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.
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!
