I’ve been eating a Paleo diet for close to a month now. Almond butter has been my favorite new discovery. It is amazing. I’ve been putting it in and on anything in sight. I feel sort of freakish telling people I am eating this way, but I feel great. I’m also doing Bikram Yoga 2-3x a week on top of my usual gig at Latitudes. Who knew working out could be a full-time job? Yikes. Regardless of whether you are eating Paleo or not, try this recipe! Your kids may love it too! Be cautious of nut allergies, of course!
Just modified these to include flax seed meal (just a tbsp or so), nutmeg and vanilla. So good – and good for you (unless you have a nut allergy, then you’re in trouble!) Paleo Muffins: 3/4 cup almond butter 1 cup almond flour (or ground almonds) 2-3 medium ripe bananas, mashed, 2 egg,s 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
