I was craving something bready and muffiny today… And I had some pumpkin puree in the fridge.
So, I threw these together. I only nominally measured, so this ‘recipe’ is approximate.
Primal Pumpkin Muffins
(this made 12 muffins)
4 organic/pastured eggs (room temp)
1/4 cup local honey
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
1/3 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup sprouted organic pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup minced organic pecans
Mix all the top ingredients together with a mixer. Add the almond & coconut flour, mix well. Mix in the seeds & nuts.
Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
Bake in silicone muffin liners for 40-50 minutes.
Let cool for at least 10 minutes.
Nom down with pats of butter!!

Whoops. Here I am again… not posting for several days.
Well, I was busy, then I was not busy, then I just din’wanna. So.
But, I’m here right now!
Let’s see. Saturday the hubby & I drove down to Sacramento area (about 2 1/2 hours, each way) to meet up with some friends to go through the Train Museum and an enormous corn maze (in Dixon, CA). It was a lot of fun. We called it “meeting in the middle”, since they were coming from the Monterey area…
We ended up eating out for two meals (being on the road will do that), but I was REALLY proud of myself on making smart choices. Both restaurants were very accommodating. (Even the one that I asked for the veggies from one dish to replace the rice in the fish dish I ordered!)
Sunday, I processed the last of the plums – another 7 pints of BBQ sauce and another 4 of jam. *whew*
Hubby is in LA for a training course, so I’m on full dog duty. Oof on the whole getting up in the middle of the night thing… I mostly just yell at them to get back in bed. I know they can hold it for more than 3 hours. Mostly, they just want to be fed. They will often start asking for breakfast around 3:30 am or so. Fahgedabboudit! They can wait until 5, like the civilized beasties I want them to be. LOL
Anyway, my food… Continue reading
