Have you ever stopped to think that Coconut Sugar is bursting with Potassium*? Well neither had I until I looked into it.

But what that means is that the minerals in Coconut Sugar helps keep your heart working well. Potassium is good for all muscles, in fact, not just your heart. So, in an age where people are proud to “quit sugar”, I’m proud to tell you I have a small sprinking of Coconut Sugar ever day I can. But you’re here to read about Black Doris plum Muffins, and they look factastic, thank for the photo Zoe!

*Potassium is a mineral and electrolyte that plays a significant role in metabolism, water, and chemical balance in the body. Muscle contractions, nerve impulses and regulation of heartbeat require potassium. Deficiencies of potassium have been linked to an increased risk of hypertension, kidney stones, osteoporosis, carbohydrate intolerance, stroke and cardiovascular disease. Source:
