1. If you're not a fan of coconut - use 20 more grams of rice flour instead of coconut flour
2. The cottage cheese should be well drained
3. If you don't have rice flour use semola, corn flour or all-purpose wheat flour
4. Cook cottage cheese fritters over medium or medium-low heat, they should be cooked through but not too dark

Skinny Carrot Cake Muffins by Kayla Itsines

A healthier version of famous crumble cake - we made it without refined wheat flour, sugar, without butter - it's totally vegan. Wholemeal almond flour gives it wonderful chocolate colour and amazing aroma. So go ahead, choose your favourite filling and create!

Magical muffins by Kayla Itsines. I simply adore all pastry with carrot, but usually it's not as low-calorie as it seems to be. For example, usual Starbucks muffin is approximately "weights" 400-500 calories. This amazing recipe is something else! Without nuts and frosting it's just 136 cal, with frosting - 175 cal and 228 cal with with nuts and frosting! At the same time they are juicy, spicy and delicious. Enjoy!

Wholemeal Raspberry Muffins
Wholemeal muffins with berries by Gordon Ramsay (from Healthy Appetite book) are both tasty and healthy. They are ideal for breakfast, during the day snack or as a dessert. The best way to serve is as soon as they are baked but you also can keep them in an airtight container for a couple of days.

Coconut oil is perfect here, but you can also use any vegetable oil (olive or grape seed) and even melted butter
Instead of spelt flour you can take wholemeal wheat flour. Also 100-150g of spelt/wheat flour can be replaced by oat flour, but muffins will become thicker
You can use coconut sugar, honey or maple syrup if you don't have Muscovado
