Paleo Pizza Muffins, you say? Why, I don’t mind if I do!

Oh, man.   These are good!  I have to say that I have really missed baking since I started doing the paleo lifestyle.  There is something about baking – something about mixing a variety of different ingredients together to create something totally new.  It is just like alchemy for me.  Making dinner just doesn’t cut it.  You have a raw roast, then, you have a cooked roast.   Here, you have a bit of this, a bit of that, and fifteen minutes later, you have pizza muffin perfection!  Enjoy!   

 

I found this recipe from a link that my friend, Annalisa, sent me.  Check out this site – it has some great recipes!

Paleo Banana Carrot Muffins that don’t taste like you are eating a brick.

I am sick of eggs for breakfast – just sick of them.  I don’t care if I never see an egg again, well, at least for a week or so.  I saw this recipe, and at first I was a tad suspicious. I have never really baked with almond flour before, but I have to say that I am impressed.  These muffins are not beautiful, but they are very yummy.  Breakfast is saved!

I found this recipe at a cool website called Paleo Plan – it was posted on a Facebook Whole 30 Group page.

Ingredients

–         2 cups almond flour

–         2 tsp baking soda

–         1 tsp salt

–         1 Tbs cinnamon

–         1 cup dates, pitted

–         3 ripe bananas

–         3 eggs

–          1tsp apple cider vinegar

–         ¼ cup coconut oil, melted

–         1 ½ cups carrots, shredded

–         ¾ cup walnuts (or nuts of choice) finely chopped

Instructions:

–         Preheat oven to 350 degrees

–         Line muffin pan with paper liners

–         In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon

–         In a food processor, combine dates, bananas, eggs, vinegar, and oil

–         Add mixture from food processor to dry mixture in large bowl and combine thoroughly.

–         Fold in carrots and nuts

–         Spoon mixture into paper lined muffin tins (At this point, I was worried that the muffins might overflow and burn in the bottom of my oven – they didn’t, so feel free to go ahead and fill the muffin cups up to close to the top.  You don’t have to stop at 2/3s full like you would for regular muffins.)

–         Bake for 25 minutes

–         Try to let them cool before you eat one!
