Whole Wheat Honey Muffins

I hope that you all had a very happy new year! Mine was filled with lots of friends and of course staying up to see the ball drop! I know that many of your new years resolutions are to try to eat less sweets and focus more on eating healthy, so here are these muffins. These have no butter, no processed sugar, and are great with a smear of peanut (or almond) butter.

These muffins are more bread-like than your typical muffin and aren’t as painfully sweet as most muffins tend to be. These certainly taste like a “healthy” muffin, but I don’t always consider that a bad thing. These have a subtle flavor of cinnamon, but these muffins are pretty basic- they loan themselves to have lots of bold flavors added to them. Try out these muffins and switch it up from your usual slices of whole wheat toast, and I assure you that your new year will have a sweet start! šŸ™‚
