Misc. Monday

Happy February and Happy Monday to you! Well, old man Winter has returned with a wrath~snow has once again pummeled our state. We had a foretaste of spring last week and I loved it. The snow will keep me busy-I will be helping hubby to shovel and will also be spending time downstairs. Last week we had Lily over for a few days and these two pups are the best friends. Aren't they cute!

I happened to find a new recipe at Gluten Free Homemaker for Paleo Muffins, so Saturday I made some.  I get tired of buying g.f. muffins in the store because of the high amount of sugar they add-maybe manufactures think sugar will add to their flavor.
For those who are gluten free here is the recipe:
Paleo Muffins
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salk
2 tsp cinnamon
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup chopped walnuts(I substituted almonds)
the recipe didn't call for chocolate chips, but I would add some and maybe some shredded coconut.

~Preheat oven to 350, grease 10 muffins tins. I used paper liners and actually had enough batter for 12 muffins.
~In a mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
~Add the eggs, applesauce, vanilla and honey.  Mix until combined.
~Spoon into muffin tins and sprinkle with nuts.
~Bake for 20-25 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Yesterday morning hubby and I had these for breakfast; I loved them, but would add more ingredients like I stated above.  Hubby said they were edible, just not his favorite-which I attribute to the lack of sugar.  He is very good about trying gluten free food and they didn't taste gluten free, just very light.

Hope you have a great day!

  3. We're hoping it turns to rain before it reaches us. Well, actually, the hubby and I are hoping for the rain. Cam and Maggie might have other thoughts. ;)
