Coco-Nutty Mini Muffins

My coco- nutty granola recipe was so good that I decided to let it inspire me to make these muffins with very similar ingredients!    They did not disappoint! The taste is very similar to banana bread but the added cacao nibs and coconut flakes paired so well with the other flavors 👌🏻 these muffins!coco-nutty mini muffins:1/2 almond flour1 Mashed up banana1 egg1 tablespoon apple sauce2 tablespoons Almond butterHandful of Cacao nibs1 tablespoon Maple syrupPinch of Sea saltPinch of CinnamonPinch of coconut flakes on topBake at 350 for 15 mins    Hi!

Chocolate Raspberry Mug Cake

Most of my recipes are grain free and dairy free simply because my body has a hard time digesting these foods. Using coconut flour allows this mug cake to have a very similar texture to that of traditional cake. I make my own nut milk at home using just nuts and water and so that is what I used here. I choose applesauce rather than oils because I prefer a more natural and less processed ingredient. It really does work so well as an oil replacer! My sweetener of choice for each of my recipes are either honey, maple syrup or dates. This allows desserts to actually taste like desserts but without all of that processed sugar!

I failed! Kinda!

I completed the 15 day fermentation challenge, sort of. I say I failed because I trailed off at the end.  I did not lose weight. In fact due to increased fiber, I GAINED weight at first. But that resolved itself so I had a net gain/loss of 0 lbs. My skin actually got WORSE! Breakout city. I like to this it is because of detox and it'll get better after some time. I did experience good sleep while on the challenge. And for me, that was worth it. Good restorative sleep is the pinnacle of good health. Getting good sleep...

Let's go! Fermented Food Challenge!

I think as I become more and more into gardening for healthy edible foods, I become more and more intrigued by fermentation. Composting itself is the use of decaying organic material to better our soil and growing conditions. What does this methodology lead to within our own bodies?
