DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP AND GREEK YOGURT MUFFINS

25 Jan

  
Good morning! The weekend is over and we all know how Monday’s can be a bit of a drag, but with these yummy muffins, Monday’s can be quite enjoyable. These muffins are healthier than your store bought muffins because they are high in protein, low in sugar, and contains non-fat plain Greek yogurt. Plus, they are fluffy, moist and delicious, so you can’t go wrong. Enjoy these with a cup of tea or coffee.

Recipe: yields 12 muffins

Dry Ingredients

1 ½ cups light spelt flour

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp sea salt

½ cup raw cocoa powder (unsweetened)
Wet Ingredients

½ cup pure cane sugar

1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt (I used Liberte)

1 tsp pure Madagascar vanilla extract (I like to be fancy)

1 large cage free egg

¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
½ cup + 2 tbsp Enjoy Life semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a muffin pan with parchment paper muffin liners (I recommend using these so that the muffins won’t stick to the liners, and these peel off easily).

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, and then whisk together the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and whisk until you get a fluffy batter. Add chocolate chips.  

Using an ice cream scoop, scoop batter into the muffin liners (one scoop per muffin liner), then sprinkle additional chocolate chips at the top of each muffin. Bake muffins in the oven for 20 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test
When ready, let the muffins cool in the muffin pan for 10 minutes, then serve and enjoy.

Place batter in a large ziplock bag and snip off one corner. Pipe batter into the donut pan and sprinkle the poppy seeds at the top.

HOLIDAY FRENCH TOAST WITH APPLE COMPOTE

21 Dec

  

Good morning! Only 4 days before Christmas!🎅🏾🎄 and since I love the holidays and all the yummy recipes it has to offer, I figured i’d start by bringing some yummy treats your way! I used sprouted ancient grain bread and 2 tbsp of coconut palm sugar to caramelize the apples. Alternatively, you could omit the powdered sugar or use 1 tbsp stevia with 1 tsp cornstarch for a sugar free powdered sugar alternative. 

Recipe: serves 2 

4 slices organic sprouted grain bread (I used Silver Hills ancient grain bread)

3 organic cage free eggs

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp organic vanilla extract

2 tbsp organic coconut palm sugar

2 small gala apples (cubed)

2 tbsp hot water

Olive oil and butter for frying

Powdered sugar, optional
First of all, make your apple compote. Place a skillet over medium heat and add sugar. When its starts to caramelize, add 2 tbsp of hot water and then add the apples. (The hot water it to prevent the sugar from clumping together since you’re using a small serving). Let the apples sauté for 1 minute, then remove from heat and set aside, leaving the skillet covered (this allows the apples remain soft and juicy).

Add eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon into a bowl and mix until well incorporated. Place a skillet over medium heat and add 1 tbsp of olive oil, and then 2 tsp of butter. The olive oil prevents the butter from burning, which could also burn your bread. 

Dunk bread slices in the egg mixture until both sides are evenly coated, then place each slice in the skillet (you can place multiple slices depending on how big your pan is), and fry both sides until golden brown. 

When ready, top with apple compote and additional cinnamon and powdered sugar.
