The thing I love about these sugar free pistachio and raspberry muffins, apart from the fact that they are muffins, which of course is a great thing in itself, are the vibrant colours. The bright green pistachios and deep red raspberries give them such an attractive look they are like your normal muffin if it was the main character was in a rom-com and had a makeover montage scene and came out looking all glamorous and what not. Also, they taste good, real good.

So many store bought granola out there are super loaded with added sugars, even the ‘healthy’ ones and can often be pretty pricey too! Well, I say no more to pricey sugar cereal!

Now, don’t get me wrong, Summer is great for food, I’m talking frozen yogurt, enjoying the long summer nights while eating outside, picnics in the park, etc. yeah, yeah, that’s all very well and good.

Yes, I know you can technically have all of those things in Summer too but in Autumn, it just feels so right.

Did you know that many store bought breakfast foods like blueberry muffins, pancake mix and granola actually don’t contain real blueberries?! They are sometimes totally fake ‘blueberries’ or ‘blueberry pieces’ which are made up of sugars, corn syrup and food colouring, some of the brands that do this may shock you – I know it shocked me! It can be disheartening when you are trying hard to eat clean and you find out that the ‘healthy’ breakfast you were eating and instagraming actually isn’t as nutritious as you thought. The appeal of store bought breakfast foods is that they appear healthy and convenient and although some of it totally is, that’s not always the case. Wherever possible, I try to make my own breakfasts for the week in batches so that I know 100% all the ingredients and I can just grab it before work and go.

Man oh man do I love me a muffin in the AM. These are great to make over the weekend since they will keep for 4 or 5 days in an airtight container, weirdly they actually taste fresher as the days go by…sort of like a Benjamin Button of the muffin world, if you will. Totally refined sugar and gluten free, these muffins are substantial but light, making them a perfect for a breakfast addition or a mid morning snack.
