Sugarfree Harvest Muffins that have no added sugar in any form and are 100% vegan too. These muffins are moist and packed with healthy ingredients.
It’s time for Bread Bakers and this month, our host Renu (Cook with Renu) wanted us to bake with fresh fruit and without refined sugar. It is quite a challenge to bake without sugar but Renu was ok with alternate sugars. I found the perfect recipe for the theme in ‘Naturally Sweet’ cookbook. These Sugarfree Harvest Muffins have no added sugar in any form and are 100% vegan too.I’ve never baked anything sweet without sugar – in some form or the other. So I was a little apprehensive on how these muffins were going to turn out. But I had faith in the America’s test kitchen guys – they know what they are doing.
These sugarfree harvest muffins have some unusual ingredients. Apple cider is added along with warm aromatic spices and orange zest to give a nice flavor. Shredded sweet potato gives a natural, subtle sweetness and earthy flavor to the muffins. Sweet-tart dried cranberries complement the other flavor and give bites of sweetness and while eating.The muffins turned out moist and fluffy. I subbed some of the all purpose flour with whole-wheat pastry flour, but that didn’t change the texture too much. I wasn’t sure how the kids would like these, but to my surprise, my son came back for a second one. I would probably serve them with some jam (naturally sweetened, of course), just because I like my sweets sweet 😉
