    Silkster's Note:

    Lactose-free and delicious.... from scratch! These breakfast muffins are easy to make and will be the talk of the house when you make them. I say nearly guilt-free because of the maple syrup glaze. Without the glaze, the muffins are guilt-free. Vegetarians can skip the bacon and still enjoy some of the best muffins you'll ever have!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4-6



    Units: US | Metric




    1. 1
      Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. 2
      Start cooking the bacon strips in a frying pan or griddle until crispy. Continue to step 3.
    3. 3
      Combine dry ingredients and spices in a bowl.
    4. 4
      Separate the whites & yolks of 2 eggs. Keep the whites in a small bowl. Keep the yolks for next step.
    5. 5
      In a third medium-sized bowl, whisk together: almond milk, apple sauce, honey and 1 full egg, 2 egg yolks.
    6. 6
      Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
    7. 7
      Use a mixer to beat egg whites until peaks form. Then fold them into the batter.
    8. 8
      Chop the bacon into bite-size bits. About a quarter-inch to half-inch squares or so.
    9. 9
      Set aside the equivalent of one bacon strip, stir the rest into the batter.
    10. 10
      Pour ¼ cup of batter onto a greased griddle.
    11. 11
      Sprinkle some of the left-over bacon bits evenly over top of each muffin in the tin.
    12. 12
      Cook 12 to 17 minutes until golden brown. NOTE: test each muffin with a toothpick to make sure they are done. The toothpick should come out clean – no batter should stick to the toothpick.
    13. 13
      GLAZE: In a small saucepan simmer maple syrup and lemon juice, stirring occasionally, until reduced to a thick (thicker than maple syrup) syrup. This will take about 15 minutes over a low flame.
    14. 14
      Remove from heat and wait for the muffins to finish baking.
    15. 15
      When muffins are out of the oven and cool enough to handle, poke a few holes in the muffin top with a toothpick.
    16. 16
      Dip each muffin top in the maple glaze.
    17. 17
      After dipping all twelve muffins, start with the first muffin you dipped and dip each muffin again.
