Almond Butter Muffins

1 comment:
Good Morning Friends,

I know I Know I hardly blog anymore. I'm sorry - its because I work now and when I started this journey over 5 years ago, I did not. Lets not talk about work though. It is very difficult working with people every day that you clash personalities with. I just try to keep my head down and to myself - that's all. I need the job.

I remember when I started making my own healthy treats, I measured exactly and followed the recipes to a "T".

Now you should see me...I don't use the measuring spoons - just regular spoons. I'm like your grandma - a pinch of this and a pinch of that.

This morning I made some Almond Butter Muffins and I must say they are GOOOOD!!

The food processor has become my favorite baking helper in the kitchen. If you don't have one - WHY??
Ingredients:

1 cup of almond butter - When ever I add Nut Butters to bread, it just makes it taste so much better.

I make my own in the food processor. I put over 1 cup of raw almonds in the food processor and let it go a while.
When it starts to soften and look like peanut butter - you will have to scrape down the sides. I add in a bit of almond oil, and a few shakes of salt. - OK DONE.

Add in the other ingredients:

1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1 tbsp of powdered stevia
a few shakes of Cinnamon
a little vanilla extract

1/4 c of coconut flour - sifted
1/2 c almond flour
1 tbsp of Chia seeds - I put chia seeds in EVERYTHING

1/4 c of Natures Hollow maple syrup
3 eggs

Keep mixing real well... then add in

1/2 c coconut oil melted

Keep mixing... then add in some unsweetened (almond or coconut or cashew) milk to get to the right consistency (about 1/4 c)

Then fill 12 silicone baking cups and place on baking sheet and Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

 Enjoy..........

If you are telling yourself that losing weight is too hard - or you can't do it - and you keep trying different things because you think the first one didn't work-------Keep this in MIND....

The only thing I did different that maybe what you did  - is NOT GIVE UP!!! That's All...

If you want it bad enough - You CAN DO IT!!!

Thanks for listening and Have a Great Day.

This is PurpleRosy signing off...

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
