Easy Coconut Muffins

Happy Friday!

I feel like a crazy lady today. I'm catching up on Laundry, cleaning, and doing some serious food prep for the week! This upcoming week is going to be a long and busy one. To get ready for it and decrease stress I've made a BUNCH of food for breakfast, lunches and Dinners. 

I've accepted a position as a Per Diem RN at Leominster Hospital in the Emergency Room, and orientation starts this week! I'm very excited to get back to the bedside... although I'm super nervous!

Here's how I made my Easy Coconut Muffins: Preheat oven 350- makes about 10 muffins (They freeze well, So I always make a double batch!)

  • 6 eggs
  • 4 T. coconut oil
  • 1/3 C. honey
  • 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 C. coconut flour
  • 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 6 T. coconut flakes
  1. Grease or use muffin cups in baking tins.
  2. Beat eggs, add coconut oil, honey, vanilla and salt.
  3. Add in coconut flour and baking powder, mix well.
  4. Lastly Fold in coconut flakes.
  5. Fill tins with batter- about 3/4 of the way.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Keeping an eye on them. Once you see browning on top, they're done!

Zucchini Crust Pizza

Pizza is good. But Zucchini Crust pizza is really good! I made this recipe this past summer with all the zucchini from the garden and never shared it with you guys- I know, how rude! So here goes my version-

You need:

  • 2 medium Zucchini
  • 1/2 c. light mozzarella or mixed cheese
  • 1 egg- beaten
  • 5 T. Almond Meal
  • 3 T parmesan cheese
  • 1 T. oregano
  • 1/2 t. garlic
  • dash of salt
  1. Shred the zucchini and place in microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 5 minutes then drain. I just used a mesh colander.
  2. Squeeze excess moisture from the zucchini (if you have cheese cloth use that, if not use a bunch of paper towels).
  3. In separate bowl, Mix together all other ingredients.
  4. Add in drained zucchini.
  5. Mix well, then form two pizza crusts on a greased baking sheet or pizza stone.
  6. Bake at 450 for 12-15 minutes.
  7. Carefully FLIP the pizza crust and bake for another 3-5 minutes. 
  8. Top with whatever you like, and heat again just so the toppings are melted.
  9. Enjoy!

I'm LOVING how the henna is beginning to look, I did another application and i'm almost back to my natural color! One thing I did do it use a whole box to cover every single strand, and it was worth it- time to order more!
