Oatmeal Scuffins

 
 
Last week, I ordered a few cookbooks from the library. I’m on the waiting list for a couple of them, but I did get to pick up The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook 2 over the weekend.  It’s the first time that I read any of Tosca Reno’s books, and so far so good.  I’m a fan of the ingredients that she uses and the tips for healthy eating that are included.
 
 
 
The book is packed with lots of easy recipes to choose from and although they’re not all gluten-free, they are simple to convert.  One recipe that caught my attention is called Oatmeal Scuffins.  Tosca describes them as the perfect blend between a muffin and a scone.  She’s right! They’re delicious 🙂  You can have them on their own or with a spread of coconut oil.  Mmmm… makes for a hearty breakfast.
 
 
Have you read or tried any recipes from The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook (one or two)?
