Organic Spelt Muffins with Cheese Chives & Onions (Vegetarian)

Hello everyone and welcome,

Are you in need of something new for breakfast?

I have something that may just do the trick. It’s quick, easy and delicious. These muffins are savory with a hint of sweet. They are the perfect quick, grab, and go breakfast option.

These muffins were a huge hit which means it’s time to share!

Ingredients

2 Cups of organic spelt flour

1 Cup organic applesauce

1/2  organic cheese ( I used 1/4 C sharp & 1/4 C mozzarella)

1/2 Cup grapeseed oil or avocado oil

1/4 Cup organic brown sugar (DIY here)

1/4 Cup organic chives

1/4 Cup organic onions

1  1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt


Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 320°F and line a muffin tin with liners.
  2. In a large bowl add applesauce, oil, and brown sugar. Mix to combine.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and mix everything together.
  4. Fold in chives, onions, and cheese. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop batter into your lined muffin tin.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

This recipe yields 15 muffins.

We really enjoy how light these muffins are coupled with the fact that they have a mild savory and sweet flavor. You can use different types of cheeses and herbs to make the recipe your own.

I hope you will give this recipe a try and enjoy it as much as my family and I do.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.

Hello everyone,

Welcome to……

wpid-textgram_1446521642.png

I have been so intimidated when it comes to this dish. I just didn’t feel confident that I could get the grits to have the right consistency. Well, today I decided to just go for it. I’m glad I did because it really paid off.

Let’s get cooking……….

1 lb. Fresh Large Wild Caught or Organic Farm Raised Shrimp
1 Cup Organic Polenta Corn Grits ( or grits of choice)
4 Slices of Turkey Bacon
1 (8 oz.)– Pack of Baby Bella Mushrooms
1/4 Cup of Green and Red pepper (diced)
1/4 Cup of yellow onion (diced)
1/2 Cup of Extra Sharp Cheese
1-2 Green Onions (Finely chopped)
4 tsp unsalted butter (I prefer Kerrygold butter)
3 Clove of Garlic (minced)
1-2 Tbs of Grape Seed Oil or oil of choice
1/2 tsp onion powder
Salt and Pepper

Instructions:

Cook your grits according to the directions on the package. Once they are done remove from heat add butter, 1/2 tsp of black pepper and cheese. Stir to get everything nice and smooth.

While your grits are cooking, cook your bacon. Nice and crispy.

In a pan on low heat add a couple tablespoons of oil, your minced garlic and allow to warm for a few minutes ( allow the garlic to infuse the oil without burning).

Next add your yellow onion, peppers and mushrooms. Sprinkle in 1/2 tsp onion powder and black pepper. Turn your heat setting to medium and cook until your mushrooms are nice and tender.

Now add your peeled and deveined shrimp. They will only take a few minutes to cook so be sure to stir them every 30 seconds or so, as soon as they have turned pink and curled up they are ready to take off of the heat. Approx 2 mins per side.

Finally, it is time to plate this delicious meal. In a bowl ladle in your grits, top with the mushroom, onion, peppers and shrimp. Finely cut and add green onion, crumble 2 bacon slices and place on top.

This dish is superb. Better than restaurant quality.

Full Flavor Healthy CrockPot Macaroni & Cheese made with Whole Grain Pasta

Macaroni & Cheese has been a favorite since I was a little girl. In my family mac & cheese never came from a box “EVER”.  The women in my family have always been serious about their cooking.  Whenever I went to visit my grandmother she always made me my favorite dish and boy oh boy…….she made the best.  She made the best everything and always made everything from scratch.   Now that I have share some good memories……..let’s make some HOMEMADE Macaroni & Cheese.

image

Making this in the crockpot was a first for me. Since it turned out great I had to share.

Ingredients
  • 13.25 ounce medium whole grain shell macaroni
  • 1 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup skim or plain almond milk
  • 1/2  teaspoon salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2  teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 cup of Shredded Sharp and 1 cup of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese or cheese of choice
  • 1/2 cup of cauliflower puree (optional-add’s extra fiber)
Instructions
  1. Cook the macaroni following package directions. Drain in a colander and rinse with hot water. Drain well.
  2. Generously oil the sides and bottom of your slow cooker (I use about 1 tablespoons of  olive oil).
  3. Combine the macaroni with the remaining ingredients in the slow cooker and blend well. Cover the slow cooker and cook on LOW for 2½ to 3½ hours, stirring a few times.
  4. When the macaroni and cheese is done, feel free to spoon into a baking dish, top with a little more cheese, and put under the broiler for a minute or two for that “fresh from the oven” look and sprinkle paprika over the top to finish it off

I love taking a recipe and finding ways to make it healthier and not loose the delicious flavor.

Enjoy & Until Next Time,
