A simple muffin sweetened with fruit only. These are great for snacks and lunches. They are also FODMAP friendly. I sometimes use almond or other nut flours. Remember that coconut flour is particularly absorbent and sucks up a lot of moisture. As a rough guide, which has worked well for me, substitute 1/2 cup of coconut flour with 2 cups of almond flour.
