How They're Healthier

I'm sure you're wondering what makes these lemon poppy seed muffins healthier and I'm here to fill you in!

Flour: Most other lemon poppy seed muffin recipes use 100% all-purpose flour. We do what we can to add-in whole grains to our baked goods and this time we swapped out half for white whole wheat!

Oil: Applesauce to the rescue! Instead of using double the amount of oil, we swapped in some applesauce. Pureed fruit is such a great to reduce fat, but keep the moisture content inside your baked goods.

Sugar: While this recipe calls for mostly brown sugar, you can actually swap that for coconut sugar if you want. You'll note that we did reduce the amount of brown sugar, by the addition of honey, which also adds a yummy flavor.
