Paleo Cinnamon Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

111 Easy Peasy recipe. Just throwing together some extra ingredients I have since I am baking other things at the moment! I saw this on instagram from “Taylor made it Paleo” and it looked good, so I just added an extra ingredient to the mix and baked them.

These are pretty yummy. I think I need to invest in some silicone muffin tins because these certainly stuck to the bottom of the paper and I wasted some when I could have eaten it! So I would suggest either using silicon muffin liners or possibly spraying a little non stick spray into the cupcake liners.

Ingredients:

* 2 bananas
* 2 eggs
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 2 tbsp. honey
* 1/2 cup almond flour
* 2/3 cup sunflower seed butter
* 1 tbsp. cinnamon
* 1/2 tsp baking soda
* 1/2 cup enjoy life chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375F
2. Mix all ingredients together in a food processor except for the chocolate chips. Add those in after the mixture is smooth with a spoon.
3. Fill your cupcake tins about 3/4 full
4. Bake for about 15 minutes

Enjoy!!

Paleo Vanilla Bean Chocolate Chunk Cookies- Gluten and Nut free

vanilla beanWell, I am pretty sure these would have been good if I hadn’t burnt the crap out of them. But it’s okay because I am doing that sugar detox thing again and I am on day 5. Except I dont feel any skinnier or healthier, just annoyed that I cant eat sugar and that I burned $10 worth of Whole foods stuff. I was attempting to be a nice festive Account Executive tomorrow for my stores and while I delivered Christmas gifts I was going to give them cookies. Instead now I am just an annoyed Bah humbug fat feeling grouch. Maybe I will still give the burned cookies to the stores that arent making their numbers. hahahahaha. Thats mean. hee hee.

Also I think the fact that I havent been working out is starting to get to me. I hurt my shoulder recently and can’t do crossfit for a month so I am a little stir crazy. I have tried to do other things, but without the use of shoulders it gets kind of dull and my legs and bootie are thick enough, they don’t need any more squats. Damn shoulder. Damn cookies.

Okay, on to the recipe. Just dont burn them and I am sure they will taste good.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sunbutter
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 vanilla bean (without the seeds)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • dash of sea salt
  • 3/4 cup of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chunk Chips
  1. Mix all the ingredients minus the chocolate chips in a food processor. Add the chips at the very end but I mixed them in with a spoon. If you hit the button it chops them up.
  2. Put about a large spoonful of the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I used 2 sheets and each one held about 8 cookies.
  3. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes. NOT 16-18 minutes. Unless you like charcoal bottom dry ass cookies. Then go ahead and forget about them a few minutes. I would personally take them out a little on the chewy side if I ever make these again, so there is my advice on that!

Now hopefully yours come out much better then mine! You could probably add some walnut pieces in these and they would be super good. Oh, and props to PaleOMG for the recipe. That is like my paleo cooking bible website. Love it.

(Okay I made them again. This time I put walnut pieces in it and baked them for 12 minutes, and as I thought…they are great!)

Sweet Potato Brownies

pic9IYePk21 day sugar detox is OVER! I lost about 5lbs and gained a ton of knowledge on how much sugar you can easily eat in a day without even realizing it. So I think overall it was a huge success. I plan on doing it twice a year. Next one starting January 1st to kick off the new year, then again in August. Its funny after its over you’re like… what now? Well luckily for me there is another challenge right around the corner! Its called the “Whole Life Challenge”. Which is basically 8 weeks of being accountable for nutrition, excersice, stretching, vitamins, and there is some extra credit weekly challenges you can do also. I will also be taking measurements, doing a workout that I will test in the beginning and again at the end, and logging in each day on line. I love stuff like this. Its basically eating paleo- but again, no sugar. But this challenge I can have fruits, just limited amounts. Anyone can do this challenge. I am joining as part of Sausalito Crossfit, but anyone can do it. Check it out. www.wholelifechallenge.com

So it starts September 15th for 8 weeks. So that officially gives me 11 more days to make some paleo treats again! This one looks nice and chocolately yummilicious. I told Joe I would make him the Paleo Pecan Carmel bars before I head back down to LA for 5 days this week. He loves those. But these look like they will be good. They are in the oven right now, so I will post pics and results soon!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes
  • 3 eggs whisked
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 cup enjoy life chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt (woops, I forgot this)
  • I also topped mine with just a sprinkle of coconut shavings

Bake the sweet potato until nice and soft. About 30 mins at 425. In the meantime, combine all your wet ingredients together in your food processor. Eggs, honey, vanilla, and coconut oil. When those are all combined add in your coconut flour, baking soda and powder, and cocoa powder. Mix all these ingredients together. Mash up your cooked sweet potato and slowly add that to the mixer as well. Put your chocolate chips in, mix together and your ready to pour!

Pour into an 8×8 baking dish and sprinkle the top with a few chocolate chips and a little bit of coconut. Let cool for a few minutes and then enjoy. I am now waiting for that moment myself!
