I woke up early today and made these Paleo Harvest Muffins for breakfast along with a healthy smoothie.
The breakfast smoothie was made with a handful of raw broccoli florets, 1 packet of pureed Acai, 1 frozen banana, 1/2 Fuji apple, a scoop of protein and greens powder and water. I have spent years finding a protein powder that is easily digestible, tastes great and makes me feel good. Although this one is not grain free, it surprisingly does not make me feel bloated or have a stomach ache. It is made with sprouted protein, which makes it much easier to digest than others and I have noticed that I have a lot more energy.
So today, my kids got veggies from their Paleo Harvest Muffin and veggies from their smoothie! Yay!
These muffins are very easy to make! I wanted to create something that did not have several different blends of grain free flour, therefore, I decided to stick with a base of blanched almond flour.
In a large mixing bowl or Kitchenaid mixer, whisk together your blanched almond flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
Be sure to get all the lumps out of your flour.
Next, add in your eggs, avocado oil, apple cider vinegar and vanilla. Blend until smooth.
Then, fold in your grated zucchini, carrot and apple. Be sure to incorporate well.
Finally, line a 12 cup muffin pan with baking cups and then use an ice cream scoop to pour your batter into the baking cups.
Then, bake in a preheat oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 22-23 minutes.
Be sure to allow your Paleo Harvest Muffins to cool for a few minutes before serving.
Any leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge or room temperature for up to 2 days.
