Hello! Yes, Hi- It’s me. I am back. It’s crazy that two three weeks have gone by since my last post. I feel like I have so much to write about since I’ve been so busy, but as I sit here, I realize that there truly isn’t much. AJ was at a work-related training in Texas for the two weeks, so Aiden and I were on our own. It honestly wasn’t bad, but there truly wasn’t any extra time for doing my own thing, such as blogging. But, I have to say, having all the baby snuggles to myself is rare, so I soaked it up every chance I could!
While I wasn’t able to physically work on blogging, it gave me so much time to think about it. I’ve been so focused on food lately, which is great because I absolutely love it, but I still feel like something is missing. The truth is, I am really passionate about a healthy and active lifestyle. Overall wellness. I like creating and sharing the healthy recipes I make; I like helping people find a fitness program that works best for their lifestyle and goals; I like experimenting with different foods, products, and workouts to see how it affects my body and use that information in a useful way to help my readers (you guys). And now, with a little one, I think I can add value by sharing my recipes, workouts, etc that I use to get/stay fit as a new mom.
I don’t necessarily know how I am going to incorporate the active lifestyle portion to the blog, but it has definitely been on my mind. I’ve considered creating a YouTube channel for my workouts and healthy recipes; creating an entirely separate blog for wellness related topics for mothers; simply using a social media platform (such as Instagram) solely for fitness and healthy eating with a baby; and so much more. I truly don’t know what would work best with my lifestyle right now.
One of the problems is that my daytime job takes up so much of my mental energy. By the time I get home, feed the baby, cook dinner, walk the dog, ect, the last thing I want to do is stare at a screen for a couple extra hours. I usually end up just playing or snuggling with Aiden, as I should.
For now, I think I will continue pondering the idea, and perhaps start writing a couple posts on my workouts, how to eat healthy in different situations, my favorite go-to snacks, etc.
Now, enough of that. Lets get to the real reason you’re here. These Healthy Banana Blueberry Muffins. They are moist and delicious. My brother was visiting and between the two of us, we ate 9 of the 12 within 2 hours. Yep. Im not going to say who ate more. Lets just say these healthy banana blueberry muffins were pretty dang tasty. Tasty (and clean enough) where you can eat more than one. No guilt here!
Muffins are one of my favorite on-the-go breakfasts, especially when they are healthy and keep me full until lunch. Lately, I've been loving banana blueberry desserts, so I decided to put all that deliciousness into a muffin. This one-bowl recipe is easy, made with all real ingredients, and the perfect healthy breakfast or snack!
- 2 medium bananas very ripe, mashed
- 3 medium eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup honey (or pure maple syrup)
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1/3 cup tapioca flour
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1-1 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
Preheat oven to 350º F and grease 12 medium muffin cups.
In a large bowl, whisk together the mashed banana, honey, eggs, vanilla extract and lemon juice.
Throw in the almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well combined.
Fold in the blueberries. Using a measuring cup or large spoon, scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tins.
Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the tops begin to turn tan and a toothpick comes out clean. All ovens vary, so make sure to keep an eye on them after 20 minutes.
Let cool for 10 minutes. Serve warm, with a tad of butter on top, or straight out of the pan.
