Bissap and moringa muffins

Today, I'd like to share with you a recipe that's ideal for a children's snack
with lots of pep, freshness and vitamins. A recipe I made on purpose when I received my package from Kwenda Word.

Let's zoom in on the ingredients to see their benefits.

Focus on Bissap

Infusions of hibiscus have been used as a remedy since ancient Egypt
, where they were used to lower body temperature in
cases of heatstroke, as an aphrodisiac, and against insomnia and
restlessness. They are still used today in many traditional medicines
Bissap regulates blood pressure and heart health. Hibiscus infusion is an excellent source of antioxidants. Hibiscus has antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, and is said to help treat
colds, coughs, angina, rhinitis, flu and any inflammation of the upper respiratory tract

Focus on Moringa

Moringa is a tree whose leaves are more nutritious than kale
and offer powerful anti-inflammatory benefits comparable to
those of turmeric. It is grown abundantly in the tropics and is known
in ancient cultures as the "Tree of Life".

Moringa is packed with protein, essential amino acids, 27 vitamins
and 46 antioxidants. It has a green flavor similar to matcha and
adds a touch of sweet, healthy green to smoothies, savory dishes and sauces.

The powder smells like a sweet, peppery version of green tea and adds a healthy
glow of green to everything it touches. It has the taste of matcha, enriched with
notes of blue-green algae reminiscent of spirulina. When added to
water, the light powder dissolves easily, giving a distinct, bitter and slightly sweet "green" aroma

These muffins are so fresh, delicious and tangy thanks to the bissap.

To make this recipe, I used Kwenda Word's bissap powder. A powder that I find very good, without sand and that can be easily integrated into our preparations for cakes, juices...
