Grapefruit Spelt Muffins (vegan)

Probably one of my favorite fruit flavors is grapefruit. I love the sweet and sour crisp taste of it.I find having a grapefruit at breakfast to be so filling and satisfying. It also tastes so good in desserts and drinks!  
These are full of grapefruit citrus taste and healthy for you! They're perfect for breakfast or as a snack. I like having mine with a smear of jam and peanut butter or coconut oil.
They're easy to make. Free of eggs, dairy, are refined sugar free and vegan
If you don't want or can't use a full cup of grapefruit juice you can top it off with another. 
I topped mine off with elderflower juice and it was delicious! Orange or apple juice would be great as well.
