Tip

Cook about 2 cups of raw Quinoa in plain water the day before to save time.

You can use the leftover for lunch in a salad.

Raw Cacao contains antioxidants and magnesium so try not to substitute it.

Coconut Oil can be replaced with butter if preferred.

Coconut Sugar has lower GI value and more nutrients - raw sugar can be used if preferred.

Muffins freeze well and can be used for lunch boxes.

Can be made in a TM31 also.
