Muffins Muffins Muffins! Healthy and delicious recipies

Muffins are a great breakfast, quick snack or replacement for dessert…however store bought muffins are full of fat, sugar and other nasty chemicals that I can’t even pronounce! I have heard rumors (although I haven’t investigated myself) that TIm Hortons muffins are just as bad, if not worse, than their donuts!! AHHHH!! Try these easy healthy recipes for pumpkin and banana muffins. All are gluten free, have no added junk, refined sugar or unhealthy oils. I made the pumpkin muffins yesterday and ¬†can’t keep my hands off them! I forgot to add the pecan pieces on top but they still turned out great.

P.S. I use silicone baking Imagemuffin cups. They are AMAZING. No greasing (and adding calories) and no fighting with paper ones getting stuck to your muffin.

Homemade Hot Cocoa, perfect winter treat!

As the weather gets colder out, and the Christmas season is on its way a warm hot cocoa is just what you need! Most drinks from your local coffee shop can be full of calories and refined sugars which can do damage to any healthy diet plan. This is a recipe from my friend and roommate from university!

Ingredients:
-1 1/2 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 1/2 tbsp of your favourite sweetener (I use honey, sucanat, stevia or cocoanut sugar)
-dash of vanilla
-dash of cinnamon
-1cup of milk (you could use almond or coconut milk if desired)

Simple put all of this is a pot and whisk continuously until starting to simmer!
