Wild Eats: Green Muffin Recipe

These green muffins may look a little scary, but trust me - they taste AMAZING!! They are healthy, easy to make, and a great way to sneak in some greens. ;)

Here's What You Need:

  • 3/4 cup of almond flour
  • 3/4 cup of protein powder (I like Perfect Fit Protein)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • sprinkle of chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup of kale
  • 1 tbs of melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk

Here's What You Do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Combine all wet ingredients plus the kale in a blender, and blend until well blended. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Spray a muffin tin with cooking oil spray, and then pour the batter in. Bake for 20 mins, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.

Enjoy!

Primal Kitchen

I love trying out new food products that are made with healthy, good-for-you ingredients. Primal Kitchen sent me a box full of some of their products to try out, and I was SO excited to get my hands on them. Primal Kitchen consists of "Primal-inspired salad dressings and condiments full of healthful, natural fats, superfoods, antioxidant-rich, high-ORAC-scoring herbs and spices… with no offensive, synthetic vegetable and seed oils and no artificial colors, flavors or fillers!" ...Sounds good to me! Basically, they believe that you shouldn't have to sacrifice great taste in the name of health. You CAN have both. 

Ben and I have been cooking with the Avocado Oil from Primal Kitchen, and we have been loving it! The flavor and scent is very mild, so it doesn't over power the dish. It is made with cage free eggs, and is non GMO, sugar free, soy and canola free, gluten free, and dairy free. It's also rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. 

The Dark Chocolate Almond Bars are super tasty and are a great, healthy snack that's perfect for taking with you on the go. Plus, these bars contain more collagen than a cup of bone broth...which is amazing! They are made with grass-fed collagen, are non-GMO, sugar free, soy and canola free, gluten free, and dairy free. Hard to beat!

My favorite products are the salad dressings. It is SO hard to find healthy, good-tasting salad dressings. Most salad dressings are full of really really unhealthy ingredients. OR if they are made with healthy ingredients, they taste bland or just downright gross. The Primal Kitchen salad dressings taste amazing AND they are made with ingredients that are actually good for you! There are two flavors: Honey Mustard Vinaigrette and Greek Vinaigrette. Both are made with cage free eggs, and are non-GMO, sugar free, soy and canola free, gluten free, and dairy free!

Primal Kitchens also has a healthy Mayonnaise for sale that is supposed to be AMAZING. I haven't tried it yet, but I'd really like to! 

Go ahead and check out Primal Kitchen if you haven't already. What we put into our bodies is SO important. The ingredients in Primal Kitchen products are ones that you can feel good about fueling your body with!
