Magical Muffin Mix for a Family Treat
Do you have all the ingredients on hand for this recipe? If not, it’s time to take a trip to the grocery store. Shopping is the most crucial part of this recipe. All the products you buy should include organic ingredients. It may cost a little more to shop organic, but the results in the final taste of the recipe make it well worth the extra money.
Once you’ve got everything together, it’s time to make the magic happen. In a large mixing bowl or blender, add the whole-wheat flour, melted coconut oil, milk, and Greek yogurt. Toss in the baking soda, raw honey, and vanilla extract. Blend everything until you achieve a smooth consistency.
The quality of ingredients makes a significant difference in the batter. For example, organic, unpasteurized milk and Greek yogurt have a rich and creamy taste compared to pasteurized products. Raw dairy is a living food. It comes packed with live bacteria that improve gut health and help with the digestion of the meal. Raw honey is another probiotic food containing beneficial enzymes great for your gut biomes. (1)
After you’ve finished the first stage of the batter, take the bananas and egg, blending them in the processor until smooth. Ensure you use free-range eggs. When you crack open a free-range egg, you’ll notice the yolk has a darker orange color when compared to a commercially laid egg. Free-range hens eat a better diet have no exposure to antibiotics and hormones found in the foods of commercially farmed chickens. (2)
Blend the two batters and fold in the dark choc-chips. It’s better to use dark choc-chips than milk choc-chips. Dark cacao contains antioxidants that clear the bloodstream of free radicals. The chips also contain far less sugar and provide the recipe with a richer taste.
Grease a muffin tin with grass-fed butter and add your muffin mix. Place them in the preheated oven at 350ºF. It takes around 20 to 25-minutes for the muffins to bake. It’s best if you leave the kitchen while they cook. These muffins produce an intensely delicious aroma that sweeps through your home. The family will appear out of nowhere looking for a snack, and you might be tempted to withdraw them from the oven prematurely due to their nagging.
When they’re ready, pull them from the oven and let cool for 10-minutes before allowing your kids to attack the chocolatey goodness.
