Can I just say how happy I’ve been? Big dramatic, even stressful, but SUCH GOOD changes are occurring. And I’m really, really happy. 🙂 Celebrated all night, oh god it was fun. And weird. Oh so weird. 

 

ANYWAYS, this morning I made muffins. Heavenly muffins. 

 

1/3 cup coconut flour

Almond flour to make 1/2 cup full of flour

1/3 cup chopped pecans and walnuts
1/4 tsp baking powder
6 eggs
6 medjool dates 
1/2 cup liquified organic coconut oil
1 tbs cinnamon and/or pumpkin pie spice (I actually probably did a bit more) 
1/2 cup pumpkin purée
1 tbs pure vanilla extract
6 (Or whatever’s desired. This is also optional) melted dark chocolate chips 
5 chopped dark chocolate chips 
1/2 packet sweet leaf (Optional) 
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium sized mixing bow, combine eggs, vanilla, pumpkin puree, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon/pumpkin pie spice.
Blend with a hand mixer until smooth.
Add coconut flour to batter, and continue to blend.
In a small bowl, add pitted medjool dates, cover with 1 tablespoon of water and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds.
Mash the dates witha fork, add another tablespoon of water, and 
mash again.
Stir melted chocolate and melted coconut oil together
Add date mixture and melted chocolate/coconut oil to the mixing bowl, and blend until smooth.
Stir in the chopped nuts and chocolate chips
Place cupcake papers into a muffin tray, and fill each paper cup 3/4 full of batter.
Bake muffins at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

These were delicious! First clean muffins I’ve ever made! The family loved them. 😀

Next time I make these, I think I’ll try them with a tablespoon or two of light coconut oil to make the muffins more moist. 

Have a good turkey day everyone!
