Hello there!

This weekend I wanted to start thinking about Christmas and festive recipes, meaning I wanted to put edible golden glitters everywhere. By the way, I found an always on countdown until Christmas, which is both super exciting and a bit creepy. There are only 32 nights until Christmas guys. It’s happening here.

So today I give you the healthy and simple recipe of almond and coconut muffins. They are vegan and fat free. I made them with apple and apricot compote, but you can use any compote, I bet that apple and chestnuts would make it more christmassy. The texture is perfect and they are very nourishing : perfect for a snack in the afternoon with a cup of tea, or for what we French call le goûter.
