Apple Cinnamon Gluten Free Muffins and Kettlebells for 5 minutes


Apple Cinnamon Muffins
Gluten Free





I've been on a baking kick lately, mostly inspired by my daughter who has recently needed to avoid gluten and dairy. I still give her sprouted whole grain bread from time to time, which she does well with. When 3 out of the 4 kids are able to eat bagels, pizza, ice cream and mac n cheese with no consequences, it can be very difficult for the 1 child who can't eat those things. This is why it's imperative I continue to make delicious food that all the kids can enjoy! 

These muffins can be used for breakfast, snack, dessert or taken on the go. I made them last night and put them in the fridge after they cooled.   This morning this moist apple pie tasting muffin tasted even better than last night!

This tastes very similar to a gluten free apple cake I made years ago, which was very yummy! For that recipe check it out here. This recipe was inspired by my favorite gluten free  chef Elana Amsterdam at www.elanaspantry.com. I made several minor changes to lower the sugar and the sodium content while upping the protein.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp himalayan pink salt
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup tapioca flour or arrowroot powder
1/4 cup grapeseed oil or coconut oil
1/3 cup honey
2 eggs
1 T vanilla extract
2 apples peeled, cored and chopped well.


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line 12 paper liners in muffin tins.

Mix all of the wet ingredients well in a bowl.  Combine all of the dry ingredients in a separate large bowl. Then stir the wet ingredients in to the large bowl with the dry. Slowly fold in the finely chopped apples until it's mixed well. 

Fill each muffin cup with mixture. These won't rise very much. I filled them up and was able to get 12. 

Bake for 35-40 minutes until the tops become brown. The center will be very moist at first. Let them cool for a 30 - 60 minutes and then put in fridge or serve after when cooled. I'm sure vanilla ice ream would be amazing on top. Feel free to let me know!

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me. WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga

5 Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway

My blog was born March 10th of 2007, 5 years ago, with this  post  that started it all.  It all started 6 weeks after giving birth to my first baby.  The purpose of this blog was to share my journey of embarking as a new mother recovering from a C-section, lost strength, and fitness.  I wanted to share my struggles and perseverance in getting back to my pre-pregnancy self all while enjoying my new road in to motherhood.  I felt this was an easy and convenient way for friends and family that live all over the world, to see photos of my children and updates about our life.  What an amazing experience it  has been for me.  I never thought blogging my experiences would turn in to so much more.  Through my blogging I got the chance to connect with so many wonderful people around the world.  I never fully understood how powerful the stories would effect so many people.   It's truly been an honor.  Being able to continue to drive motivation and hope in to someones life by sharing my life
