Our Maple Blackberry Muffins have no oil or eggs but still provide plenty of protein and fiber for your kids to start their morning right.
Pure, organic maple syrup is an excellent natural sweetener. It provides a rich flavor, too.
Blackberries are rich in fiber, Vitamins A, C, and K, as well as antioxidants.
You can make these muffins in advance and pop them into a little hand on one of those busy mornings. You can substitute other fruits for the blackberries as they come into season.
As always, we recommend using in-season and organic ingredients.

Sounds delicious and easy. Can you substitute the flour for a gluten free flour? If so, which one would be best? Thank you in advance.
