We love to have muffins at our house for a quick breakfast, snack or treat. I love knowing that we made them with fresh, healthy ingredients. I keep them in the fridge and usually enjoy them cold but they are also really good if you warm them in the toaster oven with a slather of coconut butter.
The smell of these muffins will make you want to gobble them up. They are grain free, gluten free, refined sugar free, full of fruits, vegetables, protein and fiber…what is not to love? I have made carrot cake muffins before but the addition of decaf black chai tea made the flavors explode!
1 ripe banana
1 carrot grated
1/2 apple grated
1/4 cup sweet potato or yam puree
2 farm fresh eggs
2 tbsp honey (or more if you like it sweeter)
1 tbsp vanilla
2 tbsp. melted coconut oil
1 tbsp coconut milk
1/4 cup Chai tea concentrate (try this or you can make your own)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/2 tsp ground flaxseed
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
2-3 tbsp. coconut flour
1/4 cup raisins
Mix banana, carrot, apple, sweet potato, eggs, honey, vanilla, coconut oil, coconut milk and chai until combined. Add protein powder, flaxseed, chia seeds, cinnamon and baking soda until smooth. Slowly add coconut flour, 1 tbsp. at a time until batter is slightly thick but not too much (you can add more chai or milk if needed). Add in the raisins and scoop into greased muffin pan or line with muffin wrappers. Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes. Allow muffins to cool on a wire rack. ENJOY!
a happy girl and a tasty treat!
