Lots of goodness in a small carry along package! A healthier recipe that is both filling and satisfying and is good for the brain! Flax meal adds brain healthy omega 3 fatty acids and gut friendly whole spelt flour. Spelt flour tends to be better tolerated if you find wheat difficult to digest. Spelt is water soluble too so it keeps the muffins fluffy and the muffins have MCT oils in them too by using coconut oil 😉
Spelt flour is water soluble and makes nice fluffy muffins and is sometimes better tolerated if you have wheat sensitivities.
