Healthy Blueberry Muffins

Healthy Blueberry Muffin RecipeMore blueberry recipes!! So since I got a bag of blueberries out of the freezer (picked and frozen last summer) I had to use it up! I made some pancakes, but that wasn’t enough. I wanted something healthy to be able to grab for breakfast before a workout or work! Blueberry muffins it is! There are easy ways to make muffins healthy. I chose to swap quite a few ingredients, but you can just replace one or two to make a slightly healthier version without changing the flavor too much. These muffins are delicious, they aren’t overly sweet and taste so blueberry-y. Hmm..not a word. I love em!Blueberry

Ingredients:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1.5 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1.5 cup plain greek yogurt
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups blueberries- Fresh or thawed frozen ones

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and drain the blueberries. Combine all dry ingredients. In a separate bowl mix together the wet ingredients except for the blueberries. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just to combine. Fold in the blueberries. Spray a baking dish with olive oil, or use cupcake tins. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.Healthy blueberry Muffins

Crispy Cabbage Salad

Ingredients:

1/2 head purple cabbage
3 clementines or oranges
2-3 cloves garlic
1/2 small onion
1/2 cup dried cranberries
4 large carrots
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon olive oil

This recipe is much easier if you have a food processor or vegetable shredder. If not, no worries! It is still a simple dish to make. First chop the cabbage, carrot, onion, and garlic very fine and combine in a bowl. Peel and divide the clementines and cut each segment into thirds. I leave the skin on, but get rid of excess membrane. Add the clementines to the bowl along with the dried cranberries. Drizzle honey and olive oil over mixture, add cider vinegar, and toss to combine. Enjoy chilled! The colors are amazing!
