Gigi Butler’s Whole Wheat Fruit and Nut Muffins Featuring Savannah Bee Tupelo Honey

I have been a fan of Savannah Bee’s products for the last 15 years. Although many people know me as the “cupcake lady”, since I am the founder and culinary creator of Gigi’s Cupcakes, I actually began my career as an entrepreneur with my own cleaning business. Through countless hours cleaning, scrubbing over 65,000 toilets and being on my feet for 12+ hours a day, I depended on great quality skincare products like Savannah Bee’s Hand Cream and Heel Balm. These two were truly life saviors then and even now at Gigi’s Cupcakes—where I frost hundreds of cupcakes a day!

I was so excited to partner with Savannah Bee on their Bake With Bees campaign since, as you know by now, I’m such a fan of everything they do!

Since a lot of us are trying to live healthier lifestyles, I wanted to create a delicious, fiber-filled and nutritious muffin using my favorite honey, Savannah Bee's Tupelo Honey.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Blessings,
Gigi
