½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
2 ½ tsp cinnamon
½ cup grated carrot
½ cup grated apple
½ cup crushed pineapple

RECIPE BY KERRY LOCATELLI, BNAT
Preheat the oven to 160 C fan forced or 180 C conventional.
Add all the ingredients (except the orange, golden brown sweetener, avocado oil, eggs & vanilla) to a large bowl & mix well.
Blend the orange, golden brown sweetener, avocado oil, eggs & vanilla together in a blender & pour over all the other ingredients in the big bowl.
Mix well & allow the muffin mixture to stand for 5mins.
Line muffin trays with baking cups/cupcake liners, this recipe makes 12 regular muffins.
Spoon the muffin mixture into the muffin trays & place in the oven for 20-25mins.
*My oven is a hot one. My baking that contains Clean Lean Protein can burn quickly, so I like to bake for half the time & then cover the muffins with a baking tray or foil for the 2nd half of the baking time.
Allow the muffins to cool completely before you eat them.
"I absolutely love muffins. They are an all-time comfort food for me, and when the weather started getting cooler, I found myself craving the flavours of my favourite, Morning Glory muffins! Filled with wholesome ingredients, they are high in protein, full of fibre, lower in carbs, full of good fats and they are incredibly satisfying. They are gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, but full of flavour!"
