Muffin Cakes


The muffin recipe I worked on yesterday was a total success. However, I would call these muffin cakes, rather than just muffins. Because the only flour used was almond meal/flour and they are more cake-like, than muffin-like.

While my muffin cakes were baking, I was doing this workout and I was one hot mess when I finished up. Even Zuzana said that it was one of the hardest workouts she had done in awhile. Give it a try; if you are looking for a quick, but challenging at home workout.

Make these as soon as you get a chance {you won’t regret it}. All 5 of the “hungry healthy” family members gave it a thumbs up!!

Recipe below. Enjoy your Friday and weekend everyone!

  2. Make your flax eggs by combining the ground flax with the water in a small bowl and allow this to set for approx. 5 mins.
