This recipe is perfect for those times when you fancy a healthier treat, but you don’t have the time to think or shop for fancy ingredients! Raisins, our humble friends, sitting quietly in the cupboard are here to save the day, adding extra sweetness and juiciness to your lucuma and coconut muffins. And what’s more raisins are an effective prebiotic feeding the good bacteria in your gut, whilst the coconut flour and flakes provide you with fibre and beneficial fats for metabolism support. Simple, yet super scrumptious and tummy loving!
