Blueberry Walnut Muffins With A Hint Of Lemon & Cinnamon

So let’s get this out of the way. These are - gluten free, refined sugar free, oil Free, low fat to nearly no fat at all - blueberry muffins! These are extremely clean and healthy muffins that won’t disappoint. They come out very mildly sweet since I’ve added no sugar so the sweetening is strictly going off of dates and applesauce for natural sweetness. If you find that you want them sweeter, don’t forget to taste your batter before you pour into your cupcake tins. These are a bit more dense and less fluffy since we're eliminating any additional fats like oils or butter. If you want to, feel free to add some, but I wouldn’t recommend it for a recipe like this. The whole point is to make 100% whole food, plant based muffins for all to enjoy! Now let’s get started.
