Yesterday was my beautiful youngest daughter’s birthday. She is growing into her own person so quickly, and we are very proud of her. She is the Diva of the family. She’s the only extrovert and has been a bubbly ball of glitter and sparkles since the day she entered this world. She is our amusing contradiction that is going to be trouble as she ages. Her favorite colors are hot pink, glittery, lime green and zebra print. She loves make up, nails, purses and shoes. She also loves to skateboard, play in the mud, work on cars, and tell fart jokes. MOST of all she loves to eat.
From birth, food was a very serious business for this child. On the kids’ birthdays they get to choose what they want for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s their day, their food. The Spirited Dancer likes to create these elaborate menus. Her back up career plan, after choreographer, is chef. This Diva one, though, has particular tastes. For breakfast, her choice is Paleo Apple Butter Muffins and bacon. An odd combo but it IS quite yummy. We find nitrite, sugar, crap free bacon at a not so local grocery store. I would imagine that they have it at places like Whole Foods, but if you live near a Lucky’s or Sprouts location, that’s where we typically go.
I will soon be making more apple butter (this was my last jar) so I will post that recipe then, and link back to it, I promise.
Paleo Apple Butter Muffins
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup homemade apple butter
- 3 apples (we used Fuji) peeled and chopped
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well combined and smooth. Scoop into cups in a muffin tin (we use silicone cups in the tin, everything just slides right out). Bake @ 350 for about 20 minutes. Makes 10. Every oven is different, keep an eye on them.
Let them cool a little, then ENJOY!!
