During my recent Advocare cleanse, I wanted to eat a lot of dessert as usual but obviously couldn’t indulge in regular baked goods. HOWEVER. I had hoped to improve my cooking and baking skills through writing this blog and realized I’d been given a golden opportunity to work with some new ingredients. Isn’t my life exciting?
I decided to use almond flour, which is actually just a bunch of super-finely ground almonds, and coconut oil, because I read that its neutral flavor is good for baking, to make some muffins. I also might try oil pulling with the coconut oil – have you guys ever heard of this? Apparently you can eliminate bacteria that causes everything from gingivitis to breakouts around your chin and jawline by swishing a mouthful of the oil around for twenty minutes every morning. Super weird but intriguing to me for some reason.
Moving on…I developed this recipe on my own, so I’d keep your expectations low. But it’s actually healthy – the sweetness comes only from honey and blueberries – and pretty satisfying as an alternative to heavier desserts. Let me know if you decide to try it!
