Ingredients
  1. 1.5 flax eggs
  2. 1/4 cup olive oil
  3. 1/3 cup mashed very ripe banana
  4. 2 sweet apples, finely grated
  5. 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  6. 1/2 tsp sea salt
  7. 1.5 tsp baking soda
  8. 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  9. 1/2 cup plain almond milk, unsweetened
  10. 2/3 cup gluten free rolled oats
  11. 1/2 cup almond meal
  12. 1 cup + 2 Tbsp gluten free flour blend
  13. 1/4 cup raw walnuts (chopped) for topping
Instructions
  1. Prepare flax eggs in a large mixing bowl and preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).
  2. Prepare muffin tin with liners or lightly grease them.
  3. To flax eggs add mashed banana, olive oil and whisk to combine.
  4. Next add the apples, coconut sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and whisk to combine.
  5. Add almond milk and stir.
  6. Add oats, almond meal, gluten free flour blend and stir.
  7. Divide evenly among 12 muffin tins, filling them all the way up to the top, and top with crushed walnuts (optional).
  8. Bake for 32-36 minutes, or until deep golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. When you press on the top it shouldn’t feel too spongey, so don’t be afraid of over baking! The GF blend just takes longer to bake.
  9. Remove from oven and let set in the pan for 15 minutes. Then flip on their sides still in the pan to let cool completely.
  10. If you try to unwrap them too quickly, they have a tendency to stick to the wrappers.
  11. Once cooled, store in a covered container or bag at room temp to keep fresh. Freeze after that to keep fresh.
Notes
  1. If baking in a loaf pan or cake pan (8×8), bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour and check every 5 minutes thereafter for doneness.

Happy Brand New You!!!

2017

OMG 15 days have passed since we have welcomed 2017 and yes, It has been ages since my last post, I am well aware…since March last year to be more precise (WOWWW)…. However…However… this is not without good reason. And in this instance that reason takes the unmistakable shape of Relocation with pretty much brand new everything! Brand new location, brand new flat, brand new routines, schools for the girls, brand new community, new friendships, new neighbours and everything else you can imagine. After five years of living in our beloved Apartment in Taipa and after counting endless months (more than a handle ;)) in Macau, we upped sticks to the sticks…. well to not that far…to our dear neighbour –> Hong Kong… But more about that later, Now we focus on keep going into 2017 right, we focus on keep rolling with the Resolutions, we focus on keep going recharged, rejuvenated and absolutely ready to embrace this brand new chapter of 365 pages.

The new year is the perfect time for a clean start and a new outlook on what you want to achieve this year. Whether is boosting your endurance, getting into shape or simply make more time for yourself, consider this a chance to make your brightest dreams a reality. It’s  an opportunity to reflect on the past and to challenge yourself to new begginings.
