Helloooo February!

Is it safe to discuss muffins yet?

If you did a Whole30 or a little paleo re-set in January, you may be ready as can be for a baked treat.

Well, great news! Not only are these muffins so incredibly tasty, but they’re actually nutritious and pretty great from a macronutrient standpoint. Meaning, you don’t need to feel guilty whatsoever about consuming them…not that we’re capable of feeling guilt ‘round these parts, right? Right!

What exactly is a hummingbird muffin? Hummingbird muffins include pineapple, banana, and pecans. While they traditionally are made with all-purpose flour and sugar, I replace the wheat with almond flour and simply omit the sugar.

We end up with a moist, naturally sweet, fluffy muffin that is perfect for breakfast or snack. They’re grain-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and oil-free…basically an epic win!

I use Bob’s Red Mill Finely Ground Almond Flour for these muffins. As you already know, the majority of my baked goods are made using almond flour – it’s simply my favorite of all the grain-free flours because the texture turns out nice and fluffy, and I thoroughly enjoy the health benefits of it!

Let’s bake muffins!

Turmeric Kiwi Protein Smoothie | TheRoastedRoot.net

My mealtimes all revolve around protein. If you follow me on Instagram, I probably sound like a broken record, as I have mentioned many times in the past, I take a but first, protein approach to food. I make sure I get at least 20 grams of protein at every meal, and in the event that I snack between meals, I make sure my snacks are protein-centric as well.

In addition to making sure I get adequate protein throughout the day, I also tend to drink a smoothie for either breakfast or lunch. That may seem like a pretty light meal, but my smoothies are typically on the higher calorie end in the way of smoothies, and have a pretty decent macro profile.

I’ve found that having one liquid meal per day also helps with digestion – simply put, liquid is far easier for your body to process than solid food. In this sense, protein smoothies are currently a big deal in my life, as I usually drink them after I workout to replenish muscle glycogen and feed my broken down muscle fibers with protein.

One of the recipes I make over and over from this site is my Paleo Banana Bread. While I have been steering clear of bananas due to intolerance, I still make the bread for my friends and family regularly, and sometimes I even let my hair down and change it up.

If you’re new to my classic Paleo Banana Bread recipe, you’re in for a treat! This recipe is very close to the original, with a couple small changes. 1.) we need an extra banana for the fancy sliced banana top, because: why not?, and 2.) we’re making an almond butter glaze, because it is just the icing on the cake…or the glaze…on the…banana bread…moving right along.

What you need to know about this paleo banana bread recipe is the following:

  • Grain-free
  • Dairy-free
  • Oil-Free
  • Prepared easily using your blender
  • Ultra moist
  • Sweetened mostly with banana and a touch of pure maple syrup.
