Sugar Free Muffins on a plate

I prefer to bake muffins in mini-muffin trays for bite-size goodies to have with coffee. They are a great size for little kids too. I find the large size available in most cafes these days are way too big - you could feed a whole family with one muffin.

Muffins are fast to make - simply mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and bake in the oven. You don't get easier than that. When using Dextrose in muffins, you will find that the mixture feels a little drier than when cooking with sugar. You will need to spoon it into the muffin trays or cupcake papers rather than pouring it in. Vegetable oil gives a better flavour than butter for many muffins and is easier to use as well.

My banana muffin recipe is a low-sugar way to indulge in your favourite flavour. The banana is King and you can really taste it without the sugar of other recipes.

My Chocolate Muffin recipes give you all my favourite versions of chocolate muffin. Some of them are clever ways to hide vegetables in your kids' diet. They have all been tested on my tame Chocoholics and honestly, the kids don't notice the additions - they get scoffed just as fast as standard chocolate ones.

One of my personal favourites is this Rum and Raisin Muffin recipe. Initially I tried to invent a rum-and-raisin cookie, but the result was too soft and cakey so I reinvented the idea as a muffin. They are awesome! Rum-and-Raisin is my favourite ice cream flavour, I must admit.  These muffins are yummy cool as you normally eat muffins. They are also great warmed up and served like a pudding - with cream, sugar free custard or ice cream.

Raspberry Coconut Muffin Recipe
