Healthy Cakes : Date and Cinnamon Muffins


I've got a serious sweet tooth but as we all know refined sugar is seriously bad for you. So to indulge my sweet tooth I spent some time in the kitchen experimenting with healthy cakes. What I've found works well is replacing caster sugar with a mix of coconut sugar and agave nectar. And to lower the content of bad fat (ie butter) I used coconut oil. These healthy cakes are light, sweet and tasty but without all the bad stuff. Enjoy! healthy cakes
