! And I've got coconut oil instead of butter or margarine. When I first tried this alternative recipe as a cookie - it was a bit crumbly and the bottoms burned. When I tried it as a muffin - it was a success!
