I have a delicious recipe to share with you today! One of our studio assistants brought in a blueberry muffin from Starbucks on Tuesday, and I have been craving one since then. Muffins are really something I struggle with because I LOVE them but I know they are usually a nutritionless carbohydrate and sugar bomb. That kind of takes the fun out of eating one when all I can think about is how much sugar is in it. I know, I'm a total buzz kill!
Anyways, I decided to experiment with a healthier blueberry muffin that I could make in the microwave whenever my craving strikes. I must say, I was quite pleased with how my first test run turned out!
First, I assessed the ingredients I had in the pantry and got to work creating a muffin batter.
I used my mini Ninja to make sure my batter was nice a smooth. Anytime I cook with coconut flour, I usually bust out the blender to get rid of any clumps.
After my batter was all blended up, I poured it in an extra tall mug to prevent any spill over while microwaving.
Check out the final product. Not too shabby for the microwave!
I was super excited with how it turned out and dived right in once it cooled a bit. I will definitely be making this bad boy again in the future. I'm thinking tomorrow sounds good! :)
- 1 tbsp almond flour
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 tbsp ground flax seed
- 3 tbsp almond milk (or milk of choice)
- 2 egg whites
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 2 packets of stevia
- 1 tbsp maple syrup (this is option and I used the sugar free kind)
- dash of salt
- 1/4 cup blueberries
Let me know if you give it a try! I hope you all have a great rest of your day!
