Clean Eating Blueberry Muffins

I had the whole day off with the kids yesterday and you better believe I took advantage of it!  I absolutely love being able to be home with them.  We made the most amazing blueberry muffins before 7am. Recipe below. Then, we headed to the park early to beat the heat.

I was very proud of myself for passing on the fast food and coming home to make myself the best salad in the world.  Lettuce, Salsa, Salsa Ranch, Guacamole, Cheese, and Chicken.  It was like Chipotle without the price tag, which to me is pretty much heaven.

Speaking of being a cheap mom.  $1.00 scarf ribbon material stuff from Wal-Mart makes for great headbands. 10370819_10153188209273009_2838459186634090314_n

And now speaking of hair… I did something a little crazy.  I’ve been wanting to do it for a long time and finally pulled the trigger after the kids left to go to their dad’s for the weekend.

I always color my hair purple.  It’s a really dark purple with a brown base.  I decided to go a little more bold this time and bleach my hair up before putting a pure purple pigment onto it.  I believe this may be my new look.  Ready?

Oh yeah, Kick Ash Mom’s new look.

It was getting dark so the picture doesn’t really do it justice but it’s purple all the way to the ends. I. Love. It.

I understand that it’s not going to be for everyone and some people won’t like it but I love it and to me, that’s what matters.

So who’s ready for the best blueberry muffin recipe on the planet?  100% Whole Grain with the most amazing crumble topping.  My kids at 6 mini muffins! For them that is a lot.

Yes children you may have a muffin but first mommy has to take 100 pictures to make sure I get a good one.  Poor things.

Clean Eating Blueberry Muffins

Cook Time: 15 mintues

Keywords: bake breakfast bread whole wheat flour Blueberries

Ingredients (18 mini muffins)

  • 1 1/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Rice Flour
  • (I like this mixture but if you want to just use whole wheat flour you can)
  • 1/2 Cup Agave
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/3 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/2 Cups Milk (Coconut, Almond, Grass Fed)
  • 1 Cup Fresh Blueberries

For Optional Topping

  • 1/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter, cold
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

Instructions

Preheat the Oven to 400 degrees.

Combine flours and baking powder in a bowl.

In a separate bowl combine honey, agave, coconut oil (melted), milk, and egg with a whisk.

Slowly incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry. If mixture is too thick as a little more milk.

Fold in the blueberries.

Scoop to the very top of a greased mini muffin tin.

To make Topping

Mix together coconut sugar, cinnamon and whole wheat flour. Cut in the butter with a fork. keep cutting until the butter is combined. It will seem like too much flour but it will come together as you cut.

Top the uncooked muffins with the topping and bake for 15 minutes.

(If baking in two batches keep the topping mixture in the refrigerator to keep the butter from melting.

Clean Eating Roasted Pepper Turkey Meatballs

Okay, whoever thought it would be a good idea to schedule a run after leg day is plum crazy. When I woke up and waddled down stairs, I decided about the second step down that yesterday would be a rest day.  A big fat rest day.  My rest day was scheduled for today but I feel much more like running when my legs don’t feel like rubber.

I’ve been doing amazing with eating clean lately.  It’s all I’ve been wanting.

A wrap with turkey, guacamole, and salsa ranch dressing, some left over veggies, and cottage cheese.

I also had a Greek yogurt.

Well, it’s all I want until my sister comes over with some delicious Jiff chocolate spread stuff. Amazing… first ingredient, sugar. Luckily, I’ve gotten really good at this thing called moderation.  Crazy I know. (I was trying out the hair parted in the middle thing.  I’m not sure if I can pull it off. However, I have some awesome plans for my hair in the future.  Awesome, I tell you.

This little girl wanted to go to school so bad she packed her book bag and lunch just to pick up Braiden. 4 day weekend!

I celebrated by getting them 50 cent corn dogs at Sonic!

Yesterday seemed to go by quick and before I knew it, it was 5:30 and I needed to get dinner on the table.

My quick go to for dinner in a pinch is always pasta.  I’m still on a roasted pepper kick so I decided some roasted pepper meat balls sounded lovely.

You really need to try this if you have a gas stove. It’s so much fun!
