{Nourish} Healthy Cooking Video: Easy Almond Flour Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

 

Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe 

Healthy muffins are a staple in my meal prep routine. Great for on-the-go breakfasts and healthy snacks, you can whip them up in a cinch with just one bowl. Plus, they are easy enough that little hands can help. I used my MIX-AND-MATCH Morning Muffin Recipe as the foundation for this variation. Made with nutrient dense almond flour, they are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and really delicious. Just ask Hudson’s first grade class. They gobbled these up a few weeks ago! 

How To: 

To get the recipe, check out this blog post: Mix and Match Morning Muffins 

  • Add one ripe banana to the wet ingredients in the below recipe. You can even decrease the sugar a bit as the banana adds extra sweetness. 
  • I love mini chocolate chips because a few go a long way. We use 1/4 of a cup and they are perfectly chocolaty. 
  • Almond flour can be expensive, I get it! I swapped 1 cup of almond flour for 1 cup of rolled oats when I made these for Hudson’s class. They turned out great!

Katie Cavuto Rd

If you’re a lover of brunch, then you are going to love this Socca with Poached Eggs, Roasted Tomatoes and Fresh Basil from my cookbook, Whole Cooking and Nutrition. It’s an easy yet fancy upgrade to your everyday “dippy” egg, as we like to call it in my house. Freshly roasted tomatoes, savory and smoky Socca (a flatbread made from chickpea flour) and bright basil play beautifully with delicate poached eggs. The best part? Many components of this dish can be prepped ahead of time (see meal prep tips below) which will leave your workload as light as preparing the poached eggs!  Continue reading “{Nourish} Socca with Poached Eggs, Roasted Tomatoes, and Fresh Basil”
