Banana Chocolate Chip (Paleo) Muffins

Banan Chocolate Chip Paleo Muffins

Banan Chocolate Chip Paleo Muffins Here it is you Instragramers! As promised:

It is no secret I've been experimenting with paleo meals.  No meat for me, of course, but eggs have snuck into our menu.  And it creates an opportunity for more nutrient packed, clean desserts.  These muffins are protein packed, organic, clean, mean, delicious, and the absolute perfect project for a snowy snowed in day.

Here's how I did them:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prep your muffin tins (this makes 12 big guys).

Put all of these in the bowl of you mixer in the following order: 4 ripe bananas (the riper the better...I may have just made that word up)

Put all of these in the bowl of you mixer in the following order:

4 ripe bananas (the riper the better...I may have just made that word up)

4 eggs

1/2 cup almond butter

1/2 cup coconut or almond flour

2 tblsp coconut oil (organic, virgin, unrefined, melted)

1 tblsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup chocolate chips (vegan grain sweetened if you can find it)

Fill your muffin tins.

Bake for 25 min.

Cool on racks.

EAT!

Overnight Oats

Love Life and Lollipops- Overnight Oats I cannot tell you how easy this "recipe" is.  Ok I'll tell you: IT'S REALLY CRAZY RIDICULOUS EASY!  It also happens to be raw(ish), vegan, and wildly healthful.

Once upon a time, I struggled with breakfast and veganism.  It can be tricky, I admit, but once you find your go to's, it's a snap.

This one takes a tid bid of forethought, but almost no prep and literally zero in the am.

Here's how you do it:

Some time before you to to bed at night, put the following ingredients into a glass jar or bowl or whathaveyou (no plastic please):

Oats (as much as you'd like to eat in the morning or enough for as many of you as there will be breakfasting)- I like to buy Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Rolled Oats

1-2 tblsp Chia Seeds

3-4 chopped Dates

1 tblsp raw honey

handful of Walnuts

3 tblsp Coconut Flakes

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Vanilla

enough Almond Mylk to cover (this is the "tricky" part...pour and let it soak in, then pour more, soak, pour...)

Cover and leave it in your fridge til the morning.  Serve cold.  You can sprinkle a bit more cinnamon and/or coconut on top and a splash of almond mylk to finish it.  Enjoy!
