Most muffins are just a step away from cake with lots of added sugar. Not these Med Muffins! These muffins have no added sugar and super healthy fats from nuts. This is a great muffin recipe that can be made gluten-free if needed by using gluten-free oats. I make these muffins almost every week to take in my lunch. It is a great way to get more nuts in your diet. Just a few ingredients and you have a delicious snack or breakfast. If you use almonds, sliced almonds work best. If you want the muffins to be more like a traditional muffin, you can process half of the oats in a food processor to make oat flour. Use muffin papers and spray them with non-stick spray for the best product. You can experiment using pears in the place of apples and vary the type of nuts.
