protein powder.

I made a blend of some nuts/seeds to add as a booster to my smoothies. I sometimes drink smoothies as a meal, so always looking for the most nutritious things to put in there! I blended these in a vitamix and store them in the fridge and add a tablespoon or so to my smoothies for some added boost of nutrients!

1.5 T sunflower seeds
1.5 T pumpkin seeds or pepitas
1.5 T hemp seeds
3 T raw almonds

Blend together in a vitamix or spice/coffee grinder

When done add in
1 T ground flax seed

and mix together and store in airtight container in the fridge until ready to use.

Wow. These muffins are some of the best I have ever made.

They are super easy to customize to your liking – you and mix and match all kinds of ways. And without any added refined sugar, they are pretty healthy too!

I found the recipe here.

Here’s what I used:

  • 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, divided
  • 1/2 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup or agave if you don’t eat honey)
  • 1 egg replacer
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a muffin tin.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, and salt. Stir in 1/2 cup shredded coconut, then add your mixins (pecans, chocolate chips, etc)
  3. In a separate, medium bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, mashed banana, honey, egg replacer and vanilla.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Pour the batter into your prepared muffin tin and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup coconut. To
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes.

Other mixins:

  • 1/3 cup chopped candied ginger
  • 1/3 cup chopped dried cherries or cranberries

Sky is the limit!
