Hello my friends!
I am sitting here in Las Vegas, finishing up this post and thinking about how awesome it is that I can be anywhere in the world and share my recipes with you. It is pretty amazing. And now, I get to share my recipe videos with you. Yep, you heard right, The Everyday Feast will now be offering recipe videos along side the regular recipe layout. I have been working on this for quite a while and wanted to make sure I got something out to you that was visually interesting and showed how simple my recipes can be. I felt like this was the perfect recipe to start with since it is one of my favorites.
I have been tinkering with this recipe for quite a while, wanting to create a muffin that not only tasted like a non-keto muffin, but also would give me enough fat and protein as a quick breakfast or lunch on the go. It needed to be ultra satisfying but not too heavy and dense.
I enjoy having these as a little boost before a long run or workout, or if I am running around for the day. In fact, I really enjoy these muffins during a really long workout. They give me just the right amount of sustenance without weighting me down. They are easy to eat and pack, so I throw one in my running belt and, if I notice I need a little something, these are the perfect food to give my body the nutrients it needs to continue. These muffins will last up to a week in a sealed ziplock. They are SO SO SO SO YUMMY warmed with a little melted coconut oil and a cup of coffee with MCT Oil Powder.
This muffin is moist and ultra chocolatey, leaning more on the rich, dark chocolate side, then sweet. I find that now that I am fully fat adapted and have been Keto for about two months now, that I don’t need a lot of sweet to satisfy a craving. If you want something a little sweeter, just increase the erythritol a bit. The almond butter acts as a nutrient dense frosting with the crunchy toasted hemp seeds adding protein and a crispy texture I think all muffins should have. These muffins are far from boring. They are complex and flavor-filled, and only three net carbs, not that anyone will notice.
