Triplet Baby Carrot Spiced Muffins

Wanted to bake some carrot muffin since weeks ago and finally, I decided to pull my socks up and get the carrots going.

Berry Chocolate Chip Scones (oil free / butter free)

These are oil free, butter free and are a healthier alternative to your classic buttery scones.

These are for those who wants a healthy “scone” with no butter added. You would probably be thinking why would people want to eat a scone if a scone doesnt taste like how a scone should be.

I feel that Berry Chocolate Chip Scones adapted from deliciouslyella:) Serving : 6 scones ( I got 10 mini triangular scones) Prep time: 15mins ; Baking time: 30- 35mins 1 cup of spelt flour 1 cup almond meal 2 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce 3 tbsp maple syrup 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk 1/2 cup of chopped fruits ( 4 strawberries + handful of blueberries + 2 tbsp dried cranberries + 2 tbsp …
