I feel like I need to follow up my Diets Suck post w/ some clarification. I don’t want to give you all a pass to think “Yea I’m just gonna live my life and eat what I want screw diets… YOLO!!” Eating well does take sacrifice. There are certainly things you will need to avoid or eat less of. But its frickin life. You want to feel like crap, eat crap, you want to be fit, don’t eat crap. It’s that simple…and It’s not that tough. Giving up your beloved cheddar chive mashed potatoes sucks, I get it, but it’s not thattt tough. Child birth is tough, med school is tough. Suck it up. Seriously. Will power builds the more you act with it. You WILL crave those things less (for real, studies prove it). So next time you are contemplating throwing in the towel think about our soldier’s. They have it tough. YOU can do this shit.
I tried a new muffin recipe I got from Fast Paleo. I didn’t realize how many eggs it called for until I started the recipe. Yikes.! I cut out some fat by using 3 egg whites, 3 whole.
- Preheat over to 350 deg
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed ( I used 3 and 1/2)
- 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted (I used olive oil because I ran out of coconut oil)
- 2T honey (I used agave because I ran out of honey)
- 1T vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coconut flour, sifted (heaping)
- 1tsp baking powder
- 1tsp baking soda
- 1/2tsp salt
- 1T cinnamon
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts ( I used more than 1/3)
- 6 eggs
- 20-25 minutes
You can mix the wet and dry ingredients separately like real bakers, but I like to live on the edge so I toss it all in one big bowl and blend. Place in lined cupcake tins and bake. I left mine in for 25 minutes because I filled those bad boys up high. Eat them for breakfast or a sweet snack. Keep in mind anytime you are making a health-ified treat, it is not going to be as sweet as the traditional version. Even so, I thought these where pretty tasty. Great with a glass of almond milk or a scoop of almond butter!
What’s your favorite breakfast muffin??
