Recipe Notes

There are a lot of small details and substitutions that can be used in this recipe. Please see post for details.
As mentioned, you will need a sugar alternative for these muffins. Healthy sugar alternatives or less not healthy sweetener include natural sugar alternatives.
I am talking about honey (which does have fructose in it), Stevia and Monk Fruit. Just make sure that you are making even swaps with volume (measures 1:1 with sugar) to make this recipe work for you.
There are also a few more ingredients that you will need.
We will also be using whole wheat flour and almond milk. Also, unsweetneed cocoa powder, apple cider vinegar (helps the muffins in rising), olive oil (or similar plant oil), and no added sugar apple sauce.
If olive oil seems to heavy for you, try a fruitier oil such as greapeseed oil.
