So Happy You're Joining Me in My Quest for Wellness!
I appreciate all your comments and emails! Many of you are following my lead to be your healthiest self! That's AWESOME! I'm thrilled… I am feeling better. I've lost 11 pounds so far. I am loading my body with fresh, stirfried veggies every day – I mean lots of veggies!! Even ones that I'm not particularly fond of because I have found how they can help to heal my body.
And… believe me, after all these years of fighting this disease, my body DOES need healing. In each of my short video blogs, I'm sharing with you my personal journey. I'm telling you about my failures as well as my successes.
God gave us bodies to serve Him and do His will in our lives. I want to be strong enough and heathy enough to do just that! What about you?
Now, I want to share with you one of my favorite recipes. You see, I had really gotten addicted to gluten free chocolate chip muffis. So, every morning, when I start craving those old muffins, I have found my own recipe to replace those. It is sweet because it is filled with bananas, applesauce and a little honey… but, I'm not eating sugar!
Here it is!
Nancy's chocolate chip Muffins
- 2 to 3 tablespoons honey (you can leave this out if you like)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 eggs
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil (I used plain applesauce instead)
- 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 3 ripe – soft bananas
- 1/4 cup cashew milk
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips – or raisins – or crushed pineapple
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
(I use Enjoy Life – no soy)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cream together coconut oil (or applesauce), honey & vanilla until fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time, and then add apple cider vinegar. Combine dry
ingredients in separate bowl and slowly add dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
Next mash bananas and milk in a bowl – soft consistency and fold in
banana mixture and chocolate chips (or raisins, or pineapple).
Pour or spoon this mixture into lined muffin tins.
Mix topping an add to tops… Bake 15 to 20 minutes in 350 degree oven.
These are definitely YUMMY!!
