Recipe Share: Homemade Blueberry Muffins

With Emma starting preschool, breakfast around here has been hectic.

I’m not used to leaving by 8:20!

I had picked up some mini blueberry muffins from Publix, but I went through two boxes of them in two weeks!

So, to Pinterest I went and found a few different recipes that I liked.

I wanted to use whole wheat flour.

I didn’t have any plain Greek yogurt to use.

So this is what ended up being my recipe:

Homemade Granola Bars

Who does’t love a good granola bar?

My oldest daughter recently took a liking to them, which I was thrilled about!

They’re a healthy snack and one more thing she’ll actually eat! SCORE!

Except, I was paying $5 for 5 granola bars. Yikes.

And she would eat like one a day.

So pretty much every week, I was buying another box of granola bars.

I decided I wanted to try to make my own. How bad could it be? I had made granola before, so why not granola bars?

I scoured the Interwebs for recipes.

I wanted something with chocolate chips.

But still chewy.

Must be toddler approved.

I ended up using parts and pieces of a few different recipes. Here’s what I came up with:

Whole Chicken Recipe

I have been dreaming about food since I was on the 3-Day Refresh.

I took out a whole chicken to cook on Sunday night and we didn’t eat it until Thursday night! LOL

For our chicken, I cooked it on a roasting pan with a rack (so it didn’t sit in the juices and got all soggy)

I wanted it to be crispy!

Recipe: Coconut Oil Bulletproof Coffee

After being on the Refresh for 3 days (WITH NO COFFEE), I couldn’t wait to have my coffee the morning after…

When I first started drinking coffee, I was in college and it was Caramel Frappuccino (with extra caramel!)

After college, I drank it with creamer and sugar.

When I went “low-carb,” I used Splenda or another artificial sweetener.

After a few years,  I started going more organic and more all-natural, especially when I was pregnant, I became acutely aware that what I was putting in my body went right the the baby.

Here’s how I make my coffee every morning:

10 oz. organic brewed coffee (I use our Keurig)

1 tsp organic coconut oil

1/2 tsp agave nectar

1/4 cup almond milk

Blend! And Enjoy!
