Sugar-Free Rosmary and Lemon Muffin

Spices are a very important element in the kitchen, because they give intensity and flavour to food. They can even completely modify tasteless dishes. In my kitchen, in fact, I have built a small shelf which I filled with jars of different spices that are full of colors, smells and goodness.

For today’s recipe I decided to use a spice which is full of many benefits: the rosemary. This herb is good for the brain, it has a flavour that reduces stress and improves mood, it contrasts halitosis, it keeps skin younger and protects the liver.

To tell the truth, it is also perfect for sweet dishes, as in the case of these soft and fragrant muffins, with a special and inviting flavor.
