Quick Mini~Muffins (& they’re healthy to boot)!

Since my mini~detox has been over I’ve had a mini craving, not a craving for sugar (like pop or candy), but definitely a craving for something sweet. I consider things like Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Pears or Apples to be Healthy Sweet Treats. I scoured the web for some sort of Healthy Cookie/Muffin  kind of recipe & finally took a bit of this recipe & a bit of this one, as well as substituting some ingredients I was missing for ones I had.  Let’s see if I can put~down what I did ;)

I started with a big bowl & mixed together:

1 3/4 cups of ChickPea Flour

1/2 Cup Unpacked Brown Sugar

1 tsp Baking Powder

1 1/3 cups of a mixture of Sunflower & Pumpkin Seeds

2 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Nutmeg

1 tsp Salt

I also mixed together these in a bowl & let it sit for a while:

1 Banana mashed

Chia~Egg (1TBSp Chia with 2 TBSp Warm Water)

1 1/4 cup of Vanilla Rice Milk

As I was mixing all of these together I was also heating over Low heat:
1 Chopped Apple

1 Grated Pear

1/4 cup Maple Syrup

When all my mixing was done I realized that the cookies I thought I was be making just wouldn’t work out, they were waaaay tooooo runny.

SO….

I put them in the mini cupcake holders & baked them like that instead!

350*F for aprox 8-10 minutes

When you’re trying to get muffins out of the Tins & they’re piping hot ~ try using a chop~stick…

Then let them cool, & enjoy!!

*remember, these are mini~muffins, so you can totally enjoy 3 or 4 at a time!!!

 

Chia~ also know as one of Natures super food, is rightly named! It is gluten-free, rich in Omega 3, high in Protein (complete Protein no less) & both insoluble & soluble Fiber, an amazing Anti~Oxidant & will fuel your body with sustainable Energy!

Pumpkin Seeds~ These delish Green seeds are really high in Iron, Zinc & Phorsphorus. Pretty high in Protein & a wonderful source of Fiber, a handful a day is extremely beneficial!

Sunflower Seeds~ These tiny wonder seeds are full of B Vitamins, Iron, Zinc, & Vitamin E! Try to buy them Raw as the Roasted ones tend to be rancid by the time you get them.
