1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp fresh Lemon Zest


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a mini muffin pan or use paper liners.

In a small cup, mix together flaxseed powder and apple juice. Let stand for 15 minutes to allow the mixture to thicken into a gel.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, lucuma powder baking powder, baking soda and sea salt.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, applesauce, coconut oil, agave, vanilla and lemon zest. Mix in the chopped dragonfruit. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined – do not overmix.
