Apple Banana Muffins

I have to say that I had a pretty spectacular weekend! What about you?! Now that I'm done with school, I finally have my weekends back to myself and I can do whatever I want instead of finishing last minute assignments. Because we all know how much of a procrastinator I am and always wait till the last minute to do something.

However, this procrastination has lead me to find out that I can bang out a 6-8 page paper in one day, the same day it is due, and still get a decent ~90% or higher grade on it. Yes! Not that that is a particularly good thing? Maybe? Thankfully I don't have to write anymore papers for the rest of my life!

Nope…no more schooling for this girl.

Also since I'm done with school, I can finally focus fully on my blog and organizing my work and life to get everything done in just a few short hours per day and then have a day off whenever I want! I think I finally have a concrete method to my madness and am not always worrying about what I need to do next, or who I need to contact or follow-up with or whatnot.

It's beginning to work out since the hubbs works such crazy hours. But he's on a weird rotation this month and has the weekends off… yay! A rarity around these parts. Which is the reason I have had to streamline, and now am able to streamline, my life and work.

So we spent some time out starting some Christmas shopping (gasp!!), going to dinner, and getting the kids some new clothes for winter. Ya know… cuz they grow like weeds and need new clothes, it feels like, every 6 months. But I digress…

I also did a little baking the weekend and made up these beautiful apple banana muffins from the 21 Day Fix Cookbook: FIXATE – and YES I am running another giveaway for the book! (Giveaway is now closed) I've teamed up with 3 other amazing bloggers: Whitney from That Square Plate, Paige from Latin Meets Lagniappe, and Johlene from Flavours and Frosting to help run the giveaway!

They have all posted one of their favorite recipes from the book so head over and check them out to get a better sense of the kind of recipes in the book — Banana Oat PancakesFlourless Chickpea BrowniesChocolate Chip Cookies. You can also see Pumpkin Energy Bites that I previously posted about.

These muffins were delish and my kids were happy to have them as a snack while we were out and about all weekend this weekend. I also feel good making sure that they are eating something that is healthy for them instead of the usual junk that you buy while out.

So whip yourself up a batch of these apple banana muffins and don't forget to enter the giveaway right below the recipe box! There are a ton of ways to enter… so make sure you do all of them for maximum winnage potential! Is winnage even a word? There is no red squiggly line under it, so it must be! haha.

You can make your own almond flour by processing whole, blanched almonds in food processor or blender until finely ground. Do not over process or you will end up with almond butter.

  2. I used a mix of almond meal (dehydrated from making almond milk) and gf flour just to make sure my consistency was right, and they came out really good, just a little bit dry, so maybe next time I’ll bake for a shorter amount of time! Thanks for the easy recipe!
