We are back for a new year and again this January, I’m sharing only recipes with no refined sugar.

No refined sugar? None of the recipes include white sugar, brown sugar or powdered sugar. Instead, they are sweetened with honey, maple syrup, or coconut palm sugar.  Plus, any chocolate is dark.

What Ingredients are Needed?

  • Whole wheat or white whole wheat flour
  • White flour + Baking powder + Salt
  • Honey
  • Milk

Flour: I tried making these with more wheat flour than white. In my opinion, they were too “wheaty” and were more of the consistency of a corn muffin. So, I made them again and used the ingredients listed below. They were much softer and more like a regular muffin.

With that said, please feel free to add/subtract the amount of wheat and white flour that you wish to use. Just be sure to stick with the same total measurements as listed in the recipe card.

A few more recipe notes:

  • Milk: Regular dairy milk or almond milk will work with this recipe.
  • No need to use your big electric mixer for these. Two good mixing bowls, a whisk and wooden spoon for mixing will do the job.
  • Be sure not to over mix your batter. Simply stir the dry ingredients until no wet spots remain. This gives your muffins a softer texture.
  • These muffins freeze well. Let the muffins cool completely, then, place in a freezer safe container with a lid or plastic storage bag. When ready to eat, simply heat up in the microwave or oven. They will stay good for several months.
