Eat THIS Fat Loss Breakfast to FLATTEN Your Belly (really cool trick)

The main components of this recipe are eggs, coconut flour, and a bit of coconut oil. The eggs are a wonderful protein source for breakfast or as an afternoon pick-me-up. The coconut oil keeps these muffins moist and delivers a dose of healthy fats. Coconut flour keeps things grain-free, and is low in digestible carbohydrates and high in tummy-filling fiber. As a result, its fiber really helps baked goods stay nice and fluffy.

These muffins rise well, almost doubling their size with a few short minutes in the oven.  They’re soft and lightly sweet; a sensible indulgence!

So next time you’re looking for something nosh-worthy, don’t reach for donuts or cookies.  Instead, take twenty minutes and whip up a batch of these muffins!
