As I promised in Wednesday’s post I’m going to share the delicious and simple grain free, gluten free apple cinnamon muffins that I made on Tuesday. 🙂 They were super easy and REALLY moist, dense, and satisfying. 🙂
The process of making the muffins was definitely an exercise in faith. I was praying throughout that God might bless the endeavor. Experimenting in the kitchen always makes me a bit nervous, but it’s another awesome way to learn to trust God even more.
I was rather excited about the recipe, so I decided to make a VLOG out of the process.
I think I’m going to be experimenting so much more in the kitchen this year, Lord willing, and I can’t wait to share more recipes and better pictures (I’m planning to start shooting with a regular camera, not my ipod) per the repeated advice of many other foodie bloggers thatI follow and highly respect!
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup applesauce
- 1/2 c. milk (almond, regular, soy, or coconut)
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 packets of stevia (about 1 tsp.)
- 2 HEAPING spoons vanilla protein Powder
- Vanilla Protein Frosting
- 1/2 c. vanilla protein powder
- 1/4 c. water
- You can do this ALL IN ONE BOWL! Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together eggs and applesauce. Add milk. Sprinkle in coconut flour, protein powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder. Stir till well combined. Line muffin pan with muffin cups. Bake muffins for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Mix frosting in bowl. Add water until the frosting is the right consistency. Cool muffins for 10 minutes and drizzle with frosting. ENJOY!
I made the mistake of going too long without wearing my goggles, and I did get a little sunburned. 🙂
THE MOUNTAINS declare the Creator’s majesty! 🙂
Favorite Sunday Links:
1. Am I a Bad Blogger? – Wow, Heather is so honest and real with this and I LOVE it. I often feel like this when I’m blogging, but I think Heather hit on this struggle with an incredibly balanced perspective.
2. Do I Really Need to Lose 5 Pounds? – I struggled with this SO much after recovery. I would bounce up and down with my weight, but I am so thankful that God has brought me to a place of more stability than ever, especially with being happy at my ‘happy weight’ not an online ‘ideal weight’ that fits into an ideal weight ‘chart.’
3. Body Shaming – God made EVERY body different, and that is the beauty of our individual bodies and personalities. I am SO thankful that no person is the same.
Leaving you with a favorite Psalm for today’s Sunday link-up with Amanda!
Psalm 34:13-22, ‘Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.’
