History

Eating a Saltimate love mini muffin is like biting into all-around happiness, inner peace and bliss and these little bundles of pure love take next to no time to make. And yes, they do contain a few of those toffee chips… but, hey, it is Christmas after all, right? Hahaha! GLUTEN-FREE (if you’re using gluten-free flour), these treats may be small but they’re far from being ordinary. A close relative of my famous Salt me up cookies, this is a “tried and tested” version of that recipe in the shape of soft, moist muffins. One small bite, one huge celebration!

People have been asking me for ages how to make muffins using my Salt me up energy cookie recipe so I had no other choice but to offer you this little gift. And needless to say, everyone loves them, I mean really, really loves them. A small batch of Saltimate love mini muffins made with loving care is a perfectly delicious hostess gift…

What do you think?

By the way, this recipe is unbelievably scrumptious if you use my caramel date puree. The flavour goes right off the charts… that’s if you like caramel of course.

Storage

  • One week in the fridge.
  • Three months in the freezer (but if you make them with chickpea flour, your muffins will be a bit crumbly after they’ve been frozen).
