So raise your hand if you like cornbread?...everyone!? GREAT!
This recipe is probably one of my favorites that my mother makes. It has chia seeds which basically look like little bugs but are full of so many health benefits.
Chia seeds are filled with anti-inflammatory Omega-3's and antioxidants. For just 2 tablespoons, it has 11 grams of fiber , 4 grams of protein, and contains a significant amount of calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. So basically....you should put them in everything you make ;)
Chia seeds are also very versatile. You can put them in your oatmeal in the morning to thicken it up and add more substance, or you can sprinkle them into your yogurt for a little more a healthy topping.
Enjoy the recipe! :)
Ingredients Yield: 9 slices
Preparation Time: About 10-15 minutes
Baking Time: 20-25 minutes
* Side Note: We like to use Silk vanilla soy milk. It gives it a slightly sweeter taste.
These bad boys look too good to be healthy right!? WRONG!
These aren't your typical calorie and sugar laden muffins. They have a healthy twist to them. They are made with some pretty awesome ingredients like BANANAS, GREEK YOGURT, and HONEY! What's not to love!
If you are not a baker...don't worry. These are so simple to make and do not take a lot of time at all. So give them a try and let me know what you think :)
Ingredients: Yield: 12 muffins
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
*Side Note: When you use whole wheat pastry flour, it comes out a lot more dense and somewhat flat. Still very delicious but if you like a lighter, more fluffy product definitely use the all-purpose flour!
* Side Note: You can either combine the wet ingredients by putting it all in a blender, or you can just put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix with an electric mixer.
These muffins are best served warm, and even better when kept in the refrigerator for the next day!
