Self Love Muffins

To love yourself is to love and respect your body and what you put into it. This does not mean that we deprive ourselves.

    Yum – sounds delicious!

    I’m such a fan of hazelnuts and almonds, and just last week my husband asked if I could make “something with coconut in it”.

    I came to this post via your comment on my blog (Moonpreneur), and bingo – here’s something with coconut in it, and sugar-free to boot.

    Thanks for sharing this, and have a great week.
