Healthy Recipes..

.. that I am determined to make this weekend.

Single-Lady Peanut Butter Cookie

(Makes 1 or 2 cookies)

  • 2 T flour (I used ww pastry)
  • 1.5 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/16 tsp baking soda
  • very scant 1/16 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1.5 tbsp agave or maple syrup (Or use 3/4 tbsp each sugar and brown sugar, or 1.5 tbsp xylitol)
  • 1 tsp applesauce (or more, if using dry sweetener)
  • optional: add some chocolate chips if you wish!

Mix dry ingredients. Add pb and wet ingredients. Mix well and form into one or two cookies. Flatten into cookie shapes and bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 8-10 minutes. (I used my toaster oven. If you try this in a microwave, let me know how it works!) Note: if you use liquid sweetener, it’ll be more cake-y. If you use the sugar, it’ll be more chewy.

Blueberry Muffin for One

Makes one cupcake, Single-Lady style!

  • 3 tbsp spelt flour (30g) (or ww pastry, white, or Bob’s gluten-free)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • heaping 1/16 tsp salt
  • 1-2 tbsp blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp unrefined coconut oil (You can sub a different oil; however the coconut oil gives it a rich flavor and fun texture. You can use applesauce for a fat-free version.)
  • 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp milk of choice (Use less if using liquid sweetener.)
  • 1 tbsp sugar (or 1 packet stevia) I omitted, but most people will want some sweetener

Preheat your oven to 330 degrees. (Or see microwave note, below.) Mix dry ingredients, then add wet. Mix until just combined (don’t overmix), and bake for 17 minutes or so. (Baking time will vary, depending on the flour and oil/applesauce you use.)

Zucchini Apple Spice Muffins
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 30 mins
Serves: 9
Ingredients
  • 1 medium zucchini, shredded (about 1 cup worth)
  • 1 apple (I used gala), shredded (less than 1/2 cup worth)
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. So you first need to shred your zucchini. Use the shredding attachment on your food processor or take the long and boring route using a cheese grater. Whichever works.
  3. Once your zucchini is shredded, you need to remove the excess liquid. What I did was place a couple paper towels down on the counter, throw the zucchini on top, then place another paper towel on top of the zucchini then squeezed. The more you squeeze, the more liquid will come out. Genius.
  4. Use more paper towels as needed, but be sure to squeeze until the zucchini feels water-less.
  5. Place zucchini in a bowl.
  6. Now shred your apple. I left the skin on the apple and zucchini, but you don’t have to if you’re not a fan.
  7. Toss together your zucchini and apple in your bowl then add the rest of your ingredients and mix well.
  8. Place muffin mix in a greased muffin tin or with muffin liners or silicone muffin liners like I used!
  9. Bake for 15-20 minutes of until your toothpick comes out clean after you poke them!
  10. Top with a bit of coconut butter and you got heaven on your hands.
  11. Makes 9 muffins

Coffee Fudge Frosting
(I am nixing the coffee part lol).

  • 1 cup cashew or macadamia nuts (110g)
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp espresso or strong coffee (105g)
  • very scant 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup (10g)
  • 2 1/2 nunaturals stevia packets or 4 tbsp powdered sugar (or simply increase the maple syrup to 4 tbsp, and decrease coffee to 1/4 cup)

Place the nuts in a cereal-sized bowl and cover with water. Let sit at least 6 hours, or overnight. Drain the liquid, then combine all ingredients in a small food processor or blender until super-smooth. (I actually used my Magic Bullet for this. If your food processor is too big, you might need to double the recipe for smoother blending.)

Chocolatecoveredkatie is where I got everything but the zucchini muffin thing recipe**. I was going to delete that recipe but figured my mom being home all day and all she could enjoy a recipe too.

**Ohh, the recipe is from paleomg.com 🙂

Day 42 I’m strong because I know what its like to be weak.

10am Got up laid around with Marley for a little bit…. Didn’t eat till about noon.

1230ish Made steak and eggs but gave Marley most of the eggs.. I didn’t care for them at much.. Had a few slices of pineapple as well.

Decided that I could NOT go to the gym until my blog was finished lol. But WordPress is being pretty gay.. said my post was published when people were already commenting on it… and the pictures were suddenly not there any more 😦 so now I feel all fucked up.

Doing Hamstrings/ Glutes today 🙂

120pm Stomach is fucking hurting again. No flax no nothing.. I think it may of been the pineapple.. what the fuck. :(:( not good.

OHHHHHH and forgot! Made tofu brownies last night.. they weren’t bad at all but I really want to make the black bean brownies now.. I have a feeling they might be a WHOLE lot better 🙂

I don’t know where I got this recipe from.. probably from CCK.. but I don’t really know… :/

(Makes 8 brownies)

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup ww pastry flour (or white, or you can try spelt or gluten-free)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sweetener (see link, below, for lower-sugar version)
  • 1.5 oz  soft tofu or mori-nu firm or lite firm (about 1/8 box)
  • 1/3 cup applesauce (use only 1/4 cup if using 3T oil)
  • 1 to 3 T oil (I use coconut oil. Canola is ok too.)
  • 2 T non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional: you can throw in some chocolate chips

Combine dry ingredients, and mix very well. In a blender, combine wet ingredients and blend until smooth. (I use a Magic Bullet cup.) Pour wet over dry and stir, then pour into a 4×6 oiled pan (or double the recipe and use an 8×8). Cook for 12-18 minutes at 325 F. I’m not sure why this is the case, but these brownies seem to taste ten times sweeter if you don’t eat them for at least an hour after they come out of the oven!

My fudgey variation: (Highly recommended!) If you want them extremely fudgey– as in “so gooey you need a fork to eat them”—cook the batter for only 8-10 minutes. Then put the pan in the fridge to cool for at least a few hours.

Went to the gym around 330pm
