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
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.
Or bake in a loaf pan for 45-50 mins. and slice into 12 slices.
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.
