An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
Have you ever checked out the ingredients in a store-bought muffin?
Well, do, so you are informed, but just avoid store-bought muffins because the contents are frightening. Not to mention the caloric burden (like 500 calories a pop!) Same is true for “fresh-baked” muffins you buy at most coffee shops– ahem, Starbucks, I’m talking to you too.
Luckily for us all, I’ve got a screaming good recipe for some seriously good muffins AND they’re wicked good FOR you too! Add some chocolate chips if you’re need more sweets this season!
Makes 12-16 muffins
1 1/2 cups gluten-free oats
1 egg, hormone free, cage free chickens, of course
1/2 cup walnuts *
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup coconut sugar (can sub brown sugar or date sugar)
3/4 cup Maple syrup
1/8 cup butter, softened
3/4 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp chia seeds*
2 Tbsp flax seeds*
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips *
Preheat oven to 350
In a large mixing bowl combine softened butter, maple syrup baking soda and sugar.
Next add egg and peanut butter. Mix well.
Next mix in oats and nuts and seeds (chocolate chips too if you’re indulging)
Pour mix evenly in to 12 greased (I use coconut oil) muffin pan cups.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges start to brown.
Enjoy the Yum!
