Over the past few months of having to go dairy free, sugar free and gluten free for Alivia's stomach problems I've learned a lot about being creative with my food. Basically I've been eating all whole foods - fruits, veggies, meat, etc. I don't get the convenience of processed or packaged food and that can be challenging. But this muffin recipe from my mom was one I was able to adapt and it's perfect for when I'm craving bread.
Mix the following:
2 1/4 cup gluten free oatmeal
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
Mix the following together and then add to the dry ingredients:
3/4 cup coconut milk (regular milk works fine if you aren't dairy free)
1/3 cup honey or real maple syrup
2 large eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla
Then you can add anything your heart desires like blueberries, bananas, craisins, any small diced fruit.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
I have these baking right now because they'll be a good snack for Alivia. It's hard since she can't eat wheat, so toast, small pieces of bread and that sort of thing are out. I think she'll really like these. And they freeze great!
Speaking of food, someone had a little too much fun with their yogurt tonight.
