Sunshine Paleo Muffins

paleo55  Happy New Year to you!

I suppose this means we have to eat healthy again, don’t we?



Slumped shoulders.

I’ve been living up my Christmas Break baking extravaganza (I won’t even tell you how many Lilikoi pies I’ve made and how many cinnamon rolls I’ve eaten) and maybe I’m just trying to make myself so sick that I’ll be happy as a clam to give up all good food  really not good for you food for… a month. At least.

But I can’t just give up baking completely.

These are normally called “Morning Glory” muffins. There are a million versions on the internet. I kind of like mine the best because I’m not super into chunky nuts, but I like raisins in the right proportions.

They don’t taste like normal muffins. I won’t lie to you. They’ll do in a pinch, and especially if you are the kind of person who normally eats nine muffins in a sitting and are trying to be the kind of person that only eats one.

Ok, two.


FINNNNNNNE, I’ll have another one, but only if you stop looking at me like that.

Bake a bunch, save a few. They’re great for snacks when you need something to grab.

Thanks for sharing your muffins this morning! They were delish!

Heather said...

I haven't come across almond flour before. Is is the same as ground almonds or is it finer?

Mariko said...

It's finely ground almonds, pretty much the spot right before they become almond butter. You can grind your own in very small batches in a coffee grinder, or you can just buy it. Bob's red mill is probably the most commonly found brand at supermarkets-- definitely Whole Foods or other natural style grocery stores. I actually bought mine on-line.

Pretty pictures! Interesting combination of sweet potatoes and coconuts. I'm going to try this recipe.

Mario, can you explain what lilikoi purée is? Does it include the seeds or is it just the juice? I want to make the creme brûlée that you published yesterday. Thanks.

Mariko said...

Yes. The puree is the concentrated juice, directly from the fruit. You scoop out the pulp, blend it just enough to break the sacs from the seeds (the seeds get munched up a bit in the blender), and then strain out the bits of seeds from the juice with a sieve. So it's super sour, intense puree.
does that help?

The main purpose of collagen anti-wrinkle eye patches is to moisturize the fragile skin under your eyes. As i discussed in another article, skin around eyes contains less amount of sebaceous glands which makes skin during this area to be susceptible to dryness. Also skin around eye is far thinner which makes it very delicate and susceptible to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Good moisturizing is extremely important for this area and patches are excellent addition to your regular skin care. If you want to purchase it visit here - COLLAGEN ANTI-WRINKLE EYE PATCHES. Within the beginning patches resembled Band-Aids: they were made out of fabric and were soaked in emulsion that made patches very sticky. Patches were very expensive and not many of us could afford it. Nowadays, collagen anti-wrinkle patches are relatively affordable and anybody can buy them.

Fahrzeug selber beschriften- Sie haben vielleicht Labels wie 4MATIC, GDI und GTI gesehen und sich gefragt, was sie bedeuten.In der Welt der Automobile sind einige Schilder und Etiketten nur Ergänzungen nach dem Inverkehrbringen, andere haben eine Bedeutung, die für einen bestimmten Automobilhersteller maßgeblich ist.
Das Schild könnte ein Automodell sein oder etwas, das Ihnen unnötige Ausgaben oder Unannehmlichkeiten erspart.
Beachten Sie daher beim nächsten Autokauf die verschiedenen sichtbaren und unsichtbaren Etiketten.
Abgesehen von Fahrzeugnamen, die offensichtlich sind, gibt es normalerweise andere Etiketten auf Fahrzeugen, die die Motorgröße des Autos angeben oder den Benutzer über die Art des Kraftstoffs informieren, den das Auto verbraucht.
In der Kraftstoffverbrauchskategorie bedeutet „D“ in Symbolen wie CDI, TDI und D4D normalerweise, dass dieses bestimmte Auto nur Diesel verbraucht.
Einige Autos haben ein 4WD-Schild entweder auf der Rückseite oder an den Seiten des Autos. Dies steht für "Allradantrieb". Solche Autos können mühelos durch raue oder rutschige Oberflächen fahren, wo andere dies nicht können.

Cannabis oil is believed to supply benefits for the subsequent conditions also, although more studies are needed:
Cannabis oil may help people with mental disorders like schizophrenia because it reduces antipsychotic symptoms.
It are often used as drug abuse treatment because it has been shown to switch brain circuits associated with addiction. It’s further been shown to scale back heroin-seeking and morphine dependence behavior in rats.78
In animal studies and test-tube studies, it's been shown that CBD has anti-tumor effects. It’s also been shown to stop the spread of lung, colon, brain, prostate and carcinoma in animals.
Treatment with CBD has the potential to scale back diabetes and it also reduced inflammation. It, therefore, acts as a superb diabetes prevention method.
