Whats This?

This recipe blog is an extension of my original blog Motivation... Determination... Drive. Having been asked numerous times what is involved in paleo eating and the simple question "so... what can you eat?" I have decided to put this collection together. Some of the recipes will be original, and some will be modifications (or replicas) of recipes I have found in cookbooks books or on line. Every recipe listed will be something I have tried, nothing that I think just looks good and want to attempt. As a disclaimer, I will not take credit for those found at other sources, if you are to use one listed with a link attached please give credit to the original site. Thank You and happy eating!!

Paleo Banana Blueberry Muffins

I am a huge "pastry" fan. I dont eat them much anymore, simply because I could just eat pasty all day long and gain 5,000 lbs easy. When I was a kid I ate a lot of baked goods for breakfast... My mom would even make me my own confetti cake (no frosting) and I would have it for a weeks worth of breakfasts and snacks. I could house pop tarts, muffins, toaster strudels for days. I gave it all up, for the most part... when I changed my life a few years ago. Its still one of my hardest hurdles when someone brings something to work to share or we have a meeting and they are on the conference table.

We like to have a real breakfast, together, as a family on Sunday mornings. Its the only day that we are all together. Often times I make waffles or pancakes and Hubs makes eggs and bacon. I have a great paleo waffle recipe (really simple) and I look for new things to try all the time. I try to make them healthy and as clean as possible. This is for Z's benefit too!

This weekend we had breakfast with #2 and her family! I wanted to bring along a baked good... because thats what I do... and decided since I love blueberry muffins... that I would give them a shot! This recipe is great. They were "moist" and delicious! Give them a shot!

Recipe: Paleo Banana Blueberry Muffins

4 Bananas
4 Eggs
1/2 C Almond Butter
4 Tbsp Coconut Oil (melted)
1/2 C Coconut Flour
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Vanilla
1/4 Tsp Salt
1 Container of Blueberries (approximately 1-1/2 C)

Preheat the oven to 350 and line muffin tins with liners. This recipe made 31 muffins for me.

Mash the bananas with a hand mixer. Add eggs, coconut oil, vanilla and nut butter. Mix well. Add the coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt and mix again. Fold in blueberries with a spatula.

Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes then remove from the pan and let cool on a rack completely.

I would refrigerate these if you don’t eat them all right away. I find blueberry muffins don’t keep for a very long time.
